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.

Client Testimonials

Praise for Rower's Edge

Our family engaged Rower’s Edge to advise us in connection with our daughter’s college application process in the hope of her being recruited as a coxswain at a top 20 college. Although our daughter is the youngest of four children, we had never encountered the issues and protocols for athletic recruitment and didn’t have any basis for planning and executing a successful college application strategy designed to help our daughter be recruited to the college of her choice. We weren’t even sure what the “college of her choice” ought to be. Gail and her partner were professional in every respect. They are experts in navigating through the process, kept us as parents informed and (mostly) calm, helped our daughter develop a rower’s resume, instructed us regarding college visits, reviewed and guided communications with coaches, assisted in selecting summer rowing camps and clubs to help improve her technique, discussed with us rowing programs of various universities to refine selection criteria and pretty much everything else that popped up or was relevant in being successful.

We have the highest regard for Rower’s Edge’s integrity, their ability to keep all matters confidential and, ultimately, helping us achieve the outcome we had aspired to. We recommend Rower’s Edge without reservation and without hesitation.

 

 

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.

 

 

Praise for Rower's Edge

I would like to thank Rower’s Edge for their support. The investment has been worth it. I am impressed with their quick turn around on questions and helping us through some anxious moments. Rower’s Edge is especially valuable when recruiting goes into high gear. I would definitely recommend Rower’s Edge to any rowing parent.
