Thank you Captain Obvious. You must be a first year MP dad whose kid didn’t crack the varsity lineup but felt like that check you wrote for $38k earns you the rite to flex on this page. Either that or you’re a hammerhead MP freshman taking a break between popping zits to post a typical lax bro meathead response.

State Champs with no geographical boundaries or age requirements....you sound about as big a DB as the St Joe Prep parents when they win in football...

As the parent of boys in public school I agree on the geography, but there are no age requirements in public schools either. My one son is a june bday and has plenty of kids his grade that are a year+ older than him.

Maybe there is no requirements, but there will be much fewer holdbacks in publics! Tax dollars will not allow kids to be held back on a parents whim. It Has to be a very valid reason and sports do not count!

holdback scenario is more of an elitist “play”. Ones who can afford privates and pay to holdback and it is the norm. Pay fir a clear advantage! Needs to stop.

Parents put up one year's catholic school tuition to have their son do 8th grade again and then re-enter the public HS. Elitist? Not really. It worked for a starting middie for the national champions.

PIAA rules do have age requirements though they don't really kick in until you have a double holdback or more commonly the holdback and reclassed kid:
To be eligible to participate in grades 10 through 12, you must not have reached your 19th birthday by June 30 immediately preceding the school year. Where you will participate only in grades 7 and 8, you may not have reached 15th birthday by June 30 immediately preceding the school year; where you will participate only in grades 7 through 9, you may not have reached your 16th birthday by June 30 immediately preceding the school year.

Catholic schools are part of PIAA. If you repeat 8th grade, you aren't going to be eligible your senior year:

Period of Time After Eighth Grade, Participation, and Grade Repetition
Your athletic eligibility extends only until you have reached the end of your fourth consecutive year (8 th consecutive semester or the equivalent) beyond the eighth grade. Therefore, if you repeat a grade after eighth, you will be ineligible as a senior. Additionally, you may participate in (1) a maximum of six seasons in each sport during grades seven through twelve, (2) a maximum of four seasons in each sport during grades nine through twelve, and (3) a maximum of three seasons in each sport during grades seven through nine.

There are absolutely age restrictions in public and Inter-Ac schools. I believe both are you cannot turn 19 prior to July 1 entering your senior year. The difference being Inter-ac don’t enforce the age restriction or just call it a “post grad” year. Also, many catholic high schools are in the PIAA but almost none of their grade schools are so many kids are repeating in catholic grade schools or cyber schools.

Another year of UA Philly Tryout Shenanigans. The Command Division had a dad evaluator. Yep a dad with a clipboard evaluating his own son and other players at his sons position. And take a wild guess whose son made the team…ahead of several better players at the same position. Can’t make this stuff up.
