Can someone answer this? Why are you required to have a US Lacrosse membership? I don’t want three of their useless magazines.

Dont you like the totally woke useless USL Mag. Used to be about the sport, now it must have its social issues of the day enlightening us.

Yes. The February kids have an advantage over the October kids.

But an 8 mos difference is better than the 18+ mos difference that can occur in lacrosse.

Wait until he is 9th grade. 18 months is nothing.

Are you trying to rationalize or build on the age discrepancy further? I can’t tell.

It very well may happen in hs.

It 100% SHOULDN'T be happening in youth lacrosse.

holdbacks negatively impact competition, growth, safety, and access. It's bad for the growth of the game. Period.

Good for the individual but bad for the group. Been covered so many times before on the forums. Would be great if there was a standard date set by a governing body and all abided by it. 8/1 or 9/1 of every year would be my choice to line up with the school year but whatever date would be fine. High school and college multi year competition is a red herring. What matters is development time before high school and there is an obvious advantage to be older during that time period.

Life isnt fair just get over it. I love watching my on age son run by these kids. It's funny because if you didnt know the kid was a holdback you'd be complaining that hes just better than your kid

Or group kids by 2 birth years. Like they used to do back in rec.
One year you're the old kid, the next year you're the young kid.
Kids have to come and go through the age group. Teams cant stick together. New coaches/teams each year. Cut down on the bs.

That, sir, is the most common sense idea put forward so far. And youth lax is no place for common sense.

Stop trying to change the game. US lacrosse has already ruined it enough. No more hitting, requiring certain pads to be worn and requiring everyone to pay $ for a useless membership.

The game was a great sport before.

Have you seen the garbage they are doing to change the game to 6 vs 6. stunads … limited the numbers does not grow the sport . Thank goodness Stenerson is gone!

It also helps kids develop/grow. Learn to be a team leader or follower, depending on the year. HS coaches win.

Seriously, just talk about the sport, why do we have to add the wine stuff into it? That’s always the cover and usually the content.
