Olympic Hopes Regatta
Share |

The Olympic Hopes Regatta is a premier international event for athletes born in years U17 2002, U16 2003 and U15 2004. The OHR Team USA trip has evolved to gain high quality international experience as a step towards Junior Worlds and beyond. The coaches and team leadership have worked to provide a great athlete experience at the most reasonable cost possible, ensuring that athletes stay in safe, comfortable accommodations with good food and equipment.

Throughout the planning process for OHR Team USA, Safe Sport policies and procedures were utilized to provide a multitude of safety checks to ensure a healthy training and competitive environment abroad. For questions please contact National Team Coach, High Performance Director or 2019 OHR Head Coach & Team Leader.

In order to meet deadlines for team airfare, accommodation, meals, accreditation, boat rentals and uniforms it is necessary to charge an initial deposit of $500 per athlete due July 24th, 2019 to guarantee an athlete will be considered for Olympic Hopes Regatta Team and to avoid additional late fee’s. An additional $100 nonrefundable late fee will be charged for pre acceptance deposits payed after July 24, 2019 and until August 3, 2019. No further pre acceptance deposits will be accepted or additional athletes considered after August 3, 2019. Should an athlete that has paid an initial deposit subsequently not be selected for the Olympic Hopes Regatta Team, they will receive a full refund of the initial deposit. Note: Payments made by credit card will be charged an additional 3% processing fee.

Note: If an athlete is selected to the Olympic Hopes Regatta Team but then subsequently declines their spot then the initial deposit will not be refunded. Only athletes that have paid the Pre Olympic Hopes Regatta Team Deposit and have completed all the required documentation will be considered for the Olympic Hopes Regatta Team.
