FSRA State Sweep Championships weekend is Friday 4/27 - Sunday 4/29.
This is a travel regatta for our high school rowers and there is additional cost associated with it. Emails have gone out to those selected to attend. If you have any questions about your participation in this regatta, please see Coach Terry before registering.
Cost per rower to attend this year's Sweep States is $255 which includes transportation to and from the regatta, lodging, dinner Friday, breakfast (at the hotel) and regatta fees.
Due to timing considerations and the fact that not all rowers will be at the regatta during lunch, there will not be full hospitality. Please make sure your rower has money for lunch Fri, Sat & Sun.
There will be substantial snacks and drinks provided at the race course for rowers to tide over and keep fueled between meals.

We are required to supply volunteers for this event. Please sign up for something to help us meet this obligation.
A full official itinerary will be provided as the schedule firms up approaching race weekend. You/your rower will be missing all or part of school on Friday. Please make arrangements to have all your school work covered. If you have any reason why you can't depart with the team on Friday, please let Coach Terry know immediately.
