Just heard from a PT parent that PT 2021 also got a 2020 AA Express North midfielder who reclassified.
And a 2020 PT Defenseman who also reclassified. 2021 is 9th grade, so it's not surprising and I'm sure there are a few more.
Um - no. 2021 is 8th grade!
yes as of now you are correct, but these were Summer tryouts for next year when the reclasses take effect. Our 2020 team went through it last year.
Anyone have some idea how many 2021 Primetime kids are now holdbacks/reclassed/overage? The adults in the room should be embarrassed. Exploiting kids for money, that's all it is. Funny thing is there doesn't seem to be a stigma attached to the kid who is "leftback". Maybe our overly politically correct society is to blame. Kids aren't shamed.
You are pathetic! Exploiting kids for money? Do you realize how many kids actually get money for college just for lacrosse?? Hardly anyone. AND...most private schools strongly encourage kids to repeat when going to their school for developmental purposes which has nothing to do with sports. Maybe you don't know how private schools work. Stop being jealous, if you kid isn't good enough to play with kids a year older then he probably just isn't good enough to get recruited or play at a high level, there are plenty of other teams for you. Go out and have fun. So tired of listening to all the whining about hold backs, re classed kids etc
The stupidity of this statement is that we are talking about 8th/9th grade, when playing against kids 1-2 years older should not be the projection measurement for a kid "to be good enough" to play Varsity lacrosse let alone D1 recruitment. So if my son is just starting to mature in the 8th grade but yet is not good enough to play against 9/10th grade age kids, he might as well trade in his stick in for a squash racquet? Again, we're talking 8th/9th grade here, not a PG year in 12th grade. And my son goes to Avon, so yes I know how private schools work, and no he's not a repeat. Your grade based system basically says, you might as well give up competitive lacrosse or just play for fun, (which all kids should be doing anyway) if you're not good enough to compete with older kids by 9th grade? Nice way to grow the game.
