SRAM 2021 Championship Regatta – Division 1

  • Hosted By: Scholastic Rowing Association of Michigan

Hello Coaches, Athletes and Volunteers,

There will be no changes to the mask mandate at the SRAM Championships this year.  Masks must be worn by all coaches, athletes and volunteers in all regatta areas and on the docks.  Spectators will not be in these common areas.  Rowers may follow their team's rules for mask wearing once they are on the water.  

We have athletes, coaches and volunteers at different levels of concern over the spread of COVID.  While our event is smaller than usual, we are still bringing together 100s of people from all over the state.  I hope all coaches will help enforce the mask mandate for safety and out of respect for others.  

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Pat Hickey

Due to increased school participation and safety considerations we are revising our parking policies.  With the exception of boat trailer tow vehicles, all parking will now be restricted to outside the park entrance.  Permits will now be required. 

Please review the new policies on the Direction and Parking page  

Boat trailers will park as normal.  Trailers past the yellow gate at the north end, tow vehicles by the shelter area.  Please stop by headquarters and pick up a permit for your tow vehicle.  You will need to display it if you leave the park and return Saturday or Sunday am.

UTILITY TRAILERS AND TOW VEHICLES

Supply vehicles must have a permit to deliver supplies to the team tent area. Two permits per team will be available at Headquarters beginning Friday at 4:00pm or Saturday morning from the Regatta Parking Official. Parking for trailers is once again on Guild Street. Please make sure your volunteers know that the permits will allow them to enter Guild Street and deliver supplies only.  Vehicles making deliveries may NOT be left unattended at any time.
