Learn to Row This Summer with AJRA!

For Summer 2017, Atlanta Junior Rowing Association will have six sessions of Learn-to-Row camps available for interested students. No experience is necessary to get started with the ultimate team sport! Campers will learn the basics of land training, and spend most of their days at the river out in racing shells.
