Take this drama to the Hold back Forum.


There’s a holdback forum? Fun! Where? I want to read all the justifications.

Holdbacks dont go there. Cant justify letting specific kids get an advantage others dont .. Common sense

I have the solution! No need for a hold back forum. From now on, all of the MD DC holdback teams use the ‘23 board, and the ‘24 teams, that actually have ‘24 players, stay on the ‘24 thread! Makes total sense!!

Take it to the Madlax forum, and dont lump other MD clubs in with them.

I don’t blame you for not wanting to be categorized with Madlax, the ultimate in cheating vermine teams in youth sports. However, are the rest of the better MD teams much different? I admit they are classier teams, and parents, but do they really have less cheating holdbacks than Madlax? Maybe they do, considering Madlax is almost entirely holdbacks. But if your MD team is 50% holdbacks, and only that 50% of the players see the field in close games, are you that much different??

I wasn't aware colleges and high schools limited a kid's eligibility because his age doesn't meet the 9/1 date or isn't the same as it is up in NY.

It doesnt...But we are talking YOUTH lacrosse. Different world. Well different except to holdbacks who want an advantage most players dont get...The after playing against younger players the parents pat themselves on back and make excuses for holding him back

It's not against the rules. Don't play against them if you are so concerned.

No, you are talking about youth lacrosse on a 2024 Mid-Atlantic thread and it's exhausting. Grab your pitchfork and torch and try to convince any tournament or league director who cares. Guess what, none of them do. You are too young to understand but you are tilting at windmills.

Dude, you would've stunk anyway even if you were held back.

A double hold back is one thing, but a pre first kid at a private school isn't a sinister plot to overthrow LI.
Yes, it might be a disguised money grab for the schools, but generally parents don't have any recourse if the
school makes the decision. The decision is usually based on a kids maturity level and not so much on academic performance.

Such an intelligent, thought proving post. But seriously, as the parent of a post adolescent 15 year old Madlax holdback, what’s it like playing down almost three years and still losing? Must be very discouraging.

Lol. Too funny! I realize that your kid is suppose to be in HS, but 2024’s aren’t in HS. It’s your sons age that is confusing you. Age-wise, he’s in HS. Grade-wise he’s in middle school. So this conversation is about middle school age lacrosse. Not HS. Understand now?

Thank you for the Madlax DC perspective where all players start school a year later than everyone else. Holdbacks to Madlax is what anyone else would call a 2022 double holdback.

This post typifies the Madlax hold back parent absolutely perfectly!! Dude. A kid that starts school a year later, is a year older than his peers. He’s a holdback. Not a “sort of” holdback. A full fledged cheating holdback. Since ALL Madlax DC prep school kids are a year older from starting school a year late, they don’t see them as holdbacks. They think only their kids that start school a year late AND are then held back AGAIN are real holdbacks, of which they have many! Those kids will be 15 years old this year! On LI these kids would be 2022’s and FRESHMAN IN HIGH SCHOOL! You people have very twisted minds.
