Team Registration

Be a part of the 2014 Sixth Annual IUPUI Regatta presented by Herff Jones

Each year, hundreds of paddlers race down the canal for IUPUI’s largest student-run event – the IUPUI Regatta presented by Herff Jones.  IUPUI Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni are invited to form teams of four with up to two handlers/alternative paddlers to compete in the field of 112 teams. Registration will open August 18th.  Team sponsors will be invited to register their sponsor team on August 11, a full week before the general public. 

The 2014 IUPUI Regatta Official Race Packet is now available and details the rules for this year’s event.  Review these carefully as the race has changed.

New in 2014

Refer to the Official Race Packet for details on these and other changes for 2014.

  • Students, faculty, and staff are subject to any applicable Campus and University Code of Conducts while participating in any aspect of the Regatta.
  • Practice Sessions require a separate waiver besides the Race Day waiver.
  • There will no longer be a time penalty for a canoe crashing into the side of the canal.
  • Team Information

    Eligible teams will have the option of registering their team as one of the following three categories:

  • All-women’s team – a team made of individuals who identify as females
  • All-men’s team – a team made of individuals who identify as males
  • Co-ed team – a mixed team with any combination of genders (at least one female or male member must be a rower.)
  • Each team will consist of 4 rowers, and up to 2 handlers/alternate rowers. Teams are strongly encouraged to register their alternate paddlers at the time of initial registration. These individuals must meet the same eligibility requirements as your paddlers and be ready to step in should a paddler need to remove him/herself from the competition.
