USA Volleyball was called out on Saturday for how a breastfeeding coach was treated at a tournament in Colorado.

The Colorado Crossroads volleyball tournament is a qualifier event for athletes hoping to make the junior national team.

Colorado state Rep. Kerry Tipper reported what was going on at the tournament.

"Happening Now: Breastfeeding volleyball coach being told by @usavolleyball that she cannot bring her baby into the @crossroadsvb regional tournament in Denver," Tipper posted to Twitter.

The lawmaker offered her legal analysis of the situation.

"Baby doesn't take a bottle and mom must nurse. Colorado law REQUIRES mom be allowed to nurse," she wrote.

"Update - tourney director continues to refuse to let baby in. Says COVID guidelines prohibit admission of children under 16. But the tourney has players who are under 16," she wrote, adding a face-palm emoji.

"Obviously they can, have, and should make an exception under these circumstances," Tipper said.
