Junior World Rowing Championships

Junior World Rowing Championships

The World Rowing Junior Championships is an international rowing regatta organized by FISA (the International Rowing Federation). It is open to rowers who are 18 or younger by the end of the current calendar year. During Olympic years it is held at the same location as the Senior World Rowing Championships.

The first FISA Youth Regatta was held in 1967 and has been held every year since then, being raised to the status of FISA Junior Champs in 1970 and Junior World Champs in 1985.

Many European countries send athletes not up to the standard for World Championships to the Coupe de la Jeunesse.
