Nashville Juniors Rowing Association welcomes Saint Cecilia Academy to our family. Saint Cecilia Academy is one of the oldest schools in Nashville. As a single-gender school, it is the second scholastic girls team in the area – next to Harpeth Hall School. Saint Cecilia is the first school to partner with NJRA to officially start and sanction a Varsity Rowing team.
Our hope, at NJRA, is to continue growing the scholastic rowing community in Nashville under our umbrella. We can alleviate a lot of the financial, equipment, and coaching concern schools may have when starting a rowing team, which can be a massive undertaking if a school does it on their own.
Please contact Eric Gehrke (firstname.lastname@example.org) if your school has the interested athletes and platform to discuss starting a rowing program.
