Welcome to the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association website. This site is here to provide schools and school rowers with an easily accessed resource of information about schools rowing in New Zealand.

NZSSRA Board Change of Directors

The NZSSRA Board announces the retirement of Leith Menzies. Leith has been on the Board since NZSSRA was incorporated in 2012. And he was the Auckland representative on the NZSSRA Executive Committee before that.

The Board thanks Leith for the many years he has been involved with NZSSRA and wishes him good health in his retirement.

Our President, Janey Charlton, has appointed Ms Kim Dowden to replace Leith. Kim is head coach at WLTG. She is also a Board member at ARA.

Annual General Meeting Sunday 21 March, Lake Karapiro

The Annual General Meeting of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association was held at lake Karapiro on Sunday 21 March 2021 in the Don Rowlands Centre. The DRAFT Minutes for the 2021 AGM are now available online.

Some items of note arising from the AGM include:

  • Trudy Keys made a Life Member of NZSSRA.
  • Constitution updated to add some robustness to board memberships.
  • U17 Pair events added to the programme of events for Championships regattas.
  • During deliberations over remit 5 (per rower limit) enough delegates left the AGM that the the number of delegates dropped below the quorum required to consider that remit and the following 8 remits. Those items of business had to be abandoned. They will be carried forward to the next General Meeting.

The Constitution and Regulations have been updated online.

Memorial Notice Leslie Saywood

NZSSRA wishes to record the passing of Life Member Leslie Saywood. Leslie was made an NZSSRA Life Member in 2010.

Most recently based in Whanganui, Leslie had been involved in coaching (WNHS, WNCS, CAMB) and umpiring around the country. He also represented the Whanganui region on NZSSRA's old Executive Committee. But his involvement with rowing began much earlier, in the United Kingdom, as a young rower.

Leslie's legacies include getting octuple racing added to school rowing's repertoire of events. The trophy for the boys under-15 octuple is the Leslie J. Saywood Challenge Cup.

New Schools 2020/2021 season

The NZSSRA's newest member schools:

  • Crimson Global Academy [CRGA]
  • Te Kura Kaupapa Maori Horouta Wananga [HOWA]

We look forward to seeing these schools compete in regattas this season.
