Get fit with AJR: Winter training is to improve our athletes’ fitness and to focus on rowing technique. We will be using all that is available at the YMCA. In addition to erging we will be doing a variety of things including swimming, lifting weights, cycling, running and circuit training.

ERG SPRINTS: During the winter season our only race is the Erg Sprints in Alexandria, VA on Feb. 1, 2020. This event gives our rowers an opportunity to individually challenge themselves while representing our team. It also provides some a chance to get on the radar of college and U.S. Rowing Junior National Team coaches. AJR rowers were invited to participate in U.S. National Team High Performance and Development Camps based on their performance at Erg Sprints.
General information about and registration for the Erg Sprints can be found at www.ergsprints.com. The entry fee is not covered by the cost of winter training. Each rower must register themselves individually for this competition, All participants will also be required to have signed an online waiver through U.S. Rowing.
