Many kids don't know what they want at these young ages. SO putting a kid playing 10U exclusively as a faceoff kid is a terrible injustice to him ad his family for paying to play. What age is a fair age to do just faceoffs?.That is the question.

Yes, people, some of them kids who have spent years learning FO, read this site. so if you have nothing better to do, go to the 2024 thread and tell them they shouldn't be excited about their kids playing lax...


You mean doing faceoffs and working on sprinting off the field.


Yes, exactly. after practicing with top level club for 2 hours, spending more time doing face offs and sprints.

FOGOs are on the very best clubs, where does your kid play? Good luck!

I agree. My son puts in countess hours working on his craft. Yes he's a specialist and proud of it. This boy is D1 bound with a great scholarship. We are very proud of him. F/O training has provided him with dicipline and perseverance. Qualites that will take him far in life.

Another rumor about the upcoming rule. "Withholding from play" will be the violation for carrying on the back of the stick. Here is the article.

That is great! Congratulations to you and your son. I don't have a FOGO, but I think it is a great position and like goalies, the hardest job on the field...

Kid either wins or losses, can't hide in that role. Team down by one in final minutes and your kid has the chance to get his team the ball--or better yet--win the FO and fast break for the tying goal. Great stuff!

For those that think the position isn't fair or doesn't require a "true lax player" I guess they haven't seen a kid win the FO, sprint down the field dodging long poles and shoot at full sprint to score a goal.

Does anyone really think that kid doesn't have lax skill? Of course he does and from what I am seeing this summer, some of the FOGOs are the best athletes on the field.

Shouldn't your best athletes stay on the field??? That would be some injustice to these kids . I hope you are not telling the truth. Please let these kids play the game and not be singled out for one thing. Please !!!!!!

Life is about doing what you do best to your best ability. Kids that choose FOGO do so because they are good at it and make an impact. Sorry to naysayers, but specializing in HS as a FOGO is a great choice if you can do it at a high level.

Get many looks at the best colleges and will make an impact.

If you live in a lax town, you know the boys are playing from 2nd grade, no one specializes until 8th...plenty of time to find out what you like...

I have seen a 4th grade travel team use it and send the kid off after the faceoff..I felt bad for the kid and parents.

The committee didn't eliminate the face today like many fans would like but they did outlaw carrying the ball in the back of the stick which is a great change.

Well, no matter what side you are on, it looks like the powers have changed the rule. No more carrying or picking up the ball in the back of your stick. to me, that means the pinch and pop move that some kids are really good at is now gone, assuming the proposal is approved on Sept 8...

Me, I like the move and thought it added excitement, but others clearly disagree.

Not so fast, this was a recommendation. My bet is it will never be passed. The "powers" are dinosaurs. They need to evolve with the sport. D1 Coaches will not approve this. Committee tried to do the same thing a couple years ago and it failed then too.

Not carrying the ball in the back of the stick will be approved. It is something that all in the sport except Fogos agree is not good for the growth of the game.
