Winter Indoor Rowing

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 if you are interested in a class.

Class Options:

Competitive Masters  - adult rowers looking to get involved in competitions at the regional or national level
Recreational Masters Rowing - 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.

Recreational and Competitive Masters - $125

Family Membership for Masters Sweep & Adult Rowing - $180
