Is it advantageous to be born in early month?

I found something to see a handout which was written about birthdays of my son's teammates of soccer club.

[Team 1] (the strongest team)
birth month / the number of members
April / 2
May / 2
June / 2
August / 1
September / 1
October / 1
November / 1
December / 1


[Team 2]
November / 1
December / 1
February / 4
March / 1


As you may know, the oldest student among the same grade was born in April in Japanese school because a school year starts in April.
I was surprised to see that no one was born after in January in the Team 1. And many of the Team 2 members were born in the latter months of the same grade.
Even though they got older in elementary school, sometimes there still are gaps between students born in earlier month and ones in the latter month.
And it is interesting to see that the Team 1 members are watching other games, while the Team 2 members are playing (not playing soccer) with each other without watching them.

Does my son belong to the Team 2 because he was born in February? I hope so!

I found something in a handout which had been written about the birthdays of my son's soccer club teammates.

As you may know, in the Japanese school system, because the school year starts in April, the oldest students in each grade were born in the month of April.

I was surprised to see that no one was born after January on Team 1, while many of the Team 2 members were born in the latter months of their grade.

Even though most students mature at relatively the same rate in elementary school, sometimes there are still significant performance gaps between students born in the earlier months, and ones born in the latter months of a particular school year, because the older ones *will have had a head start.

*I used 'will have had' because this statement is general in context, and it speaks of all in the past, present, and of those in the future.

It is interesting to see that the Team 1 members are watching other games, while the Team 2 members are playing (not playing soccer) with each other instead of watching them.

Does my son belong to Team 2 because he was born in February? I hope so!

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

I had learned 'will have had' before, but it is still difficult for me to use.
