This summer's two Learn-to-Row classes were a great success. Everyone actually did learn to row and also had FUN! Amazingly, rain threatened only once and, even then, the sky cleared before we launched boats. Congratulations graduates! We're looking forward to rowing with you as members!

Lake Purdy Rowing Association (LPRA) is a member of the United States Rowing Association and a 501(c)3 all-volunteer organization formed in 2013 to give people throughout Greater Birmingham the opportunity to participate in the sport of rowing. LPRA offers adult Learn-to-Row classes each summer, conducts year-round programs for member recreational and competitive masters, and sponsors Birmingham Area Youth Rowing and Samford University Crew.
LPRA's mission is to nurture a passion for both rowing and sculling in people of all ages, focusing on teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, and commitment to being good environmental stewards of the Lake Purdy Reservoir.
Masters meet for group rowing sessions every Wednesday evening from 6-8pm, every Saturday beginning at 7am, most Friday mornings. Any member is invited to come out during those times if you prefer to row when you know others will be there. Please reserve boats at

Its time to begin training for fall head races! Members who are interested in training, please contact Coach Jackie asap.
LPRA members installed a ramp to extend our new low-profile modular Connect-a-Dock further away from the shore. This is making launching much easier! Thanks to all who helped with this project.
