New this year:  We are offering a Rowing Information Session for new and returning parents in conjunction with the Spring Season registration meeting on Jan. 22.  If you need tips on viewing a regatta or translating terms your rower uses, this meeting is for you! Meet outside the entrance to the Landing at either 2 pm or 3:30 pm for a brief review of rowing basics and tour of the boathouse.  The AJRA travel coordinator also will be on hand to answer questions about  spring regattas.   Later this spring, AJRA will  host a “College Rowing 101” information session–look for date, time and location to be announced soon.

Rowers and parents should plan to attend the Spring Registration Meeting on Sun., Jan. 22, at Roswell River Landing:

  • 1 pm – Returning Varsity and Novice (those rowers who participated on Varsity or Novice in Fall 2011 or Spring 2011)
  • 2:30 pm – New Varsity and Novice and New Families (e.g., New rowers, Rowers from other Rowing Clubs)
  • 4 pm – New and Returning Developmental Squad

Remember to bring a current Physician’s Fitness Verification Form for this calendar year to the meeting if you did not row in Fall Season.  A copy can be found under the “Important Info” tab.  Parents can sign up for their Volunteer position if they haven’t already done so. Come meet our coaches and purchase spirit wear and travel uniforms if needed (checks and Visa/Master Card accepted).   Fittings for Varsity uniforms will be the first week of practice.  An updated carpool roster will be posted under the “Important Info” tab once registration is complete.  Don’t miss this kick-off event for the Spring season!

Remember to Check Crew Line for Practice Cancellations

Parents and Rowers:  Remember to check the Crew Line at 404-365-2400 if you have a question about whether practice at the boathouse is cancelled.  The Crew Line is updated no later than 3:30 pm only as needed so listen for the date at the beginning of the message.  Coaches consider temperature, wind conditions, windchill factor, precipitation, and potential for lightning in determining whether land and/or water practices need to be cancelled.  Listen to the entire Crew Line message as sometimes not all squads are cancelled.   Contact your coach if you have a question but please do not leave any messages on the Crew Line.
