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.
The current Spring Season is underway but it may not be too late for you to start. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire. Even if it’s too late to join the sweeping season, you can always take semi-private of group sculling lessons.
