And no this isn't the father of a kid who reclassified. Just dealing with facts. By way of example I know a boy who just reclassified and he is May 2004 and a repeat freshman. He is an excellent player on grade but now as an reclass will be recruited probably by every school in the country. This boy will turn 19 the same month he graduates (private school). My son who didn't reclassify is a August birthday and will graduate at 18 but IS ONLY 4 MONTHS OLDER! So seriously if the best kids cant play with kids 8-14 months within their own age then they cant play at D1 anyway. Just my 2 cents.



So you Son who is an August Birthday will graduate at 18? In NY he is a hold back, my son is also an August Birthday. He will be 17 at graduation. Also you said it perfect, " if the best kids cant play with kids 8-14 months with in their age they cant play D-1" So why repeat a grade. If your good your good you do not need to repeat and re-classify. But If you know your average well then do what you have to do. it all evens out in college. I hope your son and his friend enjoy the extra year of HS.

Crazy, obsessive, compulsive dwelling on hold backs pop up every where on this forum. Can’t we get beyond this and focus on the joy of the game.

Because their sons can’t compete, therefore his competition is a hold back. Not the obvious, that he is a sub par athlete. Sad commentary on lacrosse parents as a whole.

while not as egregious as cheating at the 9/10/11 year old level, it is finding a weakness in the rules to exploit and allow for 19yr old kids to play against 14-18 year olds. I for one, will have my kids play down to JV to really rack up

Dude the truth is people cheat. It is not pleasant to have kid miss out on starting ,beat out by a kid that shouldn't be there by a kid that you know repeated a grade for a fact because he was originally in another grade with your older son. This has happened twice to my kid with holdbacks who couldn't compete on grade at youth. One transferred to private to repeat and another transferred schools in the district to repeat. That kid steals all the reps in youth your kid sits because the other gets 13th grade. If you have limited means hard to overcome. There are only 6 attack, 6 defense , 12 middies and 2 goalies that will get to play in JV and V over 3/4 grades.

Am i the only person that thinks there is a mental issue with holding a kid back to play youth sports?

An on age August birthday in NY would start their senior year having just turned 17, and not turn 18 till the summer after their graduation from high school. So an August birthday who is 18 when they graduate is a holdback.

A few things. I was the one who posted about my son and turning eighteen. To begin with, the idea that this conversation is still going on after my post in January (approx 4 months ago) is humorous. I check this site every few months or so and when I saw this I laughed bc boy do people have issues. Secondly, I made a typo. My son does turn 18 in August as was posted so he will be 17 and not 18 at graduation and will turn 18 right before college. I will reiterate that if he plays against 19 year olds WHO CARES. He will be better than some and worse than others. As for the above comment about boys who turn 18 in August going into their senior year they are clearly holdbacks. This is 100% wrong. I know of 3 families whose children celebrate their birthday in August and will be 18 entering their senior year and none of them are holdbacks. Been friends with the families in the community since kindergarten when the only sport the boys played were t-ball. In fact none of them play lacrosse. One is soccer, one is tennis and one doesn't do any sports at all. None of these boys will be playing sports in college and NONE OF THEM ARE HOLDBACKS. so please, who ever is bitter and had their girl taken by a holdback keep this conversation going not only on this thread but every other thread (please note the sarcasm and have a drink). Look forward to reading the responses in 4 months when hopefully life has resumed and is back to normal and I come back to this site.

You keep going on and on about holdbacks when all I wanted to say was congratulations to the Class of 2020 at Chaminade. There are some VERY good players on the team and it is really too bad they lost their season. There was a lot of great stuff on the schedule for the boys and it would have been a lot of fun. Best of luck to everyone next year in college....I hope you crush it.

The majority will never be heard from again. This was their last chance for some meaningful playing time. Sad after spending all that money, but unfortunately those are the facts.
