Learn To Row with AJR

Coaches at Annapolis Junior Rowing offer Learn-to-Row instruction all year round, whether it’s during the Fall or Spring Season or Winter training as a member of the team or during Learn-to-Row Sessions in the Summer.  AJR Coaches have a wealth of knowledge and experience and help new rowers master the sport through conditioning workouts, erg instruction and on-the-water training.



2020 SUMMER LEARN-TO-ROW SESSIONS for 8th-12th Graders

What:  As a part of AJR’s Summer Season, AJR offers an opportunity to potential athletes to learn the sport of rowing.  Spend time with current AJR athletes on the water and on land learning boat handling and rowing technique, general conditioning on the ergometer (rowing machine), and land-based workouts.  End the week with a short race to test your rowing skill!
