I really liked the guy that stated separate them by size and weight.
Lets see I am a College Coach - do I go to field #3 and watch the 5'5" 140lb and under game or do I go to field #1 and watch the 6 footers?

Lol I think it's fair to say that is just not a option- but it does speak to why proper age verification is paramount in all sports

In that sentence you don't capitalize "College Coach."

What position are you in to verify the birth dates of the Edge program players?

I think some posters are missing the point of the Edge Lacrosse program issue. The program, not the parents, is structured so that their rosters are one year older than the teams they play against.

Obfuscate the point all you want. The fact remains their business model centers around organized and purposeful cheating which endangers players without parents having the ability to decide if they want their child playing against older kids.

School cutoff dates, weight, height....its all a smoke screen that I must believe is being sent up by an Edge employee or director.

My sons coach has already confirmed they will not register for tournaments that allows the Edge teams to participate. He's an old school Syracuse alumni who is hyper competitive but thinks the Edge program policy is dangerous and completely unfair. I think he has some pull with a bunch of larger tournaments through his college relationships. Hopefully it has the desired effect.

My son is a 2002- 7th grader and will be 13 in the early part of this new year - So the 2000 kids will be 15 starting in about 1 month. Aren't most kids turning 14 in 8th grade - the 2019 year???? Our 9th graders turn 15, not our 8th graders. Are we talking about 2019 Edge being 2000 yr born?

It seems to me that the slow LI people are trying to bring some sanity to a dangerous and unethical situation. While the Wendy whiners in the greater Balto area that have clearly flouted the rules for years are upset by any push to right the ship.
Canadians are following the lead of the cheaters south of the 49th, but they have always followed big brother. You can't blame them.

Let's all agree, September 1 cutoff date. If kids aren't 5yrs old by 9/1, they don't have to enter kindergarten.

Let's get the US Lax, CLA, OLA, etc, to show some leadership and mandate birth certificate verified photo ID's.

All of the side-bantering, including mine, doesn't mean a thing until we have organized, mandated standardization of age verification.

I have friends who are affiliated with the Edge program, and I Iove the lacrosse they produce, but the language on their website is disturbing. It illustrates the need for standardized age verification.

That is great for your old kid, but seems unfair to have barely 14 year olds playing against 16 year olds because they "decided" to repeat 8th grade twice or just "reclassified" (maybe do a PG year 4 years from now).

Cheating is cheating.

Cheat - act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage , especially in a game or examination

That is from the dictionary. Does that hit a little close to home?

Some American clubs started this practice. How can we blame Edge for following. Btw the CLA does not sanction and have nothing to do with Canadian club teams. They sanction box lacrosse and national and international field teams and tournaments.

You don't think the best lacrosse players in Ontario have started puberty by 14? They are the too players for their area...of course they are going to be big.
