Hi my Dd received some correspondence from a coach at KP. We planned to visit some time back but our time was short on the east coast and had some snow, so didn't want to chance making the trip. Maybe our search words and sentences are not pulling the correct threads or web info? We want to study up a bit more on our own before she contacts the coach and or KP. Here are a couple of questions. Sea duty: How does this work sophomore(1st time) year and the athlete? I get they will not play their sport when out to sea, so will they still possibly play for 4 years? How does this work with the classes? Is it difficult to get back into college mode once coming back? It seems as though it will take longer to graduate with 1 st and 2nd sea duty requirements? What is it like for a female during both of these required times of sea duty? What about piracy and these vessels? These are private vessels owned by the shipping company? What type of a careers do most women go into after graduation? Do most go into military service or noaa? I apologize in advance if these may fall into the realm of repeat questions.
