The purposes of the MPSRA, according to the organization’s by-laws, are as follows:

  • Advance opportunity in the sport by supporting multiple team structures and encouraging diversity in championship regatta event categories.
  • Organize and support a process (“Championship Regattas”) by which Fall and Spring Massachusetts Public School State Champions can be determined.
  • Facilitate the sharing and dissemination of information pertinent and helpful to all teams whether start-up or established.
  • Provide competition through the Championship Regattas as an avenue for programs to develop speed and improve competitiveness in the broader world of rowing.
