The boats participating in the National Championships Regatta (Nationals) are determined by the results of the state finals:Ted Phoenix Regatta for lower boats and VASRA Championships for the upper boats. The arrangements for the qualifying rowers, coxswains, and alternates are made by the TJ team travel coordinator

The Nationals venue is not fixed.  The 2015 regatta will be held at Copper River in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  Additional information about Nationals can be found at

Which rowers and boats will compete in these events is determined by the coaches and the success of the team during the season. Participating rowers pay a fee to cover transportation, room and board. Information on the travel costs for the rowers will be communicated three to four weeks before the events.

Parents of competing rowers must make their own travel arrangements. The TJ Crew Travel Coordinator will block a number of rooms for parents at a hotel in the vicinity of the regatta. The TJ Crew bus will shuttle parents and rowers between hotel and venue.
