In December 2014, the USRowing Board passed revisions to the USRowing Rules of Racing in regard to USRowing Trials Rules Article VI that is meant to allow a more FISA influenced basis for the rules of racing.

The document below outlines comments and exceptions that will be used at NSRs and US Trials events regarding FISA Rules of Racing, and was approved by the HPC on April 6, 2015.

These rules do not change how selection to the team takes place as it is stated in the 2015 Selection Procedures.
