Speaking of which; will he still be the coach during the clubs HS years? I don’t know of many clubs having “dad” coaches in HS. Sounds like a lot of the parents aren’t real happy with the kick of development. I can see DCE and Crabs seeing some Hawks boys at tryouts.

He is a multiple time all American like him or detest him. There are a lot of very good dad coaches in this area that were also very good college players. And one thing I've learned about Dad coaches is they show up. They have a vested interest in the players getting better including their own. Yes there is favoritism at the playing time that you can see. And yes they do give their kid the ball an offense a bit more. But also sometimes that is because a coach's kid may just know the game or the game plan a little bit better because of all of those extra conversations in the car.

One thing that all of the holdback parents seem to be forgetting, is that success in eighth through 11th grade against younger kids does not translate to success in college against older kids. Yes they may draw more attention now and get more confidence, but the kids who are actually struggling to play against the older kids who you keep mocking and ridiculing or not understanding that this is how the game is played, are the ones who will actually excel in college because they have always been playing against your kid who was bigger older stronger faster and maybe a level up. If your kid is peeking in 8th grade or even in high school then you're probably failing as a parent. If they are having productive struggle now so that they can thrive later then they might not have a middle school trophy to displace when they're putting their achievements on the shelf.

Well I’m going to disagree. Listen to the Hawks parents on the sidelines this weekend; they surely don’t love the coach. And I can tell you at least 3 are leaving after the summer. FACTS

Keep telling yourself that. I’ve seen this too many times; if you kid is struggling in 8th grade to keep up before the HS years hit there is a more than likely chance he will continue to struggle at the next level. Sure there are exceptions but that is rare and you’re about to find out.

Yes, but VLC came within 1 of Hawks, and they beat DCE. MadLax also didn't make the playoffs but came within 1 of Hawks. After Crabs and DCE, there is not much difference between the other teams.

And Hawks beat DCE last week- what’s your point? This could have been anyones year. Crabs did what the Crabs do and they took it. DCE goalie played lights out this weekend against the Hawks.

Is DCE goalie best in country?

If he's not the best he is top 2. Saw him at NLF this winter and was MVP and it wasn't close. At least 15 saves in the Championship game. Kid is a special talent.

Keep telling yourself that your son who couldn't compete against kids his own age and had to compete against the kids a year younger is all of a sudden going to miraculously thrive when he has to compete against children who are older than him. But at least you get a cool window sticker for your minivan

That is because remaining teams are more on age kids. Say what you want holdbacks is a legal form of cheating. Those who engage in it for sports purposes only are not comfortable with their son playing against kids of the same age. That is what it comes down to. It does not matter if others are doing it. The more people who do it does not make it right. Just tell yourself-Since I am doing this for sports purposes only, I am not comfortable with the outcome of my kid playing against kids his OWN age. At that point we will all know where we stand.

So having kids play back a year is the standard?? You are just going to accept that garbage. You are a pushover and a puppet for people like King Crab. holdbacks need to be called out when done for lax purposes only.

Enjoy that fake trophy, because you know it is when you really digest the facts. King Crab never coaches an 8th grade team unless all the cards are in his favor. It makes up for his coaching short comings.

The question is could the Crabs on age kids win the championship? Simple question 1.) Yes or 2.) No

If your kid is an on age 2026 player, congratulations to him and to you for having him play up against older kids in the 2026 division. It’s great that he’s able to play up and compete. He will be better off in high school. So can we stop the never ending holdback discussions and just tell yourself and your son that he’s playing up one age level and be proud of it? Yes, my son is on age 14 year old 8th grader. No, not a crabs parent.
