Welcome to Old School LAX

This site is dedicated to all of those former and current lacrosse players - young and old - who have a thirst for learning all that they can about the past 150 years of lacrosse history. The pages that will follow will include a brief history of the game's Native American origin and a recap of its evolution during the 1900's. You will find some neat content on both men's as well as women's lacrosse.

Youth Sports "RED SHIRTING"

"RED SHIRTING" @ The Youth Level

by Michael R. on 05/25/14

Competitive Sports influences a lot of decisions - but in one way that I would never had imagined previously would be that of holding a child back in the early years of school - maybe pre-k or maybe after kindergarten in order to gain a competitive advantage athletically over other kids in their respective grade.  Yes, I am talking about kids a full year older than their classmates and teammates.   Historically, I believe kids would be held back because of possible maturity issues but never really heard about holding someone back so that they could be the best at their sport as they move along in their youth sports career.   Does this ring true for anyone ?   Ever play a team that was comprised of a bunch of kids who really should have been in the grade above ?
