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.

Start Now!

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

We quickly learned that the rowing recruitment process must be navigated delicately and found that Rower’s Edge knew just how to guide us through it.  Gail was invaluable in explaining the process to our daughter. Gail helped her see the gaps in her resume which would need to be filled in order to become a sought after part of her top choice teams.  Furthermore, Gail helped her understand what the coaches were looking for in a recruit and which goals our daughter would need to set and achieve in order to be seen as such. Rower’s Edge knew every detail about the process of recruitment, helping our daughter prepare for each step and giving her excellent insight about each team to make the best decision for her rowing career. We highly recommend Rower’s Edge. Parent of Student-athlete at University of Southern California

Praise for Rower's Edge

Rower’s Edge was an essential part of my daughter being recruited for College. Maura and Gail’s  knowledge of colleges and their teams was most beneficial in allowing us to select the best match for our daughter’s education.  They worked with us on a step by step recruitment process so we would not get overwhelmed or discouraged.  Rower’s Edge made the daunting task of finding a college and rowing program manageable. Their personalized attention helped us find the most suitable match for our daughter’s higher education.



Praise for Rower's Edge

Our family has used Rower’s Edge for both of our rowers with great success. Our children have very different personalities, with different strengths and weaknesses as recruits. Maura helped us navigate the whole process with both of them successfully. The benefits of having someone that was so familiar with the process and the different schools was immeasurable and helped to alleviate much of our anxiety along the way. Our children appreciated having someone who could let them know what to expect, what to look for and how to handle conversations and visits with coaches. My husband and I appreciated having someone who was so knowledgeable about the recruiting process and could offer us and both our son and daughter a credible adult perspective. Rower’s Edge helped both of them achieve successful outcomes and reduced much of our tension, thereby keeping peace and harmony in our household during a very exciting but potentially stressful time.
