NEW! - VIP Tickets

USRowing is excited to announce our first ever VIP tent experience at the 2021 USRowing Masters Nationals Championships! VIP ticket holders will have exclusive access to a cooling tent throughout the event and leave with your very own 2021 Masters Nationals swag bag. The cooling tent will offer programing throughout the day, including yoga and workout sessions, rowing related sessions (e.g. how to rig your single, how to maintain your oars, and more!) to make you a faster masters rower and a fun mix of social activities each evening including "Amanda Kraus Hosts" on Thursday night, “Rowing Trivia - Tennessee Style!”, and a "Taste of Tennessee"on Saturday night.
