Regatta Schedule

The Rocket City Rowing junior program competes at 3-4 regattas in the Fall and the spring in Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida as well as one indoor rowing competition in January. Fall races are conducted in a head race format where boats row against the clock, departing at 15-30 second intervals over an approximately 5000 meter course that varies according to the local geography. Spring races are conducted on a 2,000 meter course against a field of 6-8 other boats of the same classification set by age, experience level, and number of oars in the water. Spring racing culminates in district, regional and national level championships.)
