My son played varsity in 8th grade and was 14 years old, good lacrosse town (played in county championship that year) he played in 1st quarter of games not at end of blowouts. each situation is unique based on team needs, players ability, maturity and physical development. I will never know if he would have developed better as a JV player for a year or two and maybe he would have but it is very hard to judge a kid a family or a coaches decision based on what you read on a web site.
