Garden State Scholastic Championships

  • Hosted By: Cooper River Rowing Association
  • Cancelled

Good evening everyone,

Due Covid-19 restriction on the Cooper River this year's regatta is cancelled. We will try again next year.

COVID-19 Monitoring/Contact Tracing

Prescreening, social distancing and mandatory mask wearing will be implemented for the athletes, coaches, referees, parent volunteers and regatta organizers helping to run the regatta. Mast will be worn at all times while on land. Anyone associated with the regatta not wearing a mask will be removed from the park. Coxswain will be required to wear a mask and eye protection while on the water.

Prescreening will consist of a series of questions and a temperature check recorded on the monitoring form.

Monitoring forms must be turned into regatta staff at the finish line before racing starts

We are asking that each team appoint a coach to be in charge of the screening process for your athletes and coaches.


The Regatta committee is discouraging spectator attendance in the park to avoid the potential for exceedance of governmental regulations on gathering sizes/social distancing protocols.  Violations of protocols could jeopardize the completion of the regatta.

No spectators Please!


  • Parking is located curbside down the race course in any legal parking spot.  Any area marked no parking is off limits to spectators, coaches, or athletes.
  • Trailers can arrive anytime on Friday but the course is not open. 
  • Chuck Wagons and cooking of food will not be permitted this year due to Covid-19 
  • Team tents will not be allowed this year due to Covid-19
