The soccer coach should have a better sense of what is appropriate.  An adult coach paid for by all of us asking a child if he can pray over her is certainly not something a public employee should be doing.

Please tell me how praying for someone is inappropriate.

I agree. When there is a disaster and the President asks us to prayer for the victims, I would think that means it is okay to pray for anyone.

Maybe APS/ El Dorado HS was concerned about this statement:

“Literally, she did not move an inch, she was laying out on her face,” he said of the injury. “It was pretty scary … Our girls pray before every single game, but it’s student-led. So I went ahead and asked if I could pray with the team and I ended up asking the athlete herself if I could pray with her and she said yes. Who knew it would come back to be a big deal?”

Yep, there's nothing like being coerced into praying so you can be playing....

Seems to me that it's fairly cut and dried when you sign the contract.  Teachers/coaches/authority types aren't supposed to be praying with kids nor suggesting/recommending that they do so on their own.  Yes, it might be harmless or even beneficial but the rules are pretty clear.  In much the same way that it's ok if students date each other but teachers can't date the students.  Why is that so difficult for the Christians to understand?
