LIGHTWEIGHTS:

In addition to the Junior Lightweight event, there are lightweight divisions within the Open, Master, Senior and Veteran events.  If you enter the lightweight division of an event, you will be eligible to win a first place award only as a lightweight.  In other words, we will not be awarding multiple awards to one athlete.  Lightweights are 165 lbs. or less for men and 135 lbs. or less for women.  Lightweights must weigh-in 30 minutes prior to their event. Each athlete will have a total of two (2) times to weigh in. If weight is not made the second time on the scale the athlete will not be allowed to race in the event.

RELAY RULES:

This event is FREE if you are registered for another event otherwise it’s $5 per seat.  Relay teams are made up of six participants, four rowers and two assistants. Total distance is 3000 meters, in which each rower must row at least once. There is no limit as to the number of times an athlete may row however.

WAIVERS:

The Arizona Indoor Rowing Championship participants must complete the waiver (see waiver tab on left) and bring it to the check-in desk on race day.  Competitors under age 18 must have a parent or guardian’s signature. 

AWARDS:

Medals will be awarded to the first place competitor in each category of an event.  For the Junior Lightweight and Junior Open events the categories will be men and women.  The remaining events each have four categories:  women’s lightweight, women’s heavyweight, men’s lightweight and men’s heavyweight.

SAFETY:

An EMT will be set up to deal with on-site emergencies.  Anyone who feels ill or thinks they may need EMT attention should go to the firefighter immediately.  In order to minimize the need to seek EMT attention, athletes who are fighting a flu or a cold should not compete.  Athletes should eat two or three hours before competing and remember to stay hydrated.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

* All events use Concept II rowing machines, Model ‘D’ and ‘E’.

* Competitive events are 2000 meters, Adaptive 1000 meters, and 3000 meter 4 persons relay, with damper setting fixed at athlete’s or team’s discretion.
