USRowing is pleased to announce the juries for the 2019 National Team selection events. These juries will serve as the referees for the various national selection regattas and national team trials, ensuring safe and fair competition.
“These trials events are pivotal moments in an athlete’s journey to making our national teams, and we are grateful for the referees who work these unique events every year,” said USRowing Manager of Referee Programs Jules Zane. “Referees will often tell you they’ve done their job well when they aren’t noticed and that is especially the case for these high-stakes races. Referees, while on the docks and on the water, are a key piece in safely and fairly selecting our national teams each year.”
