The Indianapolis Rowing Center is a member based organization that provides rowing to the Indianapolis-metro area.  There are classes for adults that have never rowed before, as well as programs for experienced, competitive adults.  

Learn to Row Classes

Are you interested in learning how to row?  IRC offers Learn to Row (LTR) classes for adults that have never rowed before.  You will learn the basic rowing technique and terminology during the course.  The focus will be in 8 person team boats.  Participants are asked to wear sneakers and form fitting clothing (baggy shorts and shirts can interfere with the seat and handles).  

The cost is $99 and registration is done online through our Classes/Camps page.  Classes are Monday's and Wednesday's each month.  After a LTR class, rowers are invited to the next step - Adult Rowing (see information below).

2017 LTR classes will begin in April.  Check back for class dates and times

Indoor (Winter) Rowing Classes

When the weather turns cold and the water freezes, the Indianapolis Rowing Center moves indoors for winter training.  This typically occurs mid-November and runs through March.  The current boathouse is not winterized, so IRC moves all of its rowing machines to another location and holds indoor classes there.  IRC pays a rental fee for this space, which is not included in the Annual Membership or Program fees.  As a result, there is a fee for winter training.  This fee covers indoor rowing classes from November through March.  

Rowing is a great total body, low impact workout, and is an awesome cross training activity for cyclists, swimmers and runners over the winter.  Come try us out, and then join us on the water in the spring!  Email jen@indyrowing.org if you are interested in a class.

Class Options:

Masters Sweep - competitive adult rowers focused on sweep rowing
Masters Sculling - competitive adult rowers focused on sculling
Adults - novice/beginner/recreational adult rowers
Intro to Indoor Rowing - a NEW class intended for rowers interested in learning how to row and get in a great workout on the indoor rowing machine.  No experience necessary, open to all ages and skill levels.

*If you are interested in the masters or adult rowing programs but are NOT an IRC member, you will be charged an additional fee of $100 to cover coaching costs for these programs.  This additional fee will be added on during registration.
