The Indianapolis Rowing Center provides rowing programs to underprivileged youth in the Public School system through our RowIndy Program. Our Mission is to provide rowing to youth and adults of all social and economic backgrounds. Students come to the boathouse in Eagle Creek Park for on the water rowing experience in April and May.
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.
The RowIndy Program at the Indianapolis Rowing Center is part of our Outreach efforts. RowIndy provides rowing opportunities to low income students (65-85% free/reduced-priced lunch programs) of Indianapolis Public Schools. Rowing is a great way to improve their physical fitness and overall health, in addition to improving their communication skills. The students also learn about teamwork, time management, leadership, all while exposing them to higher-education opportunities and scholarships.
