Change to Junior trialist nomination process

  • 16 Oct 19

The Junior trialist nomination process is changing for the 2019/2020 season. 

Bringing the nomination date forward by four months than previous years will ensure Rowing NZ selectors are able to gain a more comprehensive insight into nominee's training and development over a broader period of time, and will provide athletes with increased access to Rowing NZ staff for continual feedback and assistance in their on-going development. 

Please carefully read the details below in order to meet all requirements in the nomination process.

  • Nominations close 15th November 2019. Nominations can be completed using the High Performance Nomination Form.
  • Late nominations will be accepted on the basis of good on water performances through the season.
  • Nominees must complete the following testing during the season…
    • 30min erg (at 20 rate) OR 5km erg completed between 15th November 2019 - 12th December 2019. Scores to be submitted to michele@rowingnz.kiwi by the 13th December 2019.
    • 2km erg test completed between the 1st January 2020 – 22nd February 2020. Scores to be submitted to michele@rowingnz.kiwi by 23rd February 2020.
  • Standard drag factors for testing are 110 for females and 130 for males. If you complete any of the above testing at a different drag, please make sure you include this when submitting your results.
