cameras are not deployed.

our abilities.

STEERSPERSON
STANDARDIZATION
PRESENT PRACTICE
•
Basic Helm Accreditation – to certify The Steersperson (STP) is fit
to helm the dragon boat, especially in races
•
STP issued a lifetime validity certificate
•
Training of STP is the responsibility of each respective dragon
boat team
•
Only certified coaches & trainers can train a STP (to be declared
in the Basic Helm Accreditation registration form)
•
No prosecution of STP if involved in a dangerous occurrence
2015 AMENDMENT: NEW STEERSPERSON (NSTP)
•
As of 1st January 2015, all Newly Certified Steersperson (NSTP)
put under 1-year probation period
•
NSTP will be issued a Temporary Pass (Tpass) instead of a
Certificate
•
If NSTP involved in a dangerous occurrence or collision, during
training or race, the TPass will be revoked and NSTP required to
re-sit the Basic Helm Accreditation*
•
In a year, a NSTP candidate can only sit for two(2) Basic Helm
Accreditation course if he failed the first one
•
After 1-year from date of issue, NSTP can change the pass for
certificate for a fee of $20. This fee is on-top of the registration
fee for the Basic Helm Accreditation course
*SDBA will investigate the episode and will only judge when we
are satisfied with that a safety violation has occurred
2015 AMENDMENT: EXISTING STEERSPERSON (STP)
For STP that obtained the Basic Helm Award certificate pre-2015, no
change to status. The certificate will bear no expiry or renewal
deadline.
STP involved in dangerous occurrence, :- SDBA may prosecute
- Penalties will depend on level of severity
- Level 1 (minor): warning letter and/or administrative
charge ranging from $50 to $100, warning will be
posted on SDBA website/social media*
(3 consecutive warning letters will upgrade to Level 2)
- Level 2 (major): certificate revoked
STP will have to re-sit the Basic Helm Accreditation
and announcement made on SDAB website/social
media*
* we feel this is the only way to inform affiliates so that
you can make informed decisions to deploy the
steersperson or not
