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

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

Maura Glandorf at Rowers Edge helped our child through every step of the recruiting process from start to finish. She educated us on how the recruiting process works, gave us insight to the cultures of the different of programs, and helped us narrow down the rowing programs and colleges that were the best fit for our child. She always reminded us that the college must be a good fit academically and socially first and then to seek out the best rowing program within that framework. Maura coached our child through all of the communication with coaches, the initial and official college visits, and the acceptance of the final offer. Maura was always a phone call a way for our many questions throughout the entire process.

The official visits and offers can be extremely stressful and we could have never done it without her – or maybe if we had, our child would have had a very different result. We found Rowers Edge services invaluable. I can’t imagine how things might have turned out without them.
