GOLD RIVER, Calif., May 27, 2016 - This year Quality Scales Unlimited will meet the weighing requirements of the NCAA Woman's Rowing Championships.
The NCAA National Championship is the grand stage with a chance to name the best in the nation, a chance to showcase a school's pride, putting a College team on the map.
The NCAA Division I, II and III National Woman's Rowing Championships is being hosted by the Pac-12 Conference and the Sacramento State Aquatic Center at Lake Natoma at the Nimbus Flat State Park, CA. The championship teams are composed of 22 teams from schools all over the country and this year scales will form a very important aspect of competitive rowing in ensuring a fair competition.
Quality Scales Unlimited has provided two 2'x 2' floor scales for the NCAA Championships. Each coxswain (which is the technical term used for the rower) and boat will be weighed prior to entering the competition. The scales will be placed 20' apart so they can weigh the entirety of the boat and provide formal documentation. The rower or "Coxswain" will be weighed separately from their boat. Here are the requirements per the NCAA Rowing Championship Participation Manual:
"Weigh-Ins (Boats and Coxswains) Boat (certifications) and coxswain weigh-ins … All boats must be weighed dry and prior to going on the water for the first time. The boat will be certified at a specific weight and must be brought up to the minimum weight before going out onto the water. The additional weight will be verified by the rowing officials and will need to be shown upon request after coming off the water from practice or competition. The weight of the coxswains shall be determined once each day, no less than one hour and no more than two hours before the scheduled time of the first race in which the weight is relevant. The competitor shall be weighed in dry, in racing uniform, without shoes or other foot gear." –NCAA 2016 Rowing Championship Participation Manual
