Youth Sports Myths DEBUNKED!

As the season approaches, the Winchester Youth Lacrosse wanted to DEBUNK four myths:

 

Myth 1:  If your son has not started playing lacrosse by 1st or 2nd grade, then it is too late for him to play.

Facts:  Putting aside how silly that statement is on its face, the reality is that kids start playing at all ages.  Kids play for a variety of reasons.  They enjoy the physical activity required of lacrosse.  Unlike some other sports, lacrosse is a sport where kids have to run and can be physical.  They like being with their friends.  They like being part of a team.  No young child (or parent) should think they cannot play because some other kids know how to throw and catch better than them.  This is not hockey where you need to learn how to skate.  Every boy knows how to run.  Kids can learn to throw and catch.  It’s not rocket science. Each of our grades have several top playesrs that started playing lacrosse “late” (in the eyes of people who believe in this myth).

 

Myth 2:  If you do not play club lacrosse, then it is not worth playing town lacrosse.

Facts:  Put simply, why?  Is a kid really worried about making the high school team or playing in college when he is a 10-year old?  Of course not.  Kids play because they enjoy the game and want to be with their friends.  Play club, don’t play club.  It’s all the same as far as WYL is concerned.  We have a great program for kids of all ages and abilities.  Learn the game, get exercise, play with actual friends and neighbors.  You can play Winchester town lax without playing club and still have a great time and develop to your full ability.  Anyone who tells you differently is trying to sell you something.

 

Myth 3:  If my son only makes the “B” team in 5th grade, he will never make the “A” team while he plays youth lacrosse. 

Facts:  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  Kids develop skills at all different ages, as well as mature physically at different ages.  We generally have plenty of players per season move up and down from “A” to “B” teams based on availability and personal improvement.  It’s pretty fluid, based on development, and none of our “A” teams are locked in team rosters from G5 through G8.

 

Myth 4:  Your son needs to specialize in a single sport.

Facts:  Study after study shows that specialization at a young age leads to overuse injuries and impedes development. You’ve seen the stories and yet people continue to gravitate toward an approach that pigeonholes their son.  Heaven forbid they stop enjoying that one sport in middle school!  Let kids be kids.  Play multiple sports.  Take a season off.  Develop different skills and have fun.
