What is max age for 'Kids' in FTC?

Post by valgozi » October 19th, 2015, 4:14 am

Just wondered if 'kids' are under 18's or younger?

I can not find an age definition on the C2 website anywhere.

That's the normal age limit for rowing.

It turns out that for the FTC 'kids' are 16 or under.

Bit bad that wasn't in the terms and conditions for the challenge or any text, when 16 or under is quite easy to add.

'Kids' left us assuming under 18, not 16 or under.

The definition of when you're a child vs when you're an adult is the most mixed up thing in world politics. If you want to see how not to do it, look at the UK. The UK has some of the worst and most inconsistent rules. Is it 16, 17, 18 or 21?

Agreed very confusing term to use and varies depending on what for every time.

Hence using the actual age defination '16 or under' would take no room or time to have added it instead of 'kids'. I am quite sure the definition changed from 'juniors' to 'kids' as well, but I could be imagining that.

Disappointed junior not getting a C2 cap now :? Will just have to row further next time!

In my book, a kid is anyone born after August 15, 1927.
