Southern Intercollegiate Rowing Association (SIRA) Regatta

- Melton Hill Lake
- Oak Ridge, TN (USA)
- Hosted By Southern Intercollegiate Rowing Association
- 2020 Registered Regatta
With great regret, the Board of Directors of the Southern Intercollegiate Rowing Association announces the cancellation of the 54th annual SIRA Championship Regatta.
The board has been attempting for weeks to determine the feasibility of conducting the event, but every news cycle over the past few days has only gotten worse. With the growing number of programs already unable to attend because of university policies, we are not able financially to hold the regatta, and potential losses could also have an effect on the quality of the event for years to come.
Added to financial concerns is the well-being of attending squads, referee corps, and local volunteers. With top experts in public health, professional sports leagues, and experienced administrators at the NCAA and other organizations taking drastic steps to cancel or suspend operations, we feel it is morally and ethically, as well as fiscally responsible to make this determmination.
We share the disappointment of all involved, and hope to see you all at the SIRA Championships in 2021!
