Omg enough about hold backs.. It is what it is right now . Get your kid in the weight room, continue to work on stick skills & have him get his grades he will be fine. By 10th grade he should be able to compete with all grades the be a D1 player. If you're still complaining then maybe buy a set of golf clubs for you & your son & call it a day. Stop hating if they're not changing the rules.
