AJRA - Atlanta Junior Rowing Association

Our Mission

The mission of the Atlanta Junior Rowing Association remains:

•   To engage high school athletes in the Olympic sport of rowing
•   To instill and enhance the athlete’s self-esteem, self-discipline, team reliance and fitness
•   To provide a competitive, supportive, athletic experience

The Atlanta Junior Rowing Association seeks to foster personal growth among area middle/high school athletes through the sport of competitive rowing.  Participation at the developmental, novice, and varsity levels introduces athletes to the sport, to competition and ultimately to themselves as they continue to define what they are capable of achieving.  Our goal is for coxswains and rowers to go on to successful careers and personal lives influenced in no small part by the ethic, discipline, time management and goal setting skills they develop on and off the water with AJRA.  At the same time, we want our athletes to experience the deep friendships that result from shared work and sacrifice and the incredible feelings of fulfillment and fun that follow the achievement of challenging and meaningful goals.
