2013: Nashville Rowing Welcomes St. Ceclia Academy to the Family

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 (eric.gehrke@gmail.com) if your school has the interested athletes and platform to discuss starting a rowing program.
