Pack also lost to NXT and crabs. Wonder of how US Club Lax will factor those losses into their rankings. The pack was at NLF for madlax and they just couldn’t get it done. Get better for next year cry babies.

There is an excellent site for razors. Harry's. I've noticed a lot of facial hair on your boys. You may want to stock up before the next tournament so it's not so obvious.


FYI... I have a son in 4th grade who hit puberty and he is age appropriate. His Pediatrician gave him a puberty book to read because he thought it was weird what he's going through. He's also very strong for his age. Just saying. Some kids are naturally stronger than others at the same age.

No disrespect to your son who hit puberty early. That's out of his control - but this problem is real. There are serious risks. Especially at the 6th, 7th & 8th grade level. Everyone knows it's wrong - but parents do it anyways.

I'm not a Wolfpack parent but I classify kids who are re classed or held back for sports the same as I would for anyone using steroids. You should be proud of your kids who are excelling with an extra one, two or three years of testosterone. Just lame.


I know why people re-class kids to hopefully give them a better chance in HS/College but why play them at the younger grade on a travel team so, he can beat up on younger kids and you feel like they are a superstar knowing inside they are 1 or 2 years old. I play my son up when every chance I get can, so he will get better. That is just sad to have your re-classed kids playing younger, so they can just over power younger kids instead of challenging them with age base lax.

for Wolfpack parents, how do you think the kids who never play felt about leaving early? The consolation games would have been a nice way to get minutes for some of the bench players. Half the team sits in the sun cheering on their teammates. Such disrespect to not use the chance to play everyone to end the season.

Don’t have a dog in the fight. Kid plays for a Philly team. WP should have ended it like BL, Legacy and BBL did. You can’t quit in the middle of a tournament. Madlax NLF Championship Photo is crazy half those kids look like grown men. Understand that if they are all truly in 8th grade it’s not cheating but to brag about those grown men beating up on children all year is low and gutless! You guys are just as much a joke as WP.

I agree all the kids should play same year. Every other sport does it right, except this one. If my 13 year is going into 8th grade like normal. Your 13 year old is a genius and is going into 10th grade, your son is not cheating playing against my son. I don’t care how much back and fourth nonsense people say, the end of the day it’s 2, 13 year olds competing. On the flip side if your 13 year old, academically is slower and left back, by all means, I understand, it’s life, it happens. However your 13 year old competing athletically against 11,12 year olds is not right. Cheating is the wrong word because it’s grade based. It’s unethical, it’s not right, it’s an unfair advantage. If I was the parent of that kid, he would play up grade wise, to be fair age wise. 100 percent.

Taking nothing away from the pack, they are a great team. But are the parents really ok with not playing the game? Your boys have been on a crazy winning streak. It can’t last forever. Teach them to be gracious losers as well. If the other team bailed you would be on here beating your chests that the team was afraid to face the mighty pack.

I wish more people think and act like you on this topic.. but the unfortunate reality is you are the minority and your voice is silent. None of this will change in the foreseeable future. Let me guess what the responses will be: 1) Tough luck. Get over it. Don't play lax then. 2) Were #1 and you're a lost.

I am totally on the same page with you. Not all parents care about integrity. They don't care about the safety of other kids. Just in case they are not familiar with the definition here it is. "the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness"

What some teams will do for a free t-shirt... you would think that an entire team of holdbacks and double holdbacks would be enough. Incorrect. Add some kids that aren't even on the team, such as the 2023 DC Dog players and players from the 2023 Madlax team. The 2024 Madlax players are yacking it up on social media. Very proud of their cheating prowess. I imagine they will wear the t-shirt with pride. Am I the only one that feels like puking?

Bad lesson for the WP to send to their kids should of been there regardless

I am a 91 parent. Totally disgusting move. Nothing else to say, I can’t lie about how badly this reflects on all of us. Was hoping there was a story behind it like an injury that would have made it an honorable move.

I have been on htis site for many years, the same argument about holdbacks has been going on. This is not a safety issue, never has been, I have never seen nor heard of an injury based on a "holdback". This is about kids getting out played by older kids, pure and simple. So don't make it a safety issue, it disingenuous. I don't have a dog in the fight, my kids graduated, so as I said, the same argument has been going on, with no factual evidence to prove it.
