Spring 2024 Team Registration

Program: Varsity and Novice Teams

Description: Athletes in grades 9 through 12 can start on the Novice Team without any prior rowing experience. Rowers on the Novice Team will transition to the Varsity Team after one year.

Competitive sweep rowing (one oar per person) and sculling (two oars per person) is a sport that cultivates hardworking, dedicated athletes. We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming and positive team environment. Our athletes come from over 25 high schools around the Indianapolis area!

All rowers compete in USRowing-sanctioned events held at local, regional, and national regattas.

If you have a conflict and are wondering if it is something that can be accommodated, please reach out to our head coach by emailing juniorcoach@indyrowing.org.

TRY IT OUT! 2-week trial: $90 for new rowers. No Obligation after the two weeks. Use the registration link above to register for the season. You'll register for the full season, but by clicking the two week try-it box you will only be billed for the initial $90. If you decide to stay the $90 will be applied to your season balance.
