Notices and News

With recent changes to the OWNZ End of Financial Year date to 31 May, and the current requirement for us to hold our Annual General meeting no more than 3 months after this date, notice is given that the 2020 AGM will be held on Sunday 30 August at 4pm.

Due to the fact that there are no suitable competition events within the required period, this year’s meeting will be held on-line via Zoom. This will enable more members to access the meeting.

Details of the Zoom log-in, etc will be advised in due course.

NB: There are 3 Executive Group positions reaching he end of term this year, and so an election to fill these positions is required (1 of the 3 current Executive will be standing for re-election, the other 2 positions will be vacant).

The new online education programme, Clean Sport 101 will be launched next Tuesday 5 May, and will be supported by a social media campaign featuring former All Black Keven Mealamu, Paralympian Hamish McLean and Olympians Eliza McCartney and Caitlyn Ryan.

Clean Sport 101 has been designed as an introductory course for club level athletes and support personnel who are yet to receive clean sport education. 

With a focus of providing education to club level athletes, Clean Sport 101 will support clubs and sports organisations in ensuring their members are aware of their anti-doping responsibilities. Upon course completion, members will have a basic understanding of clean sport, why it is important and know where to access various resources.

Topics include the Anti-Doping Rules, potential risks to athletes including supplement use, examples of how athletes can best fuel their bodies and what a ban from sport actually means

The course is simple, easy to understand and only takes 15 minutes to complete

Athletes will login via the DFSNZ e-Learning platform so completions can be tracked
