What We Do
Parent of Student-athlete at Colby
Rower’s Edge is terrific. They demystified the process, provided great information and pointers about colleges, coaches and teams. Rower’s Edge worked directly with my son, giving feedback at every step in a supportive manner. Always available, Maura and Gail work with your son/daughter in a partnership that leads to success. I can’t recommend them enough.

Gail offered us tremendous coaching on the key elements of getting our daughter into the school of her choice. This was no easy accomplishment. She truly knows what it takes to get in, what the team and school cultures are like and how to prepare kids to shine from the beginning (initial visits and emails to coaches) through the busy summer season. She also knows how to prioritize visits and key touch points from the official visits to signing the deal. All in all I couldn’t be happier with the process and the outcome. Hiring Rower’s Edge early in the process is a must do if you want to scale up and help your athlete get into the most appropriate and competitive programs.

Junior year is jam-packed with the pressure of academic demands, college testing, erg scores, and rowing. A handful of hour-long conversations with Gail around our dining room table helped our daughter plan out the college search into manageable pieces, to see herself in context with other rowers and applicants, and to narrow in on what she wanted from a college, a rowing coach, and rowing program. That changed considerably over the year+ that she worked with Gail. Having an experienced, non-parent voice to listen to and counsel our daughter through this undertaking was invaluable. Gail was available to us by phone and email throughout the process. Gail stuck with us until we had a final decision in the regular decision round. Can’t say enough about how helpful this was.
