*Update on USRowing Rules for Racing 3-106 Electronic Devices 

The FISA interpretation 5.1 Communication will be applied to 2010 NSR's and National Team Selection events:

"During racing, no processed data or communications may be electronically received in the boat and no data or communication of any sort may be sent electronically from the boat. Raw data, such as from speed sensors, GPS location, heart and stroke rate, etc., may be collected, received, processed and/or stored in the boat during racing. However, FISA may install on each boat device(s) for the purpose of transmitting real-time race information which shall be owned by FISA and may be used for any purpose including presentation and promotion of the event and the sport."

USRowing Compliance 
All competitors must have a current USRowing membership and liability waiver on file. Athletes will not be permitted to launch if they are not in compliance with these requirements. Please check your status and renew your membership and waiver before arriving for competition. This can be done online at www.usrowing.org or by contacting member services at 1-800-314-4ROW.

All vehicles must park in the lot as you come off Post Road and not in the gravel next to the boathouse. Boat trailers may park along the dirt access road behind the boathouse. No other vehicles are allowed behind the boathouse.

Emergency vehicles will need to have a clear path from the paved road all the way to the tree line behind the boathouse. Any vehicle not following the outlined parking rules will be towed at the owner’s expense. 

You will NOT be able to drive your car behind the boathouse in order to unload your equipment. Please walk your equipment from the designated parking zones to the boat storage area.

Boat Storage 
All boats will be stored outside on the lawn next to or behind the national team bays (far side of the boathouse). Your boat will be moved if it is elsewhere.

There is no access to shower facilities at the Caspersen Boathouse. Restroom facilities will be available. The Caspersen boathouse offices are closed to all athletes and coaches.

As outlined in the 2010 Rules of Rowing:
  • All competitors must be citizens or nationals of the United States.
  • No competitor may wear the uniform of the U.S. National Team during competition
  • Use of National Team colors on oars is prohibited

Registration Information 
Register online through RegattaCentral at www.RegattaCentral.com

USRowing membership is required: visit www.usrowing.org to renew or join.

Trials Winners Information  
All trials winners must present a valid U.S. passport to secure their berth on the team. Due to the quick turnaround between trials and departure for the Czech Republic, it will be very difficult for athletes to apply for a passport between winning and departure, so if necessary please begin this process well ahead of time. All trials winners are also required to propose a coach at the trials, who is required to travel with the crew for the length of the world championships.

All athletes winning berths at the selection trials must submit, in conjunction with their intent to compete, a payment per athlete to cover the expenses of food, lodging and local transportation during the world championships. Proposed coaches of boats at the world championships must submit payment in the full amount at the end of trials as well.

The cost per athlete and per coach for the 2010 Junior World Championships is estimated at $1,550.00 and will be finalized no later than June 19. 

The final price does not include airfare from the U.S. to Europe, nor does it include the cost of equipment. Those plans and expenses are left to the coach and athletes. However, athletes and coaches making the trip will be advised by USRowing staff which dates the team should arrive/depart Europe.

All crews are responsible for securing competition equipment while in Racice. USRowing will be able to provide contact information for international boat manufacturers at the end of trials.
