High school team, ministry split up (November 23, 2016)

A Missouri high school basketball team will not continue to partner with a religious ministry in its summer camp program, thanks to FFRFs involvement.

FFRF was informed of a constitutional violation occurring in the Eldon School District after the high school basketball team announced that it would be partnering with Sports Crusaders to host summer athletic camps for fourth- through eighth-grade students.

FFRF Staff Attorney Sam Grover wrote to Superintendent Matt Davis asking that the district end its school’s partnership with the religious ministry.

On Nov. 23, an email from Davis was sent to FFRF informing the legal staff that he had visited with the basketball coach to ensure this legal violation would not happen again.
