Just my opinion and curious as to who agrees. If a freshman is good enough to make Varsity I hope he is given a fair shake. If he is better then a junior or senior and has been putting in the effort over the years and outplays others he shouldn't be held back..its varsity lacrosse and the best should be the ones to play and not be grade based. So you would hope coaches don't make that mistake and give in to pressure from older kids parents

Top ranked teams off to a rough start. BL gave #3 Landon an [lacrosse] whooping yesterday 9-1 and #1 Haverford got smoked by Calvert Hall. Should be an interesting year.

I am going thru this right now, my son is a 9th grader and has been told he will start varsity this year. He has been working out with them last summer, fall and this winter. It seems like most of the kids are ok with him playing, but it seems the parents are the ones who have the problem. I will be sitting at the opposite side of the bleachers during each game. I really don't want to listen to the comments the parents have. in travel I hide in the corner so I don't have to listen to the crazy parents and now I have the same problem with High School

You may be right but scrimmages are just that nothing more- they mean nothing - each coach handles them differently so to put any credence in them is a mistake .... also rankings in general are a joke although it is fun to talk about them

to paraphrase Confucius: "If hate is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it" - don't hide from the haters, be proud of your son's accomplishments and sit front row, cheer him on and let him see you there being proud and not hidden.

Most coaches are not playing scrimmages to win. They are trying out different combinations of players to see who will eventually start. What works, what doesn't. If you think a scrimmage score is a strong indicator of team success, you are dead wrong!

I would offer up not to distance yourself like you do in club. Embrace your son's spot on the team. There may be times you scratch your head at your sons play and others, it happens. The good thing is the kids embraced him, if that is so then the majority of the parents will. Please don't alienate yourself from them and the total experience. You may not live in the same town as your club teammates. You do in Public HS. Enjoy the ride and good luck this season

My son was brought up in 9th grade to varsity. It was a great experience for him. Be proud of his accomplishments. As a parent I felt very little animosity from other parents. The only negative I really saw then and still see now is that some other players were and are overlooked by coaches always thinking of the next year and developing new young talent all while there are talented kids sitting on the bench. Actually develop is the wrong word.. if it had not been for the youth program and summer travel my son has not learned a thing ftom his current coaches. Some parents use the threat to take their 8th grader to catholic school if the coach does not bring him up next year. Unfortunately for our high school program the head coach buys in to this nonsense and let's a few parents dictate the varsity line up. Hopefully this year it will all work out.

not going to mention any high school names. but thanks everyone for the great advice, except for the one about my son being roasted. every kid will have his good and bad moments. it will just be that his will be more dissected than the other kids.

I am proud and will be his biggest fan. I just wont be dealing with any BS from other parents. I will let my sons play speak for itself and hopefully everything works out. He needs to step up and if he doesn't than it will be a learning experience
