I don't know why anyONE would want their kid to have stay in middle school or high school any longer than they had to. I think it would be miserable on the kid.

Its so that they are bigger and stronger for sports. That is the only reason they are getting held back.

Start your kid in the first grade as they are turning seven will solve the problem of holdbacks. Certainly helps the child in all aspects. Most elementary teachers will tell you the same thing. I started first grade at five and was a sixteen year old senior, not good. I am not just talking about sports, but as mentioned, all aspects.

Don't just talk about TC, look at C-ville also it's just as bad or worse there. I agree with what "Artie" said about just starting your kids a year later. I would love to here the conversation when a parent is explaining to there (in a lot of cases an "A" student) child, they are going to hold them back in the 5-6-7 or 8th grade to help the "mature" more to be better ready for high school, while the whole time thinking they are raising the next Micheal Jordan, Nolan Ryan, or Bret Farve. The worst problem is the parents probably believe and have there kids believing that this will allow them to be a Division 1 college play and then a Pro!!!
College education fund = Hold the kid back a year, Great Plan!!!

It has to do with them getting an EXTRA year of experience in middle school BEFORE high school eligibility rules kick in. Most people, if they think their kid has a real shot at playing college ball, consider holding the kid back a year because of that. It has NOTHING to do with their age as much as it does with just an extra year of experience.

And theoretically, you could save more in the college fund if you hold back a year too. I'm just sayin....

If kids are doing this strictly for sports reasons in this area, then they're wasting their time. It takes a team to help a good basketball player become a college hopeful, which happens on rare occasions in this area.

Ball-hogging is not what coaches look at anymore. The assists leaders are more important than the shooters themselves. If a player wants to go far, he/she should network with other like-minded and interested players, and attend summer basketball camps as well as practicing and playing as much pick-up games as possible.

One great player can't go far when he/she plays on a team of "so-so" players.

If the one player is a "great player" yes, he or she can go far on a team of so-so players. College coaches, just like NBA scouts, look at potential of an individual player. A college coach who knows what he or she is looking for can tell you within the first couple of quarters if a player has potential to make it at the college level, whether it's small or big college. Most usually if a player is good enough he or she will attract attention of college coaches regardless of who the other players are.

You are right about networking, playing summer ball and so forth though as a lot of college coaches will do scouting over the summer at various camps and leagues.

And I can't recall a player that has been held back in the Cville system for sports in quite some time...

Holdbacks

United States

Kearney (both)
Bottoms (both)
Levi Smith held bak there.
Only a few I can think of right now.
Both schools hold back kids at parents request. They both have about the same number of holdbacks. All of those mentioned were athletes.

Isn't that another year of tax money spent on that child?

Start your child in first grade at age seven, takes care of the problem. Child is better off and not just in sports.

I am not going to put young kids names on here but the list is probably longer than most of us would expect. My point from my original post was not to just talk about TC, its just as bad at C-ville. If you need to know who is held back at C-ville just ask around some of the parents, especially some 4th & 5th grade kids parents, just be careful you might embarrass someone!

Why does it concern you about the decisions another family makes? I think this is irrelevant you everyone to everyone here.

As someone else said, our tax dollars are being spent on this. If a kid needs to be held back for learning is one thing, but other than that, the parents ought to foot the bill for a year.

So calling those kids out on topix is going to help something? If you are concerned about it take it up with the school board.

Maybe if girl players from Taylor County got held back they would have a decent team. Can't win when your game plan is to let one person score.
