Within the rules. That’s rich.

It’s the truth... don’t like it then dont play club lacrosse. I could count the “holdbacks” on one hand and still have plenty of fingers to tell you you're #1. Just because they are big talented athletic kids doesnt mean they are older. Dont be sour because your sons team cant beat them.

I don't get it... there are many teams bigger than the 23 Hawks team. They have 3 or 4 big kids, mostly average size kids, and 4 or 5 very small kids. Sounds like any 7th grade class. There are just too many crybabies out there. Team Baltimore and Duke's were FAR bigger than the Hawks. Several teams in HoCo were also bigger.

That’s because dukes has kids that we’re in 8 grade this year playing for their 2023 team

Saw the True National team this past weekend at Tri-Lax in Jersey. Definitely a National team with players from all over the country. FoGo very good and middies but not exceptionally big. They played the BBL North team and controlled the face off 75% of time, they won convincingly but when in possession the BBL North played them well. Not in same class as Hawkes or Dukes.

This argument gets sooo old. One more year and it really won't matter. With that, I do think that tournaments should move back to an age based model. I have family and friends with kids that are 13 and when I asked what team they are playing wondering if my son born in June '05 might play them, they are also summer '05 they responded they are playing 2024. They did not "re-class" but held back in K for other reasons than lacrosse. First, it does give an advantage. Second, most strong teams are full of kids close to the age or past the age cut off. If there were a logical Sept or January age range, an age grouping would end this discussion. However, when a tournament is set up as grade based, then the teams are not cheaters and kids should not be called out they are doing what is within the rules. Making an excuse for losing sends a bad message. It is NOT a safety issue as under the old system and the rec system 7th and 8th graders play together.

No but they are cheating if they have kids that have already completed 8th grade playing against those that haven’t completed 8th grade.

Middle school is a wonderful few years for the kids, I see nothing wrong with doing an extra year or two. Think about how much easier it is on the parents in the future,starting sophomore year in HS the kids can drive themselves to school.

Hawks 2023 will be huge next year when all the 2022s hold back. 7 2021s held back and joined the 2022 team this past year on top of the kids who had already held back. Expect the same for the 2023s.

This is the big year in Maryland for kids that holdback for athletic purposes. It is almost comical at this point.

I would love to sit down and have an intelligent conversation with you clowns about all the comments on here. One day you’ll wake up and your son will be finished with youth lacrosse, HS lacrosse and all you will have is regrets of how you didnt let yourself and your child enjoy it. Get over all the bull and let your son play at his highest capable level and stop worrying about eveyone else.

With ACS coach departure/ex-communication from Crab Nation does ACS continue to be a thing? Were/are they planning to play in any additional events?
