How to Leverage Your High School Rowing Career for College Acceptance & Scholarships

PLEASE NOTE: You can watch the separate interview with college rower Brian O’Rourke, here. We’ll be editing and uploading the corrected full episode soon.

How can a student bridge the gap between their dream of a college experience and finding the university program that fits best with their rowing and academic goals? Where do parents fit in?

In this episode, our expert panelists explain the recruiting process, explore the options at club, DI, DII and DIII programs, and talk about realistic goals and expectations.

Nobody can guarantee admission, but the high school athlete can learn how to put their best foot forward, formulate a plan, and find a school that fits academically and athletically.

PANELISTS:

  • Rowers Reach co-founders Carmen Mirochna & Fran Berlin
  • GWU rower Brian O’Rourke, formerly of ABCrew (see full interview on our YouTube channel)
  • Varsity coach Andrea Landry of Holy Cross

CREW:

Charlotte Pierce, Ready, Row! USA producer & host; Samara Jones, technical director; Laura Williams/GoodInklings, web management.
