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.

Praise for Rower's Edge

Gail and Rower’s Edge are simply the best! Gail helped navigate my daughter through the whole complex process of recruiting with such clarity and forethought. Gail was incredibly organized about how to proceed and always knew the right questions to ask my daughter about her decision making process. We were very impressed that although Gail’s consulting was related to rowing, she approached our daughter holistically and helped her find the right path, not only with regard to rowing in college, but with regard to her overall well-being. Also, Gail was always extremely accessible to provide guidance for my daughter whether by email or phone call and her advice was consistently spot on. Gail transformed a potentially tense and confusing process into one that was much less stressful and even exciting. Gail and Rower’s Edge are invaluable!

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

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.
