Lake Purdy Rowing Association

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.
