I believe that the freshmen took part in the women’s European trip. Perhaps it may have something to do with how the trip is financed.

I believe it also depends on when during the summer the trip takes place and if the freshman are officially enrolled at that point.


How the trip is financed is irrelevant. And whether the incoming frosh are enrolled is only tangentially relevant. The rule is that for the incoming freshmen to be allowed to participate, they must have been enrolled for a summer session and earned credits prior to the trip.

It would seem like all teams would want to delay the trip until the end of summer, but in fact many don’t. One reason for that is that many coaches want to reward their just-graduated seniors, who hadn’t taken a trip previously, and many of those graduates have started real world jobs by August and can’t get a couple of weeks off to travel to Europe.
