They basically give the ball to their holdbacks and they muscle in against younger smaller kids and shoot 5 yards out, not much skill in that. Not really sure why Hawks bother showing up to tournaments seems like a waste of time for everyone.

Do you really think that there's any elite Level MD/DC team without holdbacks? I assume that the Hawks have a few, i know my son has a few, odds are your kids team does too. Stop whining
