The 2014 Indiana Rowing Camp caters to both beginner and experienced rowers and coxswains age 13-18. IU Head Rowing Coach Steve Peterson and his staff offer a challenging, fun, and rewarding experience where beginners learn fundamental skills and experienced athletes focus on technique development and performance. Learn why rowing is the ultimate team sport!


Total Rower Development

Commitment to excellence on and off the water is the emphasis of the Indiana Rowing Camp. Rowers are divided into groups by experience and ability with low staff-to-camper ratios for concentrated teaching. There is a strong focus on individual skills as well as a dynamic program that advances team tactics. Water sessions include attention to technique, focusing on rhythm / ratio, blade work, and catch & release positions; land sessions include physical training in addition to lessons on race tactics, nutrition, and collegiate rowing / recruiting. Daily activities include video analysis and question and answer sessions!

Specialized Coxswain Training

The coxswain is a key element of the crew and will be given specialized training with a well-rounded approach for the tactical, technical and psychological aspects of the position. The coxswain's role will be enhanced as they participate in land training activities with the rowers. We can only accept a limited number of coxswains so don't delay, register today!

We're an hour's drive from Indianapolis, two hours from Louisville, three from Cincinnati, and four from Chicago and Saint Louis.
