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

Rower’s Edge was extremely helpful to my daughter. They are knowledgeable about colleges, rowing programs, coaches, and recruiting practices.   They provide support and guidance for each phase of recruiting process.   They helped her identify schools of interest and assisted her with initial communications and meetings with coaches.  They helped her prepare for official visits and navigate the final crucial weeks of communicating her interest to coaches until the decision was made.  Athletic recruiting can be confusing and overwhelming at times.  With Rower’s Edge, my daughter felt confident that she was getting expert advice based on knowledge and years of experience.    She is thrilled to be attending her first choice school.



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.

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.
