A stunning sunset over Lake Purdy, January 2019
LPRA’s first Learn-to-Row class since 2019 is a wrap - and it was a blast! Thanks to members’ donation of a second quad, we were able to teach sculling - rather than beginning with sweep. All participants graduated and received an invitation to join LPRA, and most are now joining in group rowing sessions scheduled several times each week.
Our July class is full and just wrapping up!
LPRA is a member of USRowing and a member-driven 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation formed in 2013 to facilitate and promote the sport of rowing in the Greater Birmingham area.
LPRA has no staff and is operated by its elected board and member volunteers. Membership is open to individuals who pass LPRA’s rowing proficiency test and satisfy all application requirements.
LPRA offers adult Learn-to-Row classes in June and July, conducts year-round programs for member recreational and competitive rowers, and sponsors Samford University Crew.
LPRA's mission is to nurture a passion for both rowing and sculling focusing on teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, and commitment to being good environmental stewards of the Lake Purdy Reservoir.
