Coaching for real!
The novice boat, is definitely the stronger boat, it has a couple of juniors that are really big and really strong and he took the rest of the biggest and strongest rowers for that boat, which makes sense, since it helps if the boys are similar in size and ability. Obviously, he'll want to coach the boat that has the best chance of being successful, which is fine and as it should be. Less pressure on me, if the goal is to get these kids to row by 8's and come together as a team. Not a lot of expectation that they'll be hugely successful. I mean my bow seat weighs 98 lbs and the rest aren't much bigger. Towards the end of practice, Mike found us and we did a couple of 20 stroke races and my little freshman stepped up and held their own. They may not be the biggest or the strongest, but they have heart.
