Number of events per student
The Schools Committee continues to make 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 recommendation advice was sought from physiologists, leading elite coaches and the NZ Secondary School Sports Council. The Schools Committee will continue to monitor the number of entries per student this season.
The entry limits are due to be confirmed after the SGM. In recent years there has been an entry limit of 2 crews per event per school; except in eights and octuples, which have had a limit of 4.
Schools must also be aware the compressed nature of this regatta means there should be no expectation any student who is entered in more than one event will have sufficient time available to compete in all of those events.
Note: as in recent years entry limits will not rise during supplementary entries, which are only limited late entries. They do not create new opportunities to enter.
NZSSSC School Team Eligibility criteria students "new" to a school
The NZSSSC School Team Eligibility criteria were last revised with effect 2018. An article about the NZSSSC School Team Eligibility criteria is available to help members assess whether or not each of their students is considered new to their school. Schools are limited to 3 "new" students in an eight and 1 "new" student in other boats ("new" students are those who've swapped schools or come from overseas and looks back over the past 2 years). There is also a limit of 2 students with an NZSSSC-issued PCRE per crew (1 in singles!).
NZSSRA's online regatta entry system will open for entries in February and entries will close a fortnight before the regatta. Member schools will be sent a notice and copy of the regatta Conditions when entries open.
Meanwhile the online regatta entry system is open for roster maintenance. Schools are strongly encouraged to log in for Roster Maintenance and tidy up their roster of students before starting entries, as doing this while making regatta entries considerably slows down the process.
Passwords for online regatta entry are held by Member Schools' Sports Coordinators (schools should contact the Manager regarding misplaced passwords.)
Entry fees for the regatta are due to be confirmed by members at the 2023 SGM.
Tent sites are ordered during the online entry process and are allocated by ballot after close of entries.
While North Island schools are competing on Lake Karāpiro for recognition as the best the North Island has to offer their South Island counterparts will be do the same thing up at the 2023 Meridian South Island Champs on Lake Ruataniwha. Keep a watch on both regattas for indicators of who may claim the top spot at Maadi!
The regatta was split into two 2-day regattas so it could be better managed within the COVID-19 Protection Framework that was in place at the time. At close of entries there were 790 students entered in the Boys Event Regatta and 866 students entered in the Girls Event Regatta. They were representing 74 schools and entered in 3993 seats in 1147 crews.
