At the Jönköping University Rowing Association (JURA), you can pursue recreational rowing, competition rowing or both.
Jönköping University Rowing Association (JURA) collaborates with Jönköping Rowing Club (JRS) and gives you as a student the opportunity to develop you rowing skills under the professional coaching of experienced rowers.
Presently, some 40 Swedish and international JU students row on a regular basis.
Student rowing is gaining new ground in Sweden each year and JURA is a driving force in the development of competitions between universities. One of JURA’s long-term goals is to compete against universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard.
In Swedish university rowing, the boats are usually wider and a little larger than in regular rowing, so even novices can enter competitions.
Lake Munksjön, where JURA usually trains during the outdoor season, is often bustling with activity. We share the lake with some of Sweden’s most talented rowers. U23 world championship medallists and novices train side by side, offering a unique opportunity to learn more about the sport.
During the winter months, you can train using indoor rowing equipment, in teams or on your own.
Next year the European Universities Rowing Championship will be held at Jönköping University. More information will be posted shortly.
We met the JU rowing team just before the championship on their home turf!
