To optimize the learning experience for the child, kids are placed in country groups to better match teaching themes across a group. Rowing is a team sport; your child’s rowing directly affects the rowing environment for the other kids in the boat.

The assignments are not a judgment of long-term development. Parents can help their kids to deescalate expectations around these groups.

Using the country assignments as a general guide to skill level, actual boat lineups at practice are created to respond to the attendance and weather conditions experienced for the practice session. Boatings by country help with teaching themes. But some days it‘s more helpful for the team as a whole to mix boats across countries.

Boat lineups are not finalized or announced until after the kids have checked in that day. Lineups are not sent out ahead of time because middle school families have busy lives and so attendance is unpredictable, and because weather conditions change.

Here are section assignments for the middle school spring program for the spring season of 2018.
