Should you hold back your kids to get a leg up on the competition for college scholarships?

In brief: No

Can you please clarify is this sports related scholarship or an academic one? Either way holding one back for this reason alone does not seem like a good idea.
I would include my child in this decision as the child is the one who ultimately pays the price. The stress may not be worth it especially to the child. I assume we are discussing a teenager in this question...
