The hawks were not there because it was in august. Coaches wanted a break to spend time with family. The tournament schedule for hawks comes out in Sept and did not include the championship in mass. If it had, they would have gone.
Seems to me that the older hawks got called out and the only thing you have to say about it is oh no my son got called out for being older. Wait, he had his schedule way in advance. No way could my older sons team be denied because of age discrepancies. FYI- the date of the NLF championship wasn’t out last September. That’s why it wasn’t included in your older sons itinerary. Poor guy. Don’t be depressed. The crabs denied the Hawks. Deal with it.
