I would tell her the above, that this is the FLL policy and that it is not
fair to other teams, and that you have to uphold that.  I think that is
Gracious Professionalism.  It is a disappointment, and I agree that I would
hate to turn people away, but as the above states, it is not fair to other
teams to have one team where more than ten children were contributing to
the work, but then the team comes to the tournament saying they only had
ten members.  You could maybe offer that if someone drops out, she could
join.  Or maybe you can offer some support to help her start another team.
It is totally doable!

Also, I think that the kids don't have the same experience if there are
more than ten kids on the team.  They don't all get to really experience
everything that FLL is about and to really learn and have the best
experience.  It is a tough place to be in though.  Would you consider doing
two teams yourself?  If you had more parental support?  Maybe you could
split the group in two?

Good luck,
Coach of the Brick Dawgs
