2011 Junior World Championships Trials #1


Junior World Championship Trials #1 – June 26 - 29, 2011

****Due to a scheduling conflict with the Mercer County Park, the Junior World Championship Trials will be run out of the Casperson Boathouse, not from the marina (directions below). Coaches and athlete meeting will be held in front of the National Team boat bays at 5:00 p.m. Athletes will also launch from the Casperson Boathouse throughout the competition. There will be no boat storage on the marina side, only at the Caspersen Boathouse. Please contact Fred Honebein fred@usrowing.org if you have any questions.****

**** Practice for the starting system used during trials (light and tone) will be available two times. Once on Monday during the morning practice session from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. and again on Tuesday during the morning practice session 11:00 a.m.– noon. Information, procedure and start sequence traffic pattern will be discussed at the Athlete meeting****

Trials Winners Information

All trials winners must present a valid U.S. passport to secure their berth on the team.  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 2011 Junior World Championships is estimated at $1,500.00 and will be finalized no later than June 20.

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 Eton. USRowing will be able to provide contact information for international boat manufacturers at the end of trials.


All vehicles must park in the lot as you come off South 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.
