Not actually true, but know what you're saying. Much better overall comp at NAL and NLF. My son is on age as a March 2008, but I much rather see him face the top 0226 teams vs. the ones that just fit the age requirement. Are you people going to wait until your boy is a senior in HS to let hm play varsity to avoid older players?

The older they get the age difference makes less of a difference.2025, 2026, 2027 still a big difference in the one year.
True, but if your son has any chance of playing against seniors as a freshman or even soph, he better get used to playing against 7th graders who are a few months older than him without daddy protecting him.

This is just so dense. One year age differences pre-HS are hugely determinative in terms of speed, strength, quickness, hand-eye, sports IQ, aggressiveness, etc. You seem to admit this. But then you say that a kid needs to play against older kids pre-HS in order to be able to play against older kids at the varsity level. This is just simply made up by you and there is zero evidence that this is true. Do you think any coach would say to a Freshman "you are my third best attackman, but because you didn't play against older kids when you were 12 I am putting you on JV"? And no, you don't have to play against older kids as a 12 year old to prepare for Varsity lacrosse. That is just silly. Its like saying I need to take my 13 yo to an empty parking lot to practice driving so he will be ready to drive when he is 16, or that I will need my 8 year to work on his calculus so that he will be ready for HS math.

And by the way, in an age based youth system, you can always have your kid play up if you, as a parent, thing he needs to play against older kids.

You are and will always be a hammerhead. Look at the champions from 4 years ago and where their kids just got recruited to play.

Actually it was #310082. Uh-oh got to puke again as I just glanced at it. Please stop discussing 6 months age difference and hold backs, etc. It is beyond a snore. Let the play speak for itself.

Where are all the top clubs playing for fall tourneys? NAL OR NLF only? Also where is the proof the WSYL is being held in MD?

Sweetlax might have something to say about that as they beat express easily... see "most" everyone at the world series in DC.

Hawks will gladly play Express anytime you like

OK, see you at the WSYL Chip!!

Tried to find you at NAL, but you were in the LIL guy bracket!!

Nice try. Take a look where the kids on the WSYL championship team from 2016 just committed to play in college.
