Involvement Opportunities

Get involved in the Regatta

There are several ways to be a part of IU Indianapolis’s homecoming event. You can apply to be on Regatta Royalty for a chance at a scholarship, sign up your pup for the dog costume contest, volunteer for academic credit, judge a contest, or be a part of the general board.

Register for the Regatta

Canoe wait to race on the canal? We sure can’t.

Race day registration will open in August 2024. Teams can be comprised of four to six people—four races and two handlers—and race in the men’s, women’s, or co-ed division. The cost to register your team is less than $200.
