The National Collegiate Athletic Association establishs rules that affect how and when high school athletes can talk to college crew coaches. In general, you have to be a HS junior in July of your junior year before you (the athlete) can talk directly to an NCAA-sanctioned crew coach. This gets very complex and is compounded by many colleges interpreting the NCAA rules differently. Do your homework on this one in your sophomore year of HS.
