Let's start with age verification on BOTC. These posts are getting ridiculous!

I just signed son up for a tournament where the registration system cross-referenced the birthdate with the U.S. Lacrosse database based on the number. (I had typed in 2/21 instead of 2/12 and it kicked me out until I fixed.) Pretty nifty. I doubt many parents used a fake birthdate when they signed up for U.S. Lacrosse in the first place and, regardless, let U.S. Lacrosse require proof of birth once and let tournaments rely on that.

I like the idea but seems meaningless without names, no?

One of the players on my sons 2019 team had his arm broken today by a giant player from Edge Lacrosse out of Canada in the 3D fl$ tournament in MD.

Parents on sideline were saying the kids are in 9th grade and some in 10th.

Talk about unsafe and unfair. My son is a decent size 13 year old and should NOT be playing against these beasts one and two years older and that's assuming none were held back!!!

Too much money involved for the travel programs controlling the game. Never going to change. Every year its the same thing on both the boys and girls side. It absolute bullcrap. The largest youth sport in the country soccer does it with zero problems.

Lacrosse is living in the stone ages when it comes to this. How in this day and age do not they not play in age brackets vs "school years" is beyond me. In addition @ any given tourney outside of a once in a while USLacrosse registration (still dont require birth certificates to register) requirement, you can have upper class kids fill roster spots for teams. To sum it up, you can have a kid get "left back" 2x's and be 2 years older than the kids in his age group and be legitamely eligible.

Unfortunately it will take one good lawsuit or a fatality on the field for US lacrosse to make any changes. Let's hope it's the latter.

The 800 pound gorillas in the travel world don't want it so it wont happen. US lacrosse is just happy the travel teams keep forcing the kids to register for US lax

YES! Play up at your own peril but no playing down. But certain clubs love it! You will never see this at a 3D tourney.

In 8th grade it is hard enough when some of the boys have hit puberty and are 180 lb men and some boys are skinny 80 lb boys.
