Team Point Trophies
Teams are qualified to participate in the team point competition if 10 or more seats are registered with the same affiliation prior to race day. One rower may sit in two seats (in other words, one rower may pre-register for more than one race and take up more than one seat). That affiliation will be a team in the team point competition. Known junior teams will be put in the Junior Team Point category. All other teams will be in the Open Team Point category.
Any participant who is registered with an affiliation that qualifies as a team can earn points towards their team for the team point competition. Points for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each event (not each flight, but each event) will be tallied per team.
1st place finisher in an event --- 5 points
2nd place finisher in an event -- 3 points
3rd place finisher in an event --- 1 point
Points will be tallied as the day progresses and a team point trophy will be awarded to the team with the most points.
Points are awarded in every event, including the coxswain, 13 and under, 500 and 1000 meter dashes and team relay events. If interested in winning this award, it would be in your team's best interest to compete in these events.
