Once our children start college, they will play players several years older. I believe that a junior who likes to play up would be more successful in college tennis. Starting school a year or two late or repeating 8th grades would surely help boosting her/his TRN ranking that is dependent on the year of graduation. But would anybody honestly believe that this kid is a much better tennis player by repeating the 8th grade?
