What We Do
Parent of Student-athlete at University of Pennsylvania
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.

As our daughter began to attract attention from Division I universities, we quickly realized that we had no idea how to manage the recruiting process for our daughter. As recruiting experts, our daughter listened to Maura and Gail, allowing us to minimize the strain during a naturally stressful period. They went out of their way to work through the logistical obstacles posed by the time zone differences (East Coast to West Coast). We could not be more pleased with the support they provided! It is remarkable to remember that just a couple of months ago, we were all feeling stress and fatigue over the recruiting process. Thank you both so much for your calm, insight, and direction, our daughter was the only one of her group accepted early decision…”
Parent of a Student-athlete at Trinity
Our family has thoroughly enjoyed using Rowers Edge to help our son apply to colleges with rowing programs. We found Gail and Maura were extremely knowledgeable about the various types of rowing programs and schools. They were quick to respond to any questions we had, and always had answers to our questions. Gail and Maura were excellent resources also, helping us to locate professionals who could assist our son with his individual needs, such as nutrition and training advice. The college search process is a difficult one, and we found that Rowers Edge helped to guide our son in exploring various options and scenarios that he might encounter during his college and rowing program search. We would highly recommend them, and could not have been happier with the individual attention we were given, and the level of knowledge and honesty that Rowers Edge provided us.
