This forum is for 2025 so when your son whose a sophomore tries out for his high school lacrosse team this year do you tell your Varsity coach that your son competing against seniors means your Varsity coach is “scoffing at this clear & present danger”?

Even high school has freshman, JV , and Varsity teams that dictate skill level. I think everyone agreed that it should be aged based through 8th grade....with the option for your son to play up if he was talented enough. Every study has shown the advantage an older child has between 5th and 8th grade as boys mature differently. Doesn't it make more sense for the best players to "play up" instead of "playing down"?

Again, this is a 2025 forum. You oughta bounce over the 2032 forum.

YES! Well said. Have your son play up and not down. Rules NEED to be changed.

Wait a minute, you guys changed the argument. Of course there’s an advantage if a kid is a year older. But that guy was talking about threatening legal action because of a “clear and present danger” from a physical standpoint which is a joke. This is a 25 forum. We’re talking high school with an age range of maybe 4 years. At this point it’s time to grow up and put your big boy pants on

Yes, but high school makes it clear that you will be playing with kids between the ages of 14-18 and typically offers alternatives skill levels of play (freshman, JV, Varsity). Club lacrosse rules are open ended and there can be a huge disparity in age with the assumption that you are playing with boys your same age. The "attractive nuisance" doctrine could be broadly applied in this case. I'm not sure the judge will appreciate your "put on your big boy pants" argument. Kids who are born on the same day and year can have up to 2 years difference in physical maturity when it comes to puberty. Now add to the fact you are putting your kid in that group and he is 18 months older than that child. Your kid can physically be 3.5 years physically more mature than the other kids. The only people fighting the rule change are the "holdback" parents.

So your "clear & present danger" lawsuit only applies in club lacrosse for high school age players but not their actual High School lacrosse team. Guess it also doesn't apply to the 18 yo college freshman playing against 24 yo seniors (redshirt + COVID year). Gotcha.

Not sure why you are unable grasp the safety issue, but the concern is players in the 11-15 year old range and the physical disparity that can exist at those ages. I am sorry your kid cannot succeed with players at his own age, but this is about the safety of the players and quite frankly.....a level playing field.

Why are you against your son playing with kids his own age?

It's time to teach these boys that life isn't always fair. Are they going to complain when they are in the working world and someone has more experience? My son is better than other kids in his grade, but he gets made fun of because he will be turning 16 midway through his 8th grade year. He is making sacrifices to be the best in his grade, now you want to change that???!!!!! That's not fair.

Sorry to ruin your narrative but my son is age appropriate and not a reclass who competed against players 2-3 years older last spring as a freshman.

Congratulations on your son doing what every other high school player is doing, but you clearly have poor reading comprehension. We were referring to holdbacks in club lacrosse between the ages of 11-15.

You may not like that I held my son back 1.5 years, but it is going to pay off because of the covid holdback year that is creating a glut for college lacrosse scholarships.

It’s not the 7K scholarship. It’s the college doors that get opened because of lacrosse. Schools kids would not get into otherwise. You think half those kids going to the Harvard, Duke, Yale, Princeton type schools would get in without lacrosse?
