I am interested in the process of how the MIDN try out for a sport...can anyone shed some light? My son (currently a plebe, 2018) was contacted this spring by the crew coach, even though he has never been on a crew team! I think the coach looked at DS stature (height/weight, HS sports stats) and thought DS has the "wingspan" to be a decent rower. Do all tryouts occur during plebe summer, or closer to the season? From the Navy Sport website it looks like crew competes year-round, and there is a "freshmen" and "varsity" roster, but not much additional info is provided. How does this work - for crew, shooting sports, and maybe other sports in general (if there is anyone else out there wondering...) Thanks for any input!
