                            BSHS Rowing Philosophy
                                  Rowing at BSHS seeks to impart to the girls a holistic approach to
                                  life - an understanding that quality of life, academic excellence
                                  and sporting excellence go hand in hand. The real value of the
                                  Rowing Programme lies not only in the opportunity to participate
                                  in a relatively injury free sport, which offers tremendous physical
                                  benefits, but also in character values such as discipline,
                                  commitment, responsibility, self sacrifice, cooperation and
                                  tolerance that are enhanced where teamwork is of the essence.


Rowing is only offered through a few select BSRA schools, however the Boatclub at BSHS has a
rich tradition of excellence. This excellence is the product of volunteers, and the efforts of girls,
parents and coaches should never be taken for granted. It is their energy, enthusiasm and support
that will improve the opportunities for State High Rowers.




Junior Rowing
Rowing differs from most other Secondary School sports in
that all girls start with little or no experience. The Junior
(Year 8) rowing program is designed to introduce girls to
the sport, to teach them basic skills and water safety, and to
allow them to experience the benefits of being part of a
rowing crew. At BSHS success in the Junior Program is
measured by the number of girls who remain in the
program. The emphasis is on learning in an enjoyable and
supportive environment.




Girls’ Rowing Meetings
 Rowing meetings are held Thursday lunchtime in room F201 during training and regatta period.
The girls are expected to attend all of these meetings so that they can get the latest information on
training, functions, newsletters, weekly awards, regattas and any unscheduled changes to the
program.
                                                                                   BSHS Handbook Page 4

                        The BSHS Rowing Program
The BSHS rowing program is based on the progressive development of rowing skills at a pace
matched by the physical development and emotional maturity of the rowers. Proficiency in the
single scull is the building block of the entire program. The key features of the program are:

Why Sculling?
BSRA rowing culminates in the Head of the River. This classic race is rowed in sweep oared eights.
Why then does the program place such emphasis on sculling? There are several good reasons;
   Health and safety – Sculling provides symmetry of repetitive movements. In muscular
      endurance sports, this addresses concerns over possible distortions in spinal development.
   Technique – Sculling provides a better environment for teaching the principles of boat
      moving, balance and rhythm.
   Responsibility – Sculling encourages the individual to take responsibility for equipment
   Thinking – Sculling encourages novices to think for themselves and to use intrinsic
      feedback
   Personal rewards – Sculling offers enhancement of expression, enjoyment and motivation.
                                                                                     BSHS Handbook Page 5

Safety
A code of conduct has been formalised and agreed to by all of the rowing community.
                                       River Bank




                                                       City
             Upstream             NO Go Zone           Cats       Downstream




                                       River Bank

!) Rowers should heed the traffic flow with particular notice paid to the “No Go Zone”. All crews
colliding within this zone will be considered to be at fault, regardless of their direction of movement.

2) Particular attention should be paid to all corners and the middle span of all bridges not to be used

3) If you are on the water before dawn or after sunset your craft must have appropriate lights

4) If you suffer from a medical condition that may jeopardise your well being in a rowing boat,
advise your coach or club captain so that adequate procedures are in place.

5) All rowers must be able to swim 200m. You must advise your coach or club captain if you can
not swim.

6) SLOW ZONES are areas that extend 100m downstream or upstream of a designated pontoon
area, where embarking crews create traffic hazards.

7) When boating, all “fixing up” should be done as close to the bank as practical, so passing crews
are not obstructed.

8) Crews being overtaken should alert the overtaking crew by shouting and moving aside as soon as
practical to avoid a collision. Stationary crews should be as close to the bank as practical, out of the
way of passing crews.

9) Crews departing or returning to a pontoon on the incorrect side of the river (due to tidal
conditions) should be on the incorrect side of the river for a minimum time and distance i.e. within
100m of the pontoon.

10) When changing direction, crews are to proceed to the opposite side of the course in the shortest
possible route and give way to ALL traffic.

11) Official competition has right of way during designated Regattas, for the length of the
competition course.
12) Offensive language is NOT acceptable at any time.
                                                                                   BSHS Handbook Page 6

                                 Boatclub Personnel
Rowing is a school activity that only flourishes when the rowers, coaches and parents all contribute
strongly. Each group plays a vital role in ensuring the enjoyment and success of the program.

