USRowing announced a four-year partnership with the Scholastic Rowing Association of America in February to broadcast SRAA National Championships live.
This year’s event features more than 3,200 athletes from 175 clubs racing in 32 events. The SRAA National Championship regatta is an invitational regatta held annually on Memorial Day weekend. Invitations to the regatta are open to qualified crews of any public or private school given to the education of youth. Crews are invited based on their performance at a qualifying championship.
W.E. Garrett Gilmore founded the Schoolboy Rowing Association of America on May 14, 1935. The association was formed to foster schoolboy rowing and to stage an annual regatta open to all schools of the world, the winner to be recognized as North American Champions. The first regatta was conducted in May of 1935 and has been held every year since. Women started competing in 1974. The name was changed to Scholastic Rowing Association of America in 1976 to reflect the addition of women. The Scholastic Rowing Association of America (SRAA) has been the principal source of rules and procedures governing high school rowing. The association has helped many emerging high school crew programs by providing both sound advice and helpful contacts within the rowing community. The primary function of the SRAA is to run the scholastic championship regatta each May, determining the North American Champions. High school athletics does not allow sporting events to be held which decide national champions. For more information, visit http://www.sraa.net/.
