Reply to "When a player's age does not match the average for their grad year"

My son is in the same boat.  Late Sept bday.  My wife and I moved him up a year entering grade school as we see that he can handle it academically and emotionally (and he is doing well as a freshman right now).  We didn't even think about sports at that time, nor were we aware that people are doing the opposite (repeating a grade).  So he has classmates that are 2 years older than he is right now.  He is playing travel with his age group (not with his grade).  I do find myself letting people know he is young for his grade when it comes to sports.  This thread is a reminder for me to quit doing that.
