Got Scholar Athletes? The New York State Scholastic Rowing Association is back with some tweaks and additions. We have (hopefully) streamlined the process to get awards out faster, made it easier for small teams (less than 9 student athletes) to be recognized and will also be honoring fall athletes. The forms are slated for Spring 2019 with a June 30, 2019 deadline and the grading period is the 3rd quarter. We also updated the 2019 form to include acceptance of un-weighted and weighted scores so our AP student athletes are not penalized. For teams wishing to recognize their Fall 2018 athletes, use the same form and use the 1st quarter grading period for your student athletes. Submissions only with 9 or more student athletes will be considered for the overall NYSSRA Scholar Athlete Team of Distinction Award, but small programs with scholar athletes will still be recognized on the New York State Rowing web-site, receive certificates and pins.
