All Junior rowers, Varsity and Novice alike, compete in multiple regattas and scrimmages as part of the Fall Season and Spring Season rowing programs each year. Check back to this page for all the latest Regatta Schedule updates, including a full set of helpful links, as they become available.
For each event, you will find the regatta website (or for a scrimmage, the website of the hosting team), the regatta kitchen schedule, carpool details and, most importantly, the updated guide for each regatta from the BIR Parent Leadership Team (with directions, day-by-day schedules, items to bring, required documentation, and other helpful tips) a few days before the racing begins.
