Rowing is the ultimate team sport, and putting your business team together in a rowing shell will teach them what it really means to work together!
One fun day on the lake and a boatload of lessons learned - this is a teambuilding experience your employees will never forget.
LPRA experienced rowers, coaches, and coxswains will show your people basic rowing technique on shore before dividing them into two 8-person rowing shells. Team members who elect to not row will follow along in a patio party boat as the two rowing crews work their way across the lake, learning to row efficiently as a team.
At the end of the day your two crews will race! The winning crew members will take both the trophy and bragging rights.
If you are interested in giving your business or office group a great teambuilding experience, email LPRA at lakepurdyrowing.org.
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.
Members meet for group rowing sessions on Wednesday evenings and on Friday, Saturday, and and Sunday mornings beginning at 8:00am. Please reserve boats at
Loss of muscle control can occur quickly and dramatically anytime lake temperature falls below 80 degrees, and is exceedingly dangerous below 50 degrees, so it is critical to call for help!
Always carry a cell phone in a waterproof container, clipped into the boat, with the Fishing Office number (205/991-9107) programmed into your contacts.
If you flip in cold water without a launch present, immediately call the Fishing Office for a rescue and climb onto the capsized boat to get as much of your body out of the water as possible - heat loss is 25 times greater in the water.
Hypothermia is a life-threatening emergency! Any LPRA rower who exhibits any symptoms of hypothermia - intense shivering, numbness, clumsiness, confusion - must receive emergency medical treatment. Call 911 immediately!