Rowers                  What is expected of a BSHS ROWER
1) Do your very best
You should give every ounce of dedication to the preparations, performances and conduct expected
of you through the season
2) Represent with the best image possible
People will judge you and BSHS by what you say and do. Be courteous, considerate and dress
appropriately
3) Be part of the crew and the Boatclub
You are part of the crew and the boatclub so participate fully and contribute to the “feeling” of the
boatclub.
4) Consider yourself
The most important team member is yourself. You should take notice of everything and consider
how it affects you. At all times try to prevent problems.
5) Consider others
Such things as not hurting someone’s feelings, not disturbing their practices, being kind and
supportive etc.
6) Observe your responsibilities
Participating in rowing is a priviledgs. The time and money that others put into your sport deprives
them of things. It is your responsibility to also pay a price for their denial, inconvenience and
sacrifice.
 7) Plan everything
You should attempt to consider everything you do and plan to complete all academic and rowing
obligations to the best of your ability. You must organize and manage your time efficiently.
                        Every job is a self portrait of the person who did it.
                                Autograph your work with excellence

Leadership Captain of Boats
The Captain of Boats or a Captain and Vice Captain are elected from the student body to lead the
boatshed community for the season with a brief to coordinate the activities of the rowers. Within
each crew the stroke and coxswain assume the shared leadership role with the stroke in charge on
the land and the coxswain in charge on the water.

Crew and Boats There are four year groups involved in rowing as follows:
                               Age Groups                   Boats
                       Open (yr 11 & Yr 12)            Eights
                                                       Fours
                                                       Single Sculls
                       Year 10                         Quads
                                                       Single Scull
                       Year 9                          Quads
                                                       Single Scull
                       Year 8                          Quads
                                                       Single Scull
                                                                                    BSHS Handbook Page 7

Coaches
All the coaches at BSHS are volunteers who give up their time to help the rowers to achieve their
ambitions for the season. Their enthusiasm, expertise and energy are the lifeblood of the program.
Please do not take their contribution for granted – take the time during the season to express and
show your thanks for their selfless efforts. They are often past students or other people with a
similar passion for rowing who are trying to put something back into the sport.


Mr. Peter Hicks, as Rowing Master has the overall responsibility for girls’ rowing at Brisbane State
High School
Each age group has a coaching coordinator who is responsible for the coaches and training of the
crews
The coach is responsible for his/her crew. The coach attends all training sessions.
Contact details for coaches and coordinators are available from Mr. Peter Hicks, at Brisbane State
High School. All rowers and parents are encouraged to get contact details for their coach and to
provide them with positive support for the season.

Guest Coaches                  Several prominent coaches and rowers have offered to assist BSHS
                                by going out with crews occasionally during the season.
It is hoped to expand on this coaching roster as the season progresses and the need arises.
                                                                                   BSHS Handbook Page 8

The Rowing Subcommittee
The Rowing Sub-committee is the support group for the sport of rowing and operates under the
auspices of the BSHS Parents and Citizens Committee in accordance with the school provisions for
such groups.
Participating in the Rowing Sub – Committee Group provides an excellent opportunity for parents,
of girls and friends to develop a rewarding association with Brisbane State High School rowing and
ensure its continued success and enjoyment by the girls.

During the season, there are a number of social events, fundraising activities and regattas that rely
heavily on the Rowing Sub-Committee for their success. The Rowing Sub – Committee, in turn,
needs the active involvement of many people in order to maintain its contribution to Brisbane State
High School Rowing.

AIMS

                                                                                      BSHS Handbook Page 9

                                            Training
Training takes place at the Davies Park Precinct, Jane St on the reach know an
as Milton Reach located in front of South’s Rugby League Club. It is within
10mins walking distance of the school.
Generally the Year 8 and 9 rowers train after school and the Year 10 and Open
rowers train before school. Year 8, 9 & 10 crews train twice during the week
and on Saturday morning, while the open crews train three times during the
week and on Saturday mornings.. The number of training sessions may increase as the crews get
closer to important regattas. Each girl is expected to turn up to all training sessions. Missed training
sessions are unfair to the rest of the crew and if a girl is going to miss a training session, parents
should contact Gary Merritt or the age group coordinator.
A crew’s performance at the Head of the River is a reflection of how well it has trained during the
season. Make the most of available opportunities by:
     Being on time. Rowers need to be at the boatshed by 5.45am for morning sessions. Pick up
        time for afternoon sessions are between 5.45 and 6.00pm.
     Having the right equipment: Rowers need the correct uniform, warm clothes, sunscreen and
        water bottles.
     Participating in rowing camps: Camps for all crews are arranged for the last week of the
        mid year vacation. These camps occur after final crew selection and provide an opportunity
        for the crews to settle in quickly. Special purpose camps may also be arranged, usually for
        girls with leadership ambitions.
     Optimising coaching: Remembering that all our coaches are volunteers, reward their efforts
        by being positive, cooperative and responsible.

