    Sports and Playing a Grade "behind"

    So where do the talented and driven athletes compete? Because once they get to high school- yes, scholarships matter, even if you think they shouldn't. Kids vary in size and development and talent. It behooves adults to make things as fair as possible. Age-based sports are mostly fair. Grade based sports are currently running into problems because of red-shirting (for whatever reason- academic, emotional, athletic). Sports, music, and theater all teach cooperation and hard work, but they also teach the important lesson that everyone does not have the same gifts. And that is okay.

    Sports and Playing a Grade "behind"

    Hard and fast age rules are frustrating and do give preference to those who birthdays fall just after the cut-off. But I much, much prefer those to grade based teams/sports. You can deal with 11-month variations and genetic variations of size much easier than what can be up at least a two-year difference. My kids have all been late developers- so I well know the frustration of the ages 10-14. But in the end, everyone gets to puberty and people are different sizes and talent will out. It is just a bumpy ride for a while.
