No. Same kids. Their problem isn’t losing kids. Their problem is the teams that are a high percentage of on age kids have now caught up to the size of their all-holdback team. 8th grade is the great equalizer when most kids hit their growth spurt. Madlax’s holdbacks hit their growth spurt last year and even the year before that. Their growth spurts are done, while the on age teams had theirs this year. My kid grew 5 inches and put on 40 lbs of muscle this year. So did many of his team mates. All on age kids. There are no more “big kids” that dominate. They are all big kids now. Madlax’s sole advantage over all other teams, is no more. The playing field just got leveled. The hold back has officially lost their edge. From here on out, there will be far more parody among top teams, since there is no more dominant “big kids” anymore. If you doubt that, look at Madlax’s wins and losses. They lost to a variety of teams and some of them aren’t what I would classify as top tier. Nothing close.

Are most of the 24 teams opting out of the fall HoCo league? Who's in? Who's out?

If what I heard is true, the speedy attack, gigantic mid, and two really good poles left for Next Level, and several other kids left for other teams. Will really shake things up next year.

That's what I heard, and from a very reliable source. Most of the Madlax 2024 top players left for Next Level, who had a decent summer, but could now be kings of the castle if this is true.

But don't count Madlax out , they will ship in players you have never seen before, so I expect them to be some what competitive (with the Crabs) but no longer in teh big boy group.
