When I started playing the term "young guns" refered to kids 10-15, it was not based on skill level. We were playing our first tourneys against kids up in novice CFOA, most of the kids are now d1 or pro.
depends on skill level/age imo lactaion might have alot to do with the two and i feel that both those things are related. a few reasons: bigger places = more ballers usually= more people for young ballers to play with/ associate with. i find people are clicky and well alot of ballers get big egos/dare i say the word ignorant? to the needs of the younger players/our sports future egos and clicky idealisms at the field just hurt the younger players. more so in smaller areas and theese players wont play asmuch if the feel alianated by the older members if thier the only ones out there. i believe its all about exposure age doesnt have as much to do with it as exposure/skill level i can go to a tournement in a bigger area and get killed by a team of little 14 year old kids or show up at a tournement the same size but with teams from smaller areas and almost always the yound players are playing low divisions. i dont think there can really be a blanket number for this, we can al shoot and snap perfectly fine older players usually have played more and just gotten better at it but if you take a 14 year old and a 25 year old with the same skill level and put them against eachother id have to say the 14 year old will have an huge advantage due to thier size if not anything else

the creatine has entered my veins. i can feel it raging inside of me. i look down and realize my 11 inch biceps have swollen at least half an inch. i become scared of my own strength. mother knocks on the door to tell me good night, but i tell her not to open the door...i dont want her to see me like this. moments later i catch myself looking at myself in the mirror...i can barely recognize myself.
then i remember the internet is down...and im forced to jack off to thoughts of a girl in my class into a sock. i watch the george lopez show then go to sleep"
16< under 16 you need lower prices and entry fees on account of not hVing a job. When I started at 12 my parents told mr they wernt goin to pay for squat. I naught spyder ion, shocker And soon ego all on my own. Untill you can ge a job ( maybe 15) it's just not logicL to play in tourneys other than young gun.
