Junior Rower: USRowing defines a youth as: “A Youth is a Competitor who in the current calendar year does not attain the age of 19, or who is and has been continuously enrolled in secondary school as a full- time student seeking a diploma. A Competitor thus ceases to be a Youth after December 31 of the year of his or her 18th  birthday, or of the year in which he or she completes the 12th grade of secondary school, having been a full-time student, whichever is later.”

Per USRowing rules, Masters Events are limited to competitors who have attained or will attain the age of 21 during the current calendar year. A competitor’s age is determined as of December 31 of the current calendar year, rounded down to the highest contained integer. A competitor thus becomes a Master on January 1 of the year of his or her 21st birthday. A Masters crew shall be comprised exclusively of Masters rowers, but the coxswain need not be a Master. Handicap and other information can be found on the Rules & Procedures page.
