The Indianapolis Rowing Center does not want finances to inhibit someone from rowing out on beautiful Eagle Creek Reservoir. As part of our mission, we provide rowing to youth and adults of all social and economic backgrounds. IRC offers financial assistance to be used towards our membership, programs or classes. There are 3 opportunities for financial assistance:
I. Application – a member seeking financial need can fill out an application stating their case and the Fund Development Committee decides on the amount to grant. The member will be responsible for the remaining balance and will be required to volunteer an additional 8 hours to IRC.
II. Boathouse assistant – a member not requiring financial need but looking to help out around the boathouse in exchange for a reduction in membership fees and/or program fees will be awarded this position. IRC is looking for a maximum of 3 boathouse assistants. The member will volunteer a minimum of 28 hours between April and October. This equals one hour per week. Hours can be fulfilled by completing 1-2 projects a month (given by boathouse manager), or one hour a week of general cleaning (boathouse, bathrooms, ergs, etc.) These hours can be fulfilled whenever is convenient for the member. If interested, email Jen your availability and skills (carpentry, contractor, etc.)
III. Learn to Row (LTR) assistant – a member not requiring financial need but looking to help out with learn to row classes in exchange for a reduction in membership fees and/or program fees will be awarded this position. IRC is looking for a maximum of 2 LTR assistants. Member will HAVE to be available for all of the learn to row classes, to help with set up, coaching, rowing or coxing. There is one class a month, broken into two 3 hour sessions. Most classes are scheduled for the first Monday and Wednesday of each month, beginning in April and ending in October.
