Our S19 may want to try to walk on to Bowdoin's XC/track team. The assistant coach told him back in November that, if he was accepted, that he would be welcome on the team. He contacted the head coach a few weeks ago but has not heard back. I think S19 should call him but he's been so busy that he hasn't gotten around to it yet.
Would the XC team get to school earlier than the freshman to train? If he wanted to walk on, should we expect that the coach would just ask him to come to practice once the freshman arrive on campus? I know some sports have kids show up early but those would only be the recruited and returning athletes. Wondering how walking onto a team works and what the timeline looks like.
Hoping S19 and the coach connect soon but thought I'd ask her in the meantime.
