In the interest of managing valuable resources, ensuring that competitive boats which will perform up to the standard of TC Crew and ensuring that there is a transparent standard, the following guidelines have been adopted.
Qualifying for Stotesbury, Nationals and Canada for Girl's and Boy's Boats
Individual boats must place top 3 at States - top 2 for Freshmen Boys.
*1V8 must qualify for to permit teams to enter a 2V8
*in the event that VASRA does not hold a Light 8 event the teams will race 1V, 2V, 3V (or coaches' discretion) in progression of boat speed (not by team naming convention) per VASRA rules. For the boat in the 3V event, it must have proven speed during the regular racing season (coaches rule of thumb is no more than 10-15 seconds behind the 1V8 in a 1500 meter race).
