you are absolutely correct. do not hold back simply to play ball. if the school or KHAA allows this they are to blame.

Just goes w/o saying that sports mean more to schools than academics. There's no wonder that our students rank 23rd in the world in academics!! Only 0.05% of high school athletes make it in to the
pros, & only 0.01% make it big!!!

There are many other reasons that parents may need to hold a kid back. Maturity levels, maybe they would rather there child not graduate at 17, and there are others. Forgetting sports, if you weighed all of the benifits of staying back the benifits outweigh there negitives.
Kids that are older are generally more prepared to handle being out of high school and starting a new chapter, they are more mature can get better jobs (should they choose). If they are looking at college they have a better chance of getting an acidemic scholarship ( high school grades are usually better). Should that child want to play sports in college the extra year growth physically can help there as well. They may only go to a small school but that's beside the point if they are good enough to get any type of help that's just less out of pocket the parents have to pay for.

Why is it any of your business if parents want to hold there kids back, often times the kids idea.

Many parents are doing there best to put there kids through college with little or know help from the government many fiamilies may have more than one in collage at a time. Any scholarship money helps a lot.

I would say that the kids that are holdbacks more than outpace the regular students in academics and going to college. I'm not saying they are getting athletic scholarships but I'd say 98% of the holdbacks that I know of went on to college. So what's the big deal anyways? They can still stay back before grade 6. Khsaa has no jurisdiction over any grade before that. You need to check your info first.

they would still go college & do fine , quit trying to justify sorry excuse for letting kids play extra high of ball, that's all it is . Lot harder to figure out before six grade though on how good the kid will be. Haha. Weak weak you must have done it. Shame on you

I wasn't trying to imply sports had nothing to do with it but the advantages extend far beyond sports. I know kids that have stayed back that did get a scholar ship to play sports that wouldn't have if they hadn't had the extra year to grow physically and mentally.
What business is it of yours anyway. Staying back a year never hurt anyone especially those it has no effect on anyway.
We can disagree on benefit of staying back, that's fine. It's a personal choice for each family, it doesn't hurt or involve you either way.

Was it 14 or 15 6th graders that stayed back for sports this year? Let that sink in....we aren't talking 1 or 2 kids. You can't tell me that the incoming 6th graders aren't affected.

Everyone has the chance to stay back. If you choose to stay back. Great If you don't Great but don't blame kids and parents for wanting what's best for them. There is nothing ILLEAGAL or immoral about it

No just stupid , if they can't compete with kids their own age it just catches back up when they get in high school, just amounts to middle school stars for a year & then back to the mediocre they were before

We'll you know what they say about opinions everybody has one. My son stayed back didn't play ball in college but the fact he was older and more mature made a huge difference when he went to college. I'd do it all over again any day. I wish my other child had stayed back.
I don't understand people who want to cry and complain about everyone else and try to tell people is best for them. Take care of your own house I'll take care of mine.

trying to keep justifying your mistakes don't make them right . Your son stayed back ans still didn't play college ball, but when he stayed back you were all starry eyed that this boy is going play college ball. Sorry you were taken by the false promises of selfish coaches .

You are totally WRONG. If you would read and try to understand. FORGET SPORTS. staying back was absolutely the best thing for my son. His grades improved his maturity levels were greater than they would have been, he had more confidence in himself, and the extra year help get some acidemic scholar ship that I don't think he would have gotten had he not stayed back. So don't feel bad for me. Best thing we could have done for my child and his future.
Back to the sports. I never had dreams of him playing at a major college and certainly not making it to the NBA. However because he was a year older and a year stronger he did have the option to play at a small college. He CHOOSE not to and I'm fine with that.
Staying back a year was his idea not mine. but I'm glad he did it was by far a GREAT decision.

I would recommend it to anyone especially for boys. The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. I would do it again in a heart beat.

thats the reason that had to pass a law is weak parents would not give in to starry eyed kids who get burnt out in high school & have no desire to play college ball. You been had & don't even realize it . The system abused your child & you can't even see that!

I can't believe the level of ignorance READ MY ENTIRE POST BEFORE YOU BASH!
It helped my son in many many many ways other than sports. I also know other kids that went on to get scholar ships because they staid back and matured physically got a college degree can't beat that.
I'm done with this post I keep repeating myself over and over. To many people must know how to read or something
