The 2020 Interstate Regatta selection policy and process has now been released and is available online here.

It is the Rowing ACT Board’s intention to maximise the ACT team’s presence at the regatta. While the priority consideration for selection will be potential performance in 2020, there may also be crews targeted in 2020 for their development potential over several years.

The Rowing ACT Board aspires to having an ACT Women’s Eight competing in the 2020 Interstate Regatta for the Queen’s Cup centenary. As such we encourage people to nominate for this and other events to provide us with the largest possible talent pool to choose from.

Nominations for the state team – including coxswains and coaches – close at 5pm on Friday 18 October, 2019. Nominations can be made via the link on the Team Selection Process document.

The Regatta Sub-Committee will meet on Tuesday August 6 to finalise the regatta calendar and order of events for the 2019/20 Rowing ACT season.

Click here for the agenda and information on what is being proposed. Any comments should go to your club representative in the first instance.
