Masters (Adult) Rowing
The Indianapolis Rowing Center offers Learn to Row classes for new rowers and programs for experienced rowers. IRC operates year round but the boathouse is only open during the rowing months (March-November). Classes typically begin in April and will run through October.

IRC also offers a summer rowing program for collegiate and open class rowers. It is aimed primarily at college rowers looking to improve fitness and technique over the summer. We will be competing at summer regattas if there is sufficient interest.
Junior (High School) Rowing
The Indianapolis Rowing Center junior program is a rowing club for middle-school and high-school athletes grades 7-12. We are a US Rowing registered club drawing athletes from nearly 20 Indianapolis area schools. The program runs year round with racing being held in the fall and spring and training camps in winter and summer.
During the summer the junior program also holds our Novice Summer Rowing Camp. Accepting youth as young as 12, this is a great way to experience rowing in a more relaxed atmosphere or to get a head start on your first racing season.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, IRC is committed to making the sport of rowing accessible to all interested individuals. As part of this mission, IRC does provide financial assistance.

The Indianapolis Rowing Center is proud to offer rowing to the physically challenged individuals in the Indianapolis community. IRC has acquired adaptive equipment through a Christopher Reeve Foundation grant allowing us to teach on the indoor rowing machines and then provide on-the-water rowing opportunities.

Rowing exposes the students to higher education opportunities and scholarships at the collegiate level. Rowing also provides the opportunity to improve their physical fitness and communication, while emphasizing teamwork.
