Rowing Australia has today released updated Event Requirements (ERs) for the 2016 Junior Australian Rowing Team and the 2016 U23 Australian Rowing Team.
Athletes and coaches that have already nominated for these teams or are planning to nominate (in the case of Juniors) are encouraged to read the updated Event Requirements thoroughly. Each nominating athlete and coach is responsible for reviewing and understanding the requirements to be considered for selection.
While reviewing the relevant Event Requirements, it is important to note updates in regards to On Water Benchmarks, Category Limits and Invitations to Selection Trials.
Rowing Australia’s High Performance Commission, along with the Rowing Australia Board, have approved these updates and believe the simplified requirements provide a more consistent set of ERs for perspective team members. In particular, the updated U23 Event Requirements, are now closer aligned with Senior A Event Requirements in order to provide trialling athletes with a clearer understanding of the pathway from U23s into Senior A.
