Entries close tonight: Inter-club W12 entries for Nationals 2015 (W12 made up by paddlers from 2 clubs)

Please note that Waka Ama NZ has advised a change to the rules regarding W12 teams that are formed between two clubs.

The new policy (see rule 21.7 in the Waka Ama NZ race rules) is as follows:

W12 crews can be made up of competitors from up to two clubs from the same region, but only in the following divisions:

  • Midget
  • Intermediate
  • Senior Master
  • Golden Master
  • Master 70

This rule only applies where a club does not have sufficient paddlers to form their own, stand-alone, W12 crews in those age categories.
A WT12 crew made up of 2 clubs may be a combination of any number of paddlers from those two clubs. They must satisfy all other rules as specified in the race rule document.

The key change is that this rule now only applies to some divisions, not all. For example, clubs can no longer combine in the Premier division.

If your club wishes to combine with another club in the above divisions, please take note of the following:
