***IF YOUR ROWER IS IN THE RUNNING TO BE SELECTED FOR MIDWEST, HIS/HER COACH WILL BE INFORMING THEM SHORTLY. CONFIRMATION OF ROWERS SELECTED MAY NOT BE FOR ANOTHER WEEK OR SO (COACHES DISCRETION, MAY BE PENDING SEAT RACES OR ERG TIMES), BUT WE AT LEAST WANT TO GIVE ROWERS AND PARENTS A HEADS UP THAT THEIR ROWER MIGHT BE SELECTED, AND TO CHECK FOR ANY SCHEDULING CONFLICTS. (prom, AP exams, other extracurriculars)*****
Transportation, food, and lodging will be provided for all rowers. THERE WILL BE AN EXTRA FEE OF $150.00 FOR THIS REGATTA IF YOUR ROWER IS SELECTED.
As this is a smaller group, we will be completely dependent on the parents attending to help with chaperoning, food tent, and such. A sign up genius may be generated if need be, but that has not been determined.
Hopefully this will be helpful, there are a lot of details yet to be determined, and we will email you as soon as we have more information.
ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SELECTION PROCESS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO COACHING.
The Midwest Scholastic Championship is sponsored by the Midwest Scholastic Rowing Association. The regatta will be at Lake Dillion near Zanesville OH.
The purpose of the MSRA is to sponsor an annual Midwest Scholastic Championship among teams representing a single secondary school during the second weekend in May and to also promote information exchange and regatta scheduling among the member organizations. The MSRA encompasses approximately 57 member schools from 7 states.
The Championship Regatta consists of 30 different events, 15 for men and 15 for women, spaced over a two day period. For most events, competitors must race through qualifying heats and semi-finals in order to advance to their final race. The regatta has been averaging 90 +/- races before the 30 finals. The competition is always strong as the best high school scholastic programs from the Midwest are represented.
