The 2017 Indiana Rowing Camp has options for both beginner and experienced rowers and coxswains rising high school sophomores through college freshman. 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 individual performance.


Total Rower Development

Commitment to excellence on and off the water is the emphasis of the Indiana Rowing Camp. This year we offer 2 distinct camps based on level of experience. Campers in each session will be divided into groups offering low camper-to- staff 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 and release positions; land sessions include physical training in addition to lessons on race tactics, nutrition, and collegiate rowing/the recruiting process. 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. We can only accept a limited number of coxswains so don't delay, register today!


Our top-notch staff brings a variety of experiences and perspectives to make a well-rounded and valuable camp experience for you. Our coaching staff is made up of full-time professionals in the sport of rowing. We have coached in the following collegiate conferences: Atlantic Coast, Atlantic Sun, Atlantic Ten, Big East, Big Ten and Ivy League.

STEPHEN PETERSON - Head Coach Women's Rowing, Indiana University

More than 20 years as a collegiate head coach, Peterson’s passion for rowing is contagious. He is successful at guiding athletes in attaining their full potential. He is well versed in the U.S. National Team selection procedures and he has mentored 11 athletes that have gone on to earn spots on the U.S. National Team, and five who have earned medals at the World Championships and the Olympics.

He was the 2014 NCAA Division I Head Coach of the Year, and has led Indiana University to 11th place finishes at the NCAA Division I Championships in both 2014 and 2015.

As a rower, he is a 7-time U.S. National Team Rower including the 1996 U.S. Olympic Rowing Team and 1990 World Champion in the Lightweight Double Sculls. He was inducted in the US Rowing Hall Of Fame in 2007.


Experience college living on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. IU Bloomington is known as one of the five most beautiful college campuses in the nation. The city of Bloomington is nestled in the rolling hills of southern Indiana with a central location in the heart of the Midwest. Bloomington is the quintessential college town - active, friendly, intellectual, young, relaxed, and safe.

Overnight campers reside in IU’s best dormitory, Spruce Residence Hall. This air-conditioned facility is situated in the heart of campus. Practice sessions on the water take place at the newly expanded Dale England Rowing Facility, the practice and competition site for the Indiana Rowing team at Lake Lemon. An ideal rowing venue where IU has hosted Big Ten Rowing Championships on their 2000-meter race course. Bus transportation will be provided to/from the rowing center daily.


Girls entering high school sophomore to college freshman year. NCAA regulations allow high school graduates to attend camp. All Indiana Rowing camps are open to any and all entrants.


No physical examination is required, but campers should be in good physical condition and able to swim. Each camper must have a completed parental consent form on file with the camp. The form is part of both the camp online registration and this brochure. Current tetanus is required. A trainer will be available to campers each day.


The parent/guardian must provide primary insurance for their camper. The Indiana Rowing Camp provides only secondary accident/medical insurance.


Parents may be assured that all campers receive 24 hour a day supervision. We make every effort to provide a program where campers will have fun while learning. We reserve the right to send any camper home, without a refund, if she does not conduct herself in a manner that will enhance proper and safe learning, good sportsmanship and a willingness to follow directions.
