We have the capacity to manage a team that includes 50 boys and 50 girls this year, including no more than 20 novice and freshmen boys and 20 novice and freshmen girls. We won’t know for sure if we need to make cuts until we begin the spring season in mid-February and see how many returning and new rowers are committed to the team. For example, if we have only 15 freshman and novice boy members, we can accommodate 35 varsity boys and all 15 freshman/novice boys.
If cuts need to be made, the cuts will be made solely by the coaches with no input from the Board or any parents. The coaches have developed a form which will be shared with each student, that takes into account things such as the student’s attitude, attendance, consistency, and ergometer scores. A parent’s level of involvement in the club has no bearing on the student’s membership decision.
