As a founder of the Ronald W. Shane Watersports Center, the University of Miami Rowing Team has been a fixture at the outstanding facility since its inception in 1991. The Shane Center, located in Miami Beach on the beautiful Indian Creek Waterway, includes five boat bays, an ergometer room, weight room, locker rooms, coaches offices, and function space. The Indian Creek, Biscayne Bay, and a multitude of connecting canals provide virtually limitless rowing opportunities on some of the most protected and beautiful rowing water in the country.
The Indian Creek water waterways are similarly impressive and ideal for rowing. They offer a protected three mile stretch of water that opens up onto Biscayne Bay. In addition, there are several networks of canal linking Indian Creek to Biscayne Bay, which provide wide variety of options for training sessions. It is also home to a variety of marine life, including dolphin and manatees. These ideal conditions are the reason many universities, high schools and even the US Men's National Team have chosen this site for their winter training trips.
