8th Grade Athletes

8th-grade athletes interested in rowing on the Freshman Novice Team can start the Fall Session with the Freshman Novice squad.  Athletes and parents must have the understanding that this is a probationary period, and after a meeting in September with the Head Coach, parents, and rower, the most appropriate decision on placement will be made.
