New Spring Regatta Entry System
Scottish Rowing will be using a new system for race entries for the upcoming Spring Regatta. The system uses a platform developed by Playwaze which has been specifically tailored for Scottish Rowing to be used for rowing events.
The new system will provide a consistent, user-friendly, way to make your entries and provides a number of payment options.
As with the previous entry system, clubs who wish to race at Spring Regatta will need to set up at least one administrator on the new system. Our aim is to have all admins set up prior to Spring Regatta entries opening on the 16th March and we would like to invite all clubs planning to enter to contact us at email@example.com.
When you contact us, we will set up your administrator account and offer you an opportunity to book a time for some 1-2-1 training and support.
