Annual General Meeting Sunday 22 March, Lake Karapiro

The Annual General Meeting of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association was held at lake Karapiro on Sunday 22 March 2015 in the Don Rowlands Centre. The DRAFT Minutes for the 2015 AGM are now available online.

Some items of note arising from the AGM include:

2015 Championships Regattas NISSC, SISSC, Maadi

Aon North Island Champs
Aon Maadi Cup
Meridian South Island Champs

Number of events per pupil

After a review of the per pupil entries at last Season's school regattas and much discussion about the health and safety of each rower, the Schools Committee makes the following recommendation:

School age rowers should only be racing 2 events at a Championships regatta. A few rowers could be considered for 3 events; none should be doing more.

In reaching the reccommendation advice was sort from physiologists, leading elite coaches and the NZ Secondary School Sports Council. The Schools Committee will continue to monitor the entry per pupil this season.
