Happy holidays to all, we hope that you all enjoy a safe and Merry Christmas! But first we know you have some big regattas coming up and likely some rowing camps on the horizon too!
Enjoy your time on the water!
Limits on entries at School Championship Regattas in 2020
The following limits have been proposed by hosts and approved by the Schools Committee for the 2020 school regattas and the following will be applied at each event:
After the close of entries regatta control may call for supplementary entries, which are limited late entries. But only where this will not require extra races to be completed. Schools should not rely on being able to get one of these late entries.
Also please note our recommendation for number of events - students should only be entered into 2 events with the occasional student undertaking 3 events. Should students be entered in more than the recommended 2-3 entries per student, Principals will be required to sign off the entry and could be contacted directly by the Schools Committee.

Review of NZSSRA Membership Fee
This year is the four-yearly review of the school rowing membership fee. The Schools Committee will be reviewing the fee which is currently $160 per school per year should you have any feedback on the safety system please don't hesitate to contact Sonya.
Heel Restraints - Safety Check!
Any time crews hit the water, but particularly when they head out to race please ensure all rowers are checking the heel restraints! Each heel must be tied down independently and by material that is strong and in good condition (many of the cotton shoelaces deteriorate quickly! Consider using stronger nylon). The restraints are used so that a rower can get out of the boat without delay.
School Colours updating your rowsuits?
Schools are required to compete in approved colours so if you are updating your rowsuit stock please make sure the colours you have are the ones registered against your school name. If your school is new or would like to change its colours you will also need to contact Sonya at [email protected] and get your new colours approved.
School Contact Details
If your school has had changes in your sports coordinators or teachers in charge of rowing please email these new details to Sonya so we can provide your school with all the relevant information for the coming season. Any coaches who would also like to receive these updates please also send your details.
