I actually have a Freshman as well and yes he's wrestled 18 year olds, but this is JUNIOR HIGH.
But you decided to start your kid early, how is it wrong of those who chose not to do that?

You are correct, but I made the assumption they peed some of it out rather than down the 32 oz and jump on the scale .

I started my kid at an appropriate age. Most kids start kindergarten when they are 5. It's HOLDING kids back that I have a problem with. Now yes academically, if they are struggling or are immature in behavior at 5 or 6 years old then I believe holding their child back would be appropriate. But, to hold a kid back at 6 th grade. To do 6th grade over so that they can have a competitive advantage in athletics, not a fan. As far as my kid losing, my kid was ecstatic at making the podium for the first time ever. That's what I will cherish, is the biggest smile you'll ever see when he was on that podium and the tears of joy when he made it into the placement round after that match. Sorry, if I offended Hammer, MPhilips and some other parents because of "my opinion". If you all feel that you need to hold your child back to gain that competitive advantage so that HIGH SCHOOLS can recruit you. Or if you think that your child will be that 1% Division 1 wrestling scholarship go for it, it is definitely your prerogative!

And here I thought it was because they pretty much never call stalling on the top guy, forcing the bottom guy to actually get out

That is spot on. You and I who share this opinion will never change the die-hard who believe it. I can't help but think the kids doubt themselves in the back of their mind. Would I have won this if I were not held back? Am I really that good? Kids are smarter than we think.

My son and I were at a restaurant after a live session and we were talking to a kid that we had wrestled with for years and asked him what grade he was in because we thought he was in high school. The kid told us his Jr. High grade and then told us that they held him back. We didn't say anything and left after eating. On the way home, I joking said to my son, "do you want me to hold you back?" Without hesitation he say, "No. Dad, that just seems like cheating." I just laughed and knew the kid would be alright no matter what. He gets what a lot of parents don't. It's not about the wins and the losses. It's more about the journey.

You mistakenly assume I condone holding a kid back for sports I do not. But if your son doesn't turn 14 in 8th grade, he is younger than the vast majority of 8th graders.I will say that for boys, it is always wise to err on the side of caution, and wait to start them in school. Socially and academically they will be much better off in the long run.

I'm reading the post and I'm triyingto figure out from the topic of how does being any older change the weigh out process. Is it harder for a kid fifteenth or thirteen to weigh out.

But if you're 200 lbs and had to lose 10% that's 20 lbs. There are plenty kids losing even more of that. I do have an issue that my 8th grader is only 13 and wrestled someone that is almost 2 years older. As a matter of fact that 8th grader is old enough to get his permit, which is older than my 9th grader who just turned 15 in January!
Are you going to continue to whine about age when your son is a freshman in high school and has to wrestle a junior or senior? It happens all the time. Get used to it.

Yes. Older kids find it harder to make weight. Start them young and you can bully them more.
