What We Do


Race Plan

Rowing is a mainstream sport and college recruiting is highly competitive and can be very stressful. In order to get the process started,  we meet with the rower/coxswain and parent to create a college recruiting plan which outlines expectations and goals commensurate with rower/coxswain’s performance both academically and athletically.

Recruiting Roadmap

Rowing and coxing alone does not automatically lead to successful college recruiting results. A rower/coxswain must distinguish himself/herself in order to get noticed by college coaches. Academic and athletic performance will determine which college coaches will be interested. We understand what colleges are looking for in a student-athlete and provide the guidance necessary to find the best match for our clients.

All recruiting is personal. We understand the recruiting process at each college rowing program. We provide accurate information personalized for each client's needs and goals. We have a proven track record and are available 24/7 to successfully guide our clients through the recruiting process.

Client Testimonials

Praise for Rower's Edge

Our family has thoroughly enjoyed using Rowers Edge to help our son apply to colleges with rowing programs. We found Gail and Maura were extremely knowledgeable about the various types of rowing programs and schools. They were quick to respond to any questions we had, and always had answers to our questions. Gail and Maura were excellent resources also, helping us to locate professionals who could assist our son with his individual needs, such as nutrition and training advice. The college search process is a difficult one, and we found that Rowers Edge helped to guide our son in exploring various options and scenarios that he might  encounter during his college and rowing program search. We would highly recommend them, and could not have been happier with the individual attention we were given, and the level of knowledge and honesty that Rowers Edge provided us.


Praise for Rower's Edge

The recruiting process is not straight forward. Rower’s Edge gave us important information at critical decision making moments during the entire process. Understanding what coaches are looking for enabled my daughter to throughly prepare for her visits. Maura was instrumental in insuring communication to coaches was completed in a timely fashion. She was unfailingly supportive of our daughter and made herself available to us when we had questions. Utilizing Rower’s Edge consulting services … definitely helped my daughter to be recruited to her first choice college.

Praise for Rower's Edge

Gail and Maura scheduled calls around our availability and we were amazed at how responsive and flexible they were to our needs.  Gail’s assistance was invaluable, especially when it came to trying to figure out our son’s chances of securing a spot in one of the top three programs in which he had the greatest interest. Gail and Maura helped our son with each step in the process: from initial communication with coaches at the schools to the all important final days in  when our son had to navigate official visits and finally, multiple offers.
