My son will turn 14 in the middle of the Fall season this year. I'm not sure if he should try out for a 14U team, or if he should continue with 13U in the Fall and try out for 14U in the Spring. Any thoughts on this are appreciated.

This post has gotten quite a few views, but no responses. I'd love to hear from parents as well as coaches or managers.

You're leaving a lot of details out, if you're hoping for any kind of meaningful response.

What grad year?

Playing 13U now? 54/80 or 60/90?

Most kids play for the same team in the Fall and then Spring season; are you trying to avoid that for any reason?

Is he any good?

Is his current team any good?

Is he any good? Yes, for a AA or maybe AAA level. Is his current team any good? Yes, they're pretty good, but that's not really my consideration. I'm not trying to avoid playing for the same team Fall and Spring. Much of his 13U team is aging out now, but he won't turn 14 until late October.

All I'm really asking is for opinions on whether he would be better off trying out for and playing on a 14U team this Fall, or (since he will still be eligible) if he should play 13U again in the Fall and then try out for a 14U team in the Spring. His age puts in him an in-between spot. I'm sure I'm not the first or only dad in this situation, so I'm seeking opinions.

May 1 is the cutoff for his birthdate. If he can play 13U in fall. He can play it in the spring. Hope that helps.
