National Team Spectator Information

Welcome to the National Team Family and Friends section of the USRowing website. This section is intended to provide parents, friends and family members of National Team rowers with important information about international competitions including the Junior, Under 23, and Senior World Championships, as well as the Olympic Games. Please check back often as pages are continuously updated as we receive new information.

Friends and Family Hotel Policy

As in the past, it is U.S. team policy that friends and family do not stay in the same hotel as the team. We appreciate your cooperation with this rule. Friends and family are invited to meet with athletes in the hotel lobby. However, out of respect for other team members, friends and family are not allowed on athlete floors, in athlete rooms, or in team dinning halls. Friends and Family are not allowed to use athlete transportation, but can use other venue transportation organized by the organizing committee if available. Athletes are welcome to eat outside of the hotel with their friends and family, but must notify their coach if you intend to do so prior to the meal.

Senior/Para Tickets

The FISA Family Grandstand is an area of the grandstand allocated to the families and close friends of the participating rowers, offering them a prime position close to the finish and medal ceremonies. Tickets are €40 per seat and valid for all days of racing.

These must be purchased through USRowing by calling Alex Wilson at 609-751-0714 or emailing Please include your full name, email address, number of tickets requested, and credit card number and expiration date. The number of spaces in the FISA Family Grandstand are limited, so tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

USRowing will place one order at a time through the Organizing Committee on behalf of the requests received and will only charge credit cards if the ticket request has been fulfilled. Tickets can be collected from the entrance.

Under 19 Tickets

The covered grandstand is currently sold out. However, there are FREE uncovered grandstands with capacity over 1,500 seats for all racing days. They will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be located right next to the covered grandstand alongside the course.