Uniform
All clothing will be available from the clothing shop and girls are expected to be correctly dressed
at all times. Personal items should be clearly named. There are three rowing uniforms:
Training            It is preferable if the girl train on the water in their Zoot suit. If this is not
                    possible it is requested they train in the Mroon HPE shirt, navy shorts and white
                    BSHS baseball cap. Lycra training leggings and/or long sleeve shirt.
Regattas            Navy and cerise racing zoot suit and white BSHS Baseball Cap
Travelling          School HPE uniform with school jumper or School Navy and maroon tracksuit
                    or HPE shorts and white long sleeve shirt and running shoes and white school
                    BSHS Baseball cap.

Health
Diet Rowing is a physically demanding sport and the correct diet is of enormous importance if
energy levels are to be sustained. The main requirement is large quantities of complex
carbohydrates such as fruit, vegetables and grain products i.e. rice, pasta, bread and cereals such as
porridge, weetbix, and muesli. Rowers should have snacks before and after exercise eg fruit,
sandwiches and drinks. These carbohydrate intakes and regular snacks during the day will assist in
keeping the athlete alert during class and in study times. Please note that a well – balanced breakfast
is available to the morning rowers at the shed.
Fluids A reminder that the girls need proper fluids. Please ensure that your daughter has a personal
supply of water for all training and regattas and that the container is well named.
Warm Weather Gear: As the girls season falls in winter it is recommended that girls train in the
winter leggings and training shirt. Girls will warm up quickly when training, however it is essential
that they have warm clothing (e.g. school tracksuit) for before and after training.
                                                                                     BSHS Handbook Page 10

                      Selection Policy (for Years 8, 9 & 10)
Aim
The selection policy will be purely objective, based on each individual’s sculling and ergometer
performance. This selection procedure evaluates each girl’s fitness and skill levels. It also provides
each rower with feedback on her performances and enables her to identify and work on her
weaknesses. This means that those girls, that have a desire to row in a top crew, know what has to
be done to achieve their ambition.

Selection Method
The girls are selected by their performances over 1000m on the rowing ergometer and in the single
scull. The sum of the two times produces an objective assessment of the individual performance.
The individuals are assigned to crews in the strict order of their scores. With the exception of the
first eight, girls will only row in their year group




Coxswains
Selection of coxswains will take place during Term 2 and finalised with the crews at Rowing Camp.
Prior to that, all coxswains will be expected to train with crews in that age group, on a rotation basis.
The following criteria will be used:
                      Communication skills
                      Ability to steer the boat.
                      Extent of rowing knowledge and willingness to acquire new skills.
                      Leadership qualities, including ability to take charge of the crew off the water.
                      Ability to work with the coach in developing the crew

Trial Dates
There are three selection trials for the season
Please refer to the 2010 Rowing Calendar and Weekly Newsletters for Trial Dates

Special Consideration
If because of illness, injury or extenuating circumstances an athlete is unable to meet any of the
requirements of this selection procedure, that athlete may still be considered for selection. Medical
considerations will require a certificate or other communication from a medical practitioner. Any
extenuating circumstances must be communicated to the coach of the crew and the Rowing Master
prior to selections being completed.

Poor Performance and / or Lack of Commitment
If, after the completion of crew selection, any girl (girls) slips in their commitment or performance,
a crew change will be made after consultation between the Rowing Master, the Age Group
Coordinator and the coaches of the crews concerned. Any decision to alter crew selection on the
basis of poor performance and / or lack of commitment will not be made lightly. The Rowing
Master will have the final say on crew selection due to injury, illness, equipment failure or any
other situation where discretion is required.
                                                                                    BSHS Handbook Page 11

                                     Rowing Camps
An optional sculling camp is held at
Maroochydore at the end of the Easter holiday
break (Wed 7th – Sun 11th ) for ambitious rowers
who will take on leadership roles during the
season.

Prior to the start of Term 3, a rowing camp will be held at Lake Kurwongbah, Petrie (July 3rd – 10th)
for the entire BSHS Girls Rowing Team. This camp includes the final selection trials and provides
an essential foundation for crew development and harmony prior to the regatta season.
More details pertaining to these camps will be issued once the arrangements are completed. These
camps are essential for the rower’s preparation and all rowers are expected to attend.

The Head of The River trophy, “Grummitt Family Cup’, is awarded to the
Open 1st VIII winning crew. The “Brisbane Schoolgirl’s Rowing
Association Aggregate Cup” is awarded to the school with the best overall
performance. Points are allocated to every crew which races in the first
four divisions. A crew which races and finishes last has benefited a school
more than not competing at all. The “Brisbane Schoolgirl’s Rowing
Association Percentage Cup” is presented to the school with the largest
number of points per head of school population. The aggregate points total
is divided by the number of year 8 to 12 female students at the school.
This trophy is designed to encourage small schools that may not have the depth of talent to
challenge for the Aggregate Cup.

