    My son is a rower and has applied for USNA and has a congressional nomination. Should he be offered a spot at NAPs and not the academy, is there a rowing option at NAPs? Or do rowers who go to NAPs row with local club programs instead?

    My understanding is that rowing is not offered at NAPS, but is offered at some of the other Foundation schools.

    A good friend of my son’s had a foundation scholarship to “The Gunnery School” in Connecticut for rowing before going to USNA in the class of ‘13 - it’s hard to believe that young man is now a USMC Captain

    I think Kent in CT is a foundation school with rowing as well
