British Rowing to host SAS Ranking Points Index event on Facebook

Hear from the experts and join the live stream on the afternoon of 20 March 2019


British Rowing and SAS, the Official Analytics Partner for British Rowing, announce SAS’s naming rights to British Rowing’s Ranking Points Index on Wednesday, 20 March, which will be live-streamed on Facebook at 2.15pm.

Hosted by BBC Radio Berkshire’s Tim Dellor, a panel of experts will explain what the SAS Ranking Points Index is, why it has been developed, how it will positively impact all levels of club rowing across the country, and the role of SAS’s software and services.

The panel includes Scott Comber, Professional Services Director, SAS UK & Ireland; Annie Hairsine, British Rowing Senior Project Manager, Technology Projects and Phil Clements, Chairman of the National Competition Committee at British Rowing.  The event will be introduced by British Rowing CEO, Andy Parkinson and, following the panel discussion, the audience can also hear from Brendan Purcell, British Rowing Director of Performance on the GB Rowing Team’s preparation for this season and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

All affiliated British Rowing competitions now run under the new Competition Framework, which has been developed to help create closer, fairer and more exciting racing.

All British Rowing members who race in affiliated competitions have a Personal Ranking Index (PRI) made up of Ranking Points which are given for racing and beating crews. Ranking points are awarded for heads and regattas, and for sweep and sculling. Coxes are also awarded ranking points depending on how well their crew does.

The event will be broadcast live on British Rowing’s Facebook page from 2.15pm on 20 March, with a Q&A session from 3pm.

If you’ve got any questions relating to the SAS Ranking Points Index, you can submit them now, ahead of the Q&A session here.
