Many coaches and competitors complain that although they’ve signed waivers on-line at USRowing, and have screenshots to prove it, they’re listed in RegattaCentral’s waiver compliance report as noncompliant. The main reason that USRowing waivers don’t show up in the RegattaCentral report is that competitors' names don’t match.
Many name mismatches are caused by misspellings and inconsistent use of nicknames. Competitors are unlikely to misspell their own names, but coaches need to be careful to spell their athletes’ names correctly.
Concerning nicknames, using them is OK so long as for a given athlete the nickname is always used and is always the same, but the safest policy is always to use competitors’ formal names. Here are a few of the many mismatches detected before the 2014 PumpkinHead:
Rachel Silkorski Rachel Sikorski
Allie Mitchel Allie Mitchell
Gel Greene Angelica Greene
Carolina Cirilo Guizar Carolina Cirilo
Tim Poole Timothy Poole
Saige Culberson Saige Culbertson
Another cause of waiver failures is that many athletes have multiple USRowing accounts. Speak with your club administrator to merge duplicate accounts.
