The Scotland Rowing Team Selection Policy for the 2018 Home International Regatta taking place in Cork, Ireland, is now available to view in the Rowing for Scotland section of the website.
Athletes and coaches wishing to be considered for the team are asked to read the selection policy carefully, especially as there are a number of key changes to the policy this year. These include:
- The introduction of an ergometer standard for 2,000m which aims to help drive up performance levels across the team.
- The publication of a list of ‘athletes who remain under consideration for selection’ following the Scottish Rowing Championships as opposed to a ‘provisional crew list’ that has been the case in previous years. This allows the selectors greater flexibility when forming crews in the run up to the Home International Regatta with the aim of selecting the most competitive crew in each boat class.
- Updated requirements with respect to anti-doping education.
Athletes wishing to be considered for the Scotland Rowing Team in 2018 are required to complete the online registration by no later than Monday 12th February 2018.
All coaches interested in working with the Scotland Rowing Team should complete the coach registration process at the earliest opportunity if they have not already done so.
IMPORTANT - Athletes and coaches are also advised that this year the Home International Regatta will clash with the British Rowing Junior Championships and athletes completing the registration process will be assumed to be fully committed to achieving Scotland Rowing Team selection in 2018.
Any questions relating to the Scotland Rowing Team should be addressed to Graeme Cunningham, Scotland Rowing Team Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lee Boucher, Scottish Rowing Head of Performance Pathway (email@example.com).
