I have searched for 'rowing' as a term and not found anything. We are preparing to move from Chicago to NWI (Munster likely) and my DW has been a rower (later sculler) for almost 20 years. other than coming back into Chicago , any known options or recommendations in North West Indiana? Any boatclubs that do rowing ? I searched US rowing association for any clubs in Indiana and found nothing in NWI.

Thank you

As far as I know, there are no recreational rowing or sculling teams/clubs in the area and Indianapolis would be your only option in Indiana. The only places in the NWI area that I could see this is in Cedar Lake, Lakes of the Four Seasons, Hobart (Lake George) or in La Porte. However, there would not be any organized teams. Most of the water-related activities in those areas are simple boating, jet-skiing, tubing, fishing, and what I like to call "other summer related fun". In addition, most in the area could find starting a rowing/sculling team cost prohibitive (I do not know all the costs associated with the sport, but I imagine that overall it is not cheap). Most water-ways in NWI are too polluted, narrow in spots, and shallow. Parts of Deep River that runs through Lake Station would probably be okay to do rowing activities; however, it would not be easy/could be impossible to navigate to Lake George in Hobart.

Default Purdue and Culver have rowing

Not sure about adult teams but you could certainly be part of those teams as coach.

I was a rower in college and we rowed on the wabash river. Culver rows on lake maxinkuckee.
