Pre-notification required for Ruataniwha Training Camps

With the rowing season well underway, we look forward to hosting clubs and schools at the Meridian Rowing Centre over the summer period. Given the ongoing Covid-19 Alert Level 2 environment that we are working within, SIR requires all teams to pre-notify their intention to train at Lake Ruataniwha. This is to ensure that an adequate number of zones and associated facilities (e.g. toilets) can be set up prior to your arrival which will allow everyone to train safely under Alert Level 2. An amenity fee may need to be charged to cover the costs of providing this additional infrastructure (up to $5 per athlete per day). SIR will confirm this with teams in advance.

Teams undertaking training camps at the Meridian Rowing Centre MUST submit a Training Notification form three weeks prior to your arrival for camp (i.e. due 19th November for teams training for the week following Otago Champs). Any teams that have not pre-notified SIR will not have space allocated and will not have access to the course. 

The form and relevant safety information can be found at the link below:
