For 2015, Dogwood is returning to a heat and finals schedule (not flights) and will extend to a two-day schedule to allow for petite finals/repechage events.
We are working with our chief ref and several coaches as we develop this new schedule, so that it will be a great event for all teams and competitors.
Coach / Coxswains Meetings:
Meetings will be held at 6:30am on Saturday and 8:00am on Sunday at least one coach from each organization is required to attend. Each organization is responsible for any information and/or updates presented in the meetings.
The Conference USA Rowing Championship is open only to the member institutions of Conference USA (Rowing). Please contact University of Tennessee Rowing (regatta host) for more information.
