My son plays with the Hawks. He is 12. My understanding is that NY graduates at a year younger than Maryland. That is the reason for the age discrepancy. The boys all graduate in 2026 though. As far as hold backs (meaning 13 year olds) I don't know the age of at least 3/4 of the team.
Do the kids on the hawks team qualify for WSYL in 2 years? If not, then yes, holdbacks. No 12 year olds on LI teams. Kids aged 9-11 on 2026 LI teams.
Not a coincidence that Annapolis Hawks (and most MD teams) NEVER show up to WSYL.
