Methuen Novice Invitational

  • Hosted By: Essex Rowing Club, Inc.

Athlete Classification

A Junior participant is a competitors who in the current calendar year does not attain the age of 19, or who is and has been continuously enrolled in secondary school as a fulltime student seeking a diploma. A Competitor thus ceases to be a Youth after December 31 of the year of his or her 18th birthday, or of the year in which he or she completes the 12th grade of secondary school, having been a full-time student, whichever is later.

Novice participants may not have competed in a race on or before May 2, 2014. A novice coxswain does not also need to be a novice rower and vis versa if they have recenlty switched disciplines.

Freshman participants must be enrolled in 9th grade (or lower) in a secondary school. Participants that are repeating 9th grade are not eligible unless they are also novice.
