yes they are associated with the lax clubs, they are in other areas similar to the True programs. obviously they don't police the families behavior.

Why would they?? The Kelly name and what is has done for lacrosse in Baltimore is legendary.

yup, force marginal CH kids to play FCA and promoting the hold back culture...legendary!

I think they meant Calvert Hall going on the greatest run MIAA history with the greatest MIAA team in history (2019) with most of star players from FCA.

definitely, and most of that team will be legally old enough to buy & drink booze by the end of their freshman year in college.

When these kids graduate from college and hit the real world. No one will care how old they are. The only people that care are those that whine about holdbacks. Guess what in high school and college your kid will be playing against older kids. Get used to it and have little James or Timothy hit the wall

Such nonsense. Of course age does not matter to adults, but a year difference for boys ages 11 to 14, where kids are growing their fastest, is an advantage.

How about this - why don't YOU have Timothy hit the wall and then try again to compete with kids his own age?

you're right, when they get into the real world. but, why not let kids compete against kids and not young adults or in the case of Calvert Hall adults. Calvert Hall has some of the best collage age kids playing high school ball.

Be proud of your hold back as he crushes at the lower level. - Coming from a dad with a hold back.

Instead of posting on here... shouldn’t be running your sons Twitter and Instagram account.

Typical holdback response..While they want everyone to man up,,,they do the opposite and have their son play down. Years ago, We had a name for playing down.

I don’t think holdbacks are the issue at CH; bringing kids in from all over the country on the “Kelly Scholarship” may be. As far as club all goes; FCA is notorious for not developing talent and simply looking for the next best thing.

Does the Kelly Scholarship include Healthy Holly books?

I don't think any of the better clubs do a very good job of developing talent. Some of the less competitive clubs do a good job, but lose the better kids to the top clubs.

Calver Hall never stops recruiting, they will always look to improve a position. If you are a top player at a certain position and attend CH, you aren't guaranteed a position. Example, my nephew was a defender, one of the best in the Baltimore, played on the top club team and was a D1 commit going into his Junior season. CH coach recruited some out of state defenders who were thought to be better players. Said nephew was going to be benched because of the incoming players from 3 states over.

A good question to ask a varsity coach before attending a school would be, if they recruit from out of state, how many kids on a roster, will you be recruiting every year attempting to find better talent than the current upper classmen on the team. Some schools only recruit for incoming players, once you are on the team, you will only lose your position to another player already in the school or an incoming freshman. Some poor kid shouldn't get cut his senior year because the coach recruited out of state players for one season.
