Registered Regatta Program
2013 Registered Regatta Program
Registering your regatta with USRowing means that your regatta is officially and nationally recognized as a safe and fair event, meeting the highest standards for American regattas. More than 200 regattas registered with USRowing in 2012.
The 2013 Registered Regatta program continues to provide your regatta official recognition and, in addition, offers regatta organizers unprecedented “no additional cost” liability and excess medical insurance benefits for the regatta and its participants.

- The host organization(s) must be an active organizational member of USRowing.
- The registered regatta application and the appropriate sanctioning fee must be received by USRowing one month prior to the event date. Indoor regattas should complete all pertinent information relating to an indoor event. Applications will not be processed until payment is received. A confirmation e-mail will be sent out to the regatta director and chief referee once the application has been approved and processed.
- All organizations participating in a registered event must be active members of USRowing and must compete under their official USRowing membership name. You may compete as unaffiliated if you do not wish to pay the organizational fee. However, each participating member must be an individual member of USRowing. Regatta Directors are responsible for informing all participating organizations of this requirement.
- If the regatta is using RegattaCentral’s registration services, participating organizations will be notified if they do not comply with the above policy. If the regatta is not using RegattaCentral for registration, a list of tentative participating organizations must accompany the registered regatta application. As other crews register for the regatta, the organizing committee must notify USRowing. USRowing will contact those organizations that do not comply.
- The regatta organizing committee must work with USRowing to ensure that all participating organizations are USRowing member organizations. USRowing suggests adding this requirement in your initial announcements about the regatta.
- The regatta must have in place a fully-licensed USRowing referee confirmed to the role of chief referee (Rules of Rowing, 2-101, 2-102, 2-103 for sprint races; rule 8-105 for head races). The regatta organizing committee must work with the chief referee to ensure that the necessary referee positions are staffed with USRowing licensed full or assistant referees. (Rules of Rowing, 2-104 for sprint races; rule 8-105 for head races.)
- The regatta organizing committee must work with the chief referee to determine that the regatta meets USRowing’s safe and fair standards for the registered regatta program. Any exceptions or amendments to the rules of rowing must be submitted to USRowing. Exceptions or amendments will not be allowed to any asterisked (*) rule. (Rues of Rowing, 1-104).
- After the completion of the regatta, the chief referee and regatta director are responsible for compiling the safety checklist and any necessary insurance report forms. These forms should be sent to USRowing within 30 days of the event. If you have any questions or need the information faxed to you, please contact our membership department at 1-800-314-4769.
