The Annapolis Junior Rowing Association (AJR) Fall 2022 Season is open to all male and female athletes in the 8th through 12th grade. AJR’s focus is sweep rowing, primarily in 4+s and 8+s. Practices will consist of workouts on the water, erg training and land workouts (conditioning). Athletes will build strength and endurance while learning technique, teamwork and personal responsibility.
When and Where: The Fall 2022 Season will be from August 22, 2022 – November 8, 2022. Regular practice times are Monday – Friday afternoons from 4:30pm – 7:00pm at Camp Woodlands, our exclusive rowing venue, located at 2744 Riva Road, Annapolis MD.
Orientation Meeting: Wednesday, August 24, 2022 from 7-9pm at the Byzantium, 2747 Riva Rd, Annapolis, MD 21401 (Greek Church across from Camp Woodlands)
Registration Dues: $1,150 by check made out to Annapolis Junior Rowing, mailed to PO Box 6804, Annapolis, MD 21401 or brought to Orientation Meeting. Alternatively, $1,175 may be paid via AJR Venmo or AJR Paypal (includes processing fees). Registration Dues are non-refundable.
A discount of 10% of total Registration Dues is available to families registering more than one athlete. Additionally, parents may earn a partial refund of Registration Dues for significant volunteer work related to Regattas, which will be further discussed at the Orientation Meeting.
A two-week trial period is available for athletes new to AJR at a cost of $250. If a new athlete decides to continue with the Fall 2022 Season at the end of the two-week trial period, the balance of the Registration Dues ($900) will be due immediately.
Similar to recent Seasons, the Registration Dues include use of Camp Woodlands and equipment, as well as coaching, but do not include Regatta Expenses. Coaches decide who participates in Regattas. By marking their availability for Regattas in TeamSnap, parents and athletes agree to pay their share of Regatta Expenses that will be assessed after each Regatta. The amount of Regatta Expenses will depend on parents’ availability and willingness to participate (carpool and volunteer) for Regattas and will be discussed at the Orientation Meeting.
