Welcome to AJRA

One of the first youth rowing clubs in Georgia, AJRA is now over 240 rowers strong, the largest youth crew team in the state. AJRA has a professional coaching staff, a well-maintained fleet, and land training equipment housed in our own boathouse.

AJRA commands the respect of other youth and college teams at the biggest regattas in the country and annually qualifies boats for USRowing Youth Nationals. Additionally, AJRA is proud of its strong record of rowers recruited to prestigious universities.

Year-Round Rowing

AJRA offers opportunities for athletes of all levels to row on the Chattahoochee River during every season of the year.

FALL / SPRING ROWING

Fall season racing includes head races that are three to five kilometers long (15 to 25 minute races). Head races are timed events with each boat starting approximately 30 seconds apart, and the boat with the fastest time wins.

Spring season consists of sprint races rowed on a buoyed, eight-lane course either 1500 or 2000 meters long (6 – 8 minute race). Up to eight boats will start at the same time, and the first boat to cross the finish line wins.

WINTER CONDITIONING

Winter season is about training, conditioning and building towards the spring championship season. Practices involve indoor training on erg machines, weight training, and water training as weather allows. Winter competitions may include indoor erg events, such as the Atlanta Erg Sprints, held at Georgia Tech each year.

SUMMER PROGRAMS

While regional and national championship regattas take place in summer, we also focus on training for the next school year and introducing new rowers to the river. Warm temperatures and no school make summer a great time to row. AJRA offers many summer rowing camps at various levels, from Learn-to-Row Camps to Technical Development Camps for returning rowers. Camps provide a great way for athletes to learn or develop rowing skills within the structure of summer camp fun.
