There are a number of teams that aren’t ranked yet since they haven’t played enough fall games yet (problem should have been rectified this weekend). You should see “more appropriate” rankings in the next update although ranking teams in 6th grade is beyond me.

So it happens everywhere. That is a fact.

True, not against the rules and every team is doing it! Just going to happen more and more now. Rules should change

Sorry 11/08 is a double holdback.

My son is six months younger (May 2009) and he is a 2027!

Yeah but how good is he at cross checking?

The oldest kid on Hawks is 11/09 birthday. I highly highly doubt that. Give me a break.

The Hawks team is probably, on average, 2 inches taller than the Madlax team. Maybe it’s all that Wawa, or maybe it’s age. Madlax has some holdbacks for sure, but not a bunch. They’re small and scrappy, with one big bruiser who is clearly a holdback. The Hawks goalie hits his head on the crossbar. NL has two six footers at FO and goalie. So what.

Small scrappy and completely ok with an abusive coach, shady use of much older and out of town players. Stay on the high horse Madlax parents, whatever keeps you going.

This explains why Long Island teams always dominated the WSYL as it was the only on age lacrosse tournament.

The Hawks goalie looks huge because he’s good. He’s actually very average.

“Big bruiser”. Haha, more like #47 ODB!

Yawn. More chatter on how good their holdbacks are from Hawks dads.

I guess it supposed to be better cause they aren’t big lol?

Anyway, I’m not positive but I think NL has the most holdbacks in the division.

Carry on.

What is the true issue with teams having holdbacks? Is it that the opposing teams are unable to compete? Are people concerned their child loses time in the spotlight?

If your child is good, playing against/with holdbacks seems to facilitate the younger players development at a faster rate.

I’ll keep it simple, when a kid is much older, and is dirty that it’s something bad for everyone involved.

That plus your parents continually making excuses for crappy behavior by your teenage player, the coach and the parents is enough.

Nobody cares about NL, Crabs, Hawks or FCA because they don’t cross check kids to the point where people throw up.

Hope that sums it up for you.

As a MD parent I didn’t know that it was different, so is 12/1 the cutoff for school all schools up there?

Definitely a disadvantage and btw, we detest MadLax too and my kid doesn’t even play for the Hawks.

Where is that chatter? Haven’t heard a thing, not even a Hawk parent. Only actual lacrosse news on here was about Elite 6s which had Hawk FCA combo teams.
