Exxxxactly. Typically when a team pops up and becomes good it's the sad daddy's of the 25 kids who couldn't make it in 25 and reclass and then all of a sudden they are good. See Baltimore Crabs for example. Couldn't win a game and then they held 8 kids back. All for the lax glory of dad who never had it and wants it so bad he'll get it by making his son repeat a year of school!

Same old nonsense from the LI crowd. Last I checked, most club tourneys are grade based, not age based. Only one that I know of...WSYL. So if I'm not mistaken, nobody is doing anything wrong. Either you beat'em or you join'em. It just that the coaching and stick skill advantage the LI kids have by being born with a stick in their hands, disappears as they get older and athleticism takes over. And believe it or not, it happens in LI also. Wasn't Spallina born in 2003? He's graduating in 2022. By my calculation, that would a kid born in 2007 graduating in 2026. So give me a break with the whining. It is what it is. MD, VA, CT, MA kids are getting more of their multi sport athletes involved in lacrosse and you are seeing the results. LI doesn't have a monopoly on the sport like the old days. I'll take a good big player over a good little player anyday.

LI kids aren’t smaller, they’re younger. There is a difference.

Spallina wasn't younger. And I'm guessing many more are not. It's just a narrative that LI folks like to perpetuate. #dellusional

At least people from LI know how to spell delusional

Haha, travel lacrosse bro sounds like he should stick to soccer. He probably just learned the word "hence" and is now embarrassed he drives his kid an hour to play on a B team because he thought that was travel lax.

Not that hard for a 24 to become a 26 in PA, and end up 2 years older than teammates. Or more likely, on opposing teams b/c it’s rampant in some clubs less than others. Reclassing is getting out of hand. All these “new” 8th graders show up at tryouts.

It’s not uncommon for kids (mostly boys) w/ summer, even spring, birthdays, to be given “the gift of time.” People say any kid would benefit because “kindergarten is the new first grade.” Most parents don’t do it b/c of sports. But a potential advantage in sports is definitely a factor for a lot of parents who decide their 5 year old should wait until they’re 6 to start public (or private) school. It’s allowed, without question. Of course, it involves paying for another year of preschool/daycare. Some private schools already have a later cutoff to start K - like 12/1 instead of 8/31.

Fast forward to middle school & that “redshirted” kindergartner is good at lacrosse & looks like they have potential to get even better. (Could also be football, but never soccer b/c it’s strictly age based). They switch from public to private during middle school for an extra year before high school. I’ve seen a few boys who actually are already among the best on the field reclass. Sometimes it’s private to private, and I’ve seen it from private, to a repeat in public or a low quality parochial school, and back to another private. There will be an increase because the pandemic & shoddy virtual/hybrid school sounds as legitimate as it gets for reasons to repeat a grade. It’s a PA law for this year that a parent can choose to hold a kid back this year, regardless of what their public school recommends!

And that’s how you get a double reclass, aka a 15 year old guarding your 13 year old.

Well said. Guess we won't be seeing many wide open triple behind the back passes on their Instagram from this tournament. Kids on the east coast actually play defense and our goalies don't flail and duck shots. Goes to show what a joke the US Club Championship is!

Hawks best player (big lefty middie) left the team after last weekend. They are definitely not the same team without him. Express v. Hawks final as expected.
