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.

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.
