We play for Crabs 2020..4 holdbacks on 6th grade team, 7 on 7th grade team, added 3 more from 2019 team for beachlax but they were then held back. Also picked up other holdbacks from tryout so 8th grade team definitely has 10+ holdbacks. We love our Crabs experience but can't deny pattern of increasing numbers of holdbacks as a competitive advantage. Is what it is.
