The previous dock was built by coaches and rowers in the fall of 2000, and after almost twenty years of service, it was retired out of the Chattahoochee River. AJRA is thrilled to announce the construction and installation of a brand new dock, completed in August 2018, which is an exciting upgrade to our facility. The new dock allows for multiple shells to launch at once, enabling rowers to spend more time out on the water with more efficiency at the start and end of practice. With permit and construction expenses, the total cost to AJRA is approximately $140,000.
AJRA is a parent-driven organization, from the volunteers who serve as our Board of Directors, through to each volunteer that fills a spot to make regattas run smoothly for the rowers. Because of the numbers and complex logistics, AJRA needs every family to contribute. Volunteering gives parents an opportunity to meet each other, develop an appreciation for how hard the athletes and their coaches work every day, and have fun.
Requirements: Each family must volunteer 4 hours minimum per season, per competitive rower.
Management: AJRA uses SignUp Genius to publish volunteer job descriptions and assignments. Access the AJRA SignUp Genius account here, or on the home page.
