  • What To Do Before Heading to Registration: Waivers

    Sweep Registration

    • Waivers and Rosters must be completed online by October 9th through RegattaCentral. Coaches can check athlete waivers status by clicking “waiver status & instruction” in their RegattaCentral account.
    • The Head Of The Charles Regatta uses the USRowing waiver for USRowing Clubs. Members of USRowing Clubs will be directed to the USRowing waiver, while HOCR and FISA IRC holders will be directed to the HOCR waiver. If you have already signed your USRowing waiver for 2019 then you do not need to sign it again.
    • Line-Ups must be completed through your RegattaCentral before arriving at Onsite Registration. If necessary, late changes may be made at Registration, but this may cause delays.


    Sculling Registration

    • Scullers should complete their waivers through RegattaCentral by October 9th.
    • Line-Ups in 1x and 2x events cannot be changed after the time of entry application, with the sole exception of the Youth 1x, Youth 2x, and College-Championship 2x crews.
  • What to Bring to Onsite Registration: Identification

    Sweep Registration

    • A representative from a team may come to collect packets. This individual will be considered responsible for those competitor packets. Changes to line-ups and/or missing waivers will result in a delay in pick-up.
    • Lightweight Crews must weigh-in before they will be permitted to pick up their competitor packets.

    Sculling Registration

    • All 1x scullers and one representative from each 2x scull must attend Registration
    • Government-issued photo identification.
    • If you are a US rower unaffiliated with a USRowing member institution, you must bring your USRowing membership card.
