Book details

The author has been coaching rowing for over 20 years, and during the past 10 years as head coach of two nationally-ranked junior programs he has successfully helped hundreds of high school rowers and their parents through the college recruiting process. He has actually coached many college coaches and recruiters and has strong relationships with most of them, so he knows what they are looking for when recruiting high school athletes. He recently helped develop a college rowing recruiting consultancy service and he is currently developing an after-school high-performance training center that is specifically geared towards helping high school athletes get recruited to row at college.

The main reason for writing this book is to help the many students and parents who need to get started and who have very little knowledge on how to proceed. We believe that after reading this eBook you will have a better understanding of the college recruitment process and we hope that it will help you make better decisions.
