Shane Watersports Center
Located at 6500 Indian Creek Dr. on Miami Beach, the University of Miami Rowing Team has been a fixture at the world-class Ronald W. Shane Watersports Center since its inception in 1991. The Shane Center, 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 waterway, 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 waterway is undoubtedly impressive and ideal for rowing offering a protected three-mile stretch of water that opens up onto Biscayne Bay. In addition, there are several networks of the canal linking Indian Creek to Biscayne Bay, which provide a wide variety of options for various training sessions. It is also home to a variety of marine life, including dolphins and manatees. These ideal conditions are the reason many universities, high schools, and the US Men’s National Team have chosen to come to this site for winter training.
