75th Annual CSSRA June 4-6 • 2021
CANCELLATION OF THE 2020 CANADIAN SECONDARY SCHOOLS ROWING ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIP REGATTA
In the present circumstances and based on the information provided to date, the Board of Directors of the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association has decided that the 75th Annual Championship Regatta which was to be held June 5th – 7th, 2020, and all associated 75th anniversary events planned to be a celebration of high school rowing, are hereby cancelled. This Championship Regatta will not be held at a future date this year. The 75th Annual Championship Regatta will be held June 4th -6th, 2021. This decision was made following extensive review and as part of the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association role in society’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Coronavirus.
We have not taken this decision lightly. However, our decision to cancel the 2020 Championship Regatta was made to safeguard the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, school administrators, umpires, families in our rowing community, and all our hundreds of valued volunteers involved in the staging and running of our Championship Regatta.
We encourage all in the rowing family to adhere to Government requirements on physical distancing and guidance on good hygiene during this difficult time. This complicated situation reminds us that we are all part of a broader society with a responsibility to look out for one another. That is what the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association will continue to do, and we are grateful for your understanding.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you at the greatest High School Championship Regatta next year, June 4th – 6th, 2021.
