What: Annapolis Junior Rowing Association (AJR) Spring Season is open to all male and female athletes in 8th through 12th grade. AJR’s focus is sweep rowing, primarily in 8+s, although we also train and race in 4+s. We also have sculling boats for training purposes. Spring practices will consist of workouts on the water and some erg training. Athletes will build strength and endurance while learning technique and teamwork.
When: Our fall season goes from March 7, 2022 to Mid-May. Regular practice times are Monday through Friday afternoons 4:30-7:00pm (6:30 3/7-3/11). See Regatta schedule below.
Orientation Meeting: March 3, 2022 6:30pm-8:30pm – Mandatory Spring Orientation Meeting for all Rowers + Parents, YMCA, 1209 Ritchie Highway, Arnold, Maryland
Location: Practices are held at Camp Woodlands, our exclusive rowing venue, located at 2744 Riva Road, Annapolis MD.
Similar to last Fall, cost is lower but does not include Regatta expenses. It does include use of equipment and Woodlands Girl Scout Camp and coaching. Coaches decide who participates in Regattas. By marking their availability in TeamSnap for Regattas, rowers agree to pay their share of Regatta Fees & Expenses that will be assessed after each race. We will do our best to give you an estimate of costs before each Regatta. Season dues are non-refundable. There is a two-week trial period for new rowers. They don’t have to commit for the entire season but are responsible to pay for those two weeks ($250).