                                           Regattas

Venues
Most BSRA Regattas (and the Head of the River) will take place at Lake Kawana. This year one
regatta will be held on the Gold Coast (1st August, 2009) but the venue has not been finalised at the
time of print.
Lake Kawana is on the Sunshine Coast near Caloundra. From Brisbane take the Bruce Highway
north towards the Sunshine coast and exit at the Sunshine Motorway. Take the Kawana exit into
Kawana Way and follow on for just over 5km. Turn left into Main Drive and then right into
Sportsmans Parade where you will see the course and finishing tower. The course is right along side
Quad Park and Kawana Waters High School. Allow at least 75min from Brisbane.

Transport
The girls travel to and from Kawana, and other locations in travelling uniform It is necessary for all
the girls to travel back to the boatshed so they can assist with the unloading and storing of boats.
We ask for your patience regarding the pck up time – although the school endeavours to meet the
published schedule, delays can happen!

On the Friday preceding a regatta, the girls are expected to assist with the loading of boats before
school and again please allow for some flexibility in the drop off time.

What to look for in rowing races
Rowing is a sport which, when done well, looks fluent and easy. It is difficult for the spectator who
has never rowed to imagine the exertion and technical concentration required to win races. The
crews that are successful will also look good and move the boat apparently with minimum effort.
What you will notice is:
     Smooth rhythm and good synchronization
     Rowers who sit tall in the boat without rolling heads and shoulders
     Oars that enter and exit the water in unison with minimum splashing
     Stroke rates will be high at the start of a race (over 40 strokes per minute) settling to the low
       30s in the middle of the race before increasing again towards the finish.
     Run and balance of the boat should be smooth. The amount of run between the strokes
       indicates the efficiency of the crew.
     Rowing is a team sport and if one person stands out, then the crew is not at its optimum.
       In the concluding stages of a race, concentration is essential and poor discipline leads to
        errors – most noticeably in poor bladework.
Final tip – Bring binoculars because the real tactics often take place early in the race.

                                    Rowing Glossary
Boats                   Eight different types of boats are used in international rowing and these are
                        shown below. Four of these are used in BSRA schoolgirl rowing. These are
                        the single scull, coxed quad, coxed four and coxed eight.
Bow                     Front of boat. Can also refer to left side of boat.
Bowman                  Person in the seat closest to the bow.
Button                  Collar on the oar that stops it slipping through the oarlock
Catch                   The start of the stroke where the blade “catches” the water. Body is fully
                        forward, arms outstretched.
Coxswain (cox)          Helmsman of boat.
Crab                    Occurs when the blade is “caught” in the water due to the angle of the blade
                        and the speed at which the boat is moving. May also lead to a speedy exit
                        from the boat. Not recommended by coaches.
Ergometer               Rowing machine that closely simulates the rowing stroke.
Feathering              The “rolling” wrist action, which releases the oar from the water at the
                        finish of the stroke. The blade in thus turned parallel to thw water.
Finish                  The “finish” of the stroke, legs straight, arms at chest.

Rate / Rating           The number of strokes per minute being rowed by a crew or sculler.
Recovery                The part of the stroke cycle in which the oar is out of the water and returned
                        to the position for the drive.
Rigger                  A system of struts bolted onto the side of a boat. It contains a rotating gate
                        in which an oar is held.
Rowing                  A sport practised in rowing boats where participants perversely awake
                        before dawn and run to training, where they spend one or two hours sitting
                        on a hard wooden seat and pull on oars to such a level as to cause their
                        bodies to go into oxygen debt, resulting in the formation of lactic acid in
                        their blood that cases substantial pain and discomfort in all major muscle
                        groups. This activity is usually performed twice a day in the name of ‘fun’
                        and is conducted under the demonic supervision of a person called the
                        ‘coach’ with the help of his/her trained servant named the ‘Coxswain’.

Boats
Rowing is separated into two main categories, sweep rowing and sculling.
Sweep rowing involves each crew member using one oar with both hands. It is called sweep
because the rower’s whole body sweeps through an arc while taking the stroke.
Sculling involves each crew member using two smaller oars, one in each hand.
Each category of rowing is then separated into several different classes of boat.


       Single Scull (1X)           Double Scull (2X)             Quad Scull (4X+) or (4X)
                                                                 (may be coxed or coxless)
                                                                 (coxed for schoolgirls)




       Pair (2+) or (2-)             Four (4+) or (4-)                                 Eight
       (may be coxed or coxless)     (may be coxed or coxless)
