Admission Requirements

Honor Code

Athletes are asked to agree to an honor code so that they avoid:  

    • Action that misleads or deceives; 
    • Conduct that gives them or others an unfair advantage;
    • Action that deprives another person of his/her rightful property; 
    • Action that hurts or disrespects another person; and 
    • Action that brings discredit to MRC community and reputation. 

To help create the best environment that allows every participant to realize their goals in the sport of rowing, we ask that as part of the admissions process, prospective athletes submit a letter of recommendation from a previous coach or current teacher and a signed form from a school administrator certifying or disclosing that the prospective athlete does / does not have any significant or chronic disciplinary issues (suspensions, chronic detentions, kicked out of class, sent to the principle, etc.). 

Athletic and Physical Requirements

MRC strongly believes that a teenager’s future athletic potential is limitless if they are willing to work hard. While prior experience in rowing will certainly be helpful, it is not required so long as the athlete promises to work his/her hardest. If the athlete has no prior rowing experience, they must be able to demonstrate a moderate level of physical fitness (8:40 / 2k on the ergometer; or 9 minute mile pace) after a short period of initial instruction and pass a swim test.
