I commend the parents that notice their kids have "LEARNING DISABILITIES" and step up to give their kids the help they need...Maybe they got the extra help, and did their homework, maybe their school district couldn't connect or didn't care. But to say give up on the sport, is wrong. Physical ability is just has important has mental.
Your talking about lacrosse in his forum,not football or basketball. If your kid is 6ft 9 or taller then physical may be just as important. If your kid can't pass grade 8 then cut out the lacrosse until schooling gets on track. Your not going to make a financial career out of lacrosse. Unless you want to keep paying your kids rent for the rest of his life.
