Yeah, but hush schoolers, juniors and lower, can’t reclass now that have entered 9th grade, unless they sit out of year. I think that’s the way it works.

That is not true for some areas as these Freshman have not played an official varsity season or even a game. Enforcement will be lax and kids can move between public and private with no impact. There will be an increase in re-class for the 2023 grade to the 2024 grade.


Just how many additional parents are going to take on the expense of a public to private so their kid can play lacrosse?


May be some, just depends on the parent's ego and how good he thinks his son is.

It can go the other way, a parent now needs to send son to public, have not played any official games, they could re-class. I do know of some that are considering going public to private that were on the fence. The real advantage to the re-class kid will be next season's showcases, club events, UA team ect. Also this puts more distance between a player and the current recruiting logjam caused by the extra NCAA year.

I thought the 4 year clock starts in 9th grade. The question is, does this spring season count as one of the years? Because the season officially started.

Actually, something has changed. With the NCAA granting an extra year of eligibility, there will be some 25-26 year olds playing COLLEGE lacrosse at my sons school next year! They peaked at 18 in HS and haven't played too much since, so not concerned. Can't make this stuff up!


Again, big picture, nothing changed. Truth is hold backs dominated in HS and most dominated in college. It’s a fact that you can easily look up. Most parents detest it, but it’s true. And to the statement on 25-26 year old players, how many? One or maybe two. But at most schools, none.

Why not? If it gives an advantage.

You must be a child. A private school kid cannot transfer to a public school and be held back unless the kid is significantly behind in academics. Every kid has a cost to the state and the state wants them moving through the system as quickly as possible.

Gee, I don't know. Maybe because a public education is free and a private costs money, lots of it. Please stop posting.

Youth (through 8th grade) Age based calendar year groupings. There really is no logical argument against this. If you really wanted to take the other side of this argument the only possible counter could be 9/1 cutoff for when school/grade starts. August birthday, sorry Charlie. High school anything goes.

So true. It’s not even an argument. Up into 8th grade, should be age based. High school, anything goes. One day, I hope this don’t happen, some big 12 year old kid, will seriously injure a 10 year old kid. Oh wait, they are both in 5th grade. Kids the same age can also get hurt, but at least it’s on a level playing field. The parents want to hold their kids back for a real life issue, no problem. He plays sports, he plays his age. He will make new friends. Sorry mom and dad. What would you do if he played baseball or hockey. I’d be embarrassed playing my kids down in any sport.

Great, I propose 8/1. You propose 9/1 and others propose 1/1. Glad we're all in agreement. Sorry Charlie.

It’s within 1 year. What don’t you get? Have someone explain this to you. Whatever date is picked, there will be a 364 day window. That’s goes for every sport. I could care less what the cutoff date is. You play your age. My son is April. Make cutoff May 1. My son would be the youngest by less than a year. Guess what. Too bad. He isn’t going through youth sports playing with younger kids. If he goes through youth sports being an average, that’s life. Sorry holdback dad, you are wrong.

Okay, May 1 it is. All those February, March, and April LI parents in favor, say "aye." Good luck, it's not that easy regardless of what date you use.

The topic is holding back kids. The topic isn’t a cutoff date. It’s seems like you are unable to understand this. Again, not cutoff date. Holding kids back to play youth sports. Nothing more to say on this.

Cheating at youth is ridiculous. I know at least a half dozen kids that heldback in PAL and played on combo teams. Some kids quit or don't get to play because they think they stink. Tommy you don't stink Johnnie is 2 and a half years older than you thats why he is a 4th grade Myles Jones.

So true. Now that holdback dad will come on here again and start talking about cutoff dates again for the 5th time.
