COVID UPDATE – RETURN TO ROWING

The CPGA statement of 16th Marchremains in place.

The CPGA are continuing to seek further guidance / clarification to ensure rowing can return in the safest possible manner.

We understand how frustrating it is to not be able to get back into the gig, but negative comments, especially on social media regarding the work of the CPGA or others are unhelpful and demoralising to those who are working to see a safe return. 

It is each club’s responsibility to produce risk assessments for clubhouse use, equipment/boat use and a return to rowing. This/these document(s) must be prepared and made available before any rowing activities, once the CPGA is given the go ahead.

We will keep all updated.

Please in the meantime if you have any thoughts / questions send via your club officers to secretary@cpga.co.uk

GUIDANCE FOR GETTING READY TO RETURN TO ACTIVITY – SPORT ENGLAND / CLUB MATTERS / BRITISH ROWING

There is guidance on getting ready to return to activity from Sport England / Club Matters.  
Each club has different criteria regarding housing of boats / locations of launch / storage of equipment / shared facilities etc.

The following can be found on the Covid-19 page on the CPGA website– including downloadable posters & signs from Sport England.

COUNTY TRIBUTE CHAMPIONSHIP OCTOBER 2020

With Covid19 affecting many sporting activities throughout this year, this is unfortunately another event that will not be taking place in 2020.

We would like to thank MountBatten Watersports Centre making the venue available for the event and we do look forward to working with them in future years.

As we are unaware what the guidance will be regarding a return to competitive rowing at this stage, we have sadly made the decision.

REACTIVATE 

ReActivate as mentioned a few weeks ago.

This is a free online training package that can lead to a digital certificate that can be upgraded to a recognised qualification.

Take a look and register as individuals, if interested.

Please remember that there were changes to the format of the 2020 Rowing Register, follow the link and download the doc – Insert-Club Name – CPGA Rowing Reg March 2020

There are still some clubs with outstanding rowing registers due for March. See table below.
