College Recruitment

There are many opportunities for athletes to continue rowing at the collegiate level and beyond. College coaches are always interested in motivated athletes that demonstrate rowing experience, good technical skills, erg scores, and qualifying academics. We are proud of the many SRC juniors who have graduated to successful collegiate rowing careers and look forward to assisting others in the process.

Our athletes are pushed, just as they are on the water, to excel in the classroom. The greater rowing schools are also some of the most outstanding in academics. As such, we make it clear to our athletes that what we teach them to value during their time with us (hard work, dedication, excellence, etc.) must be applied not just during practice hours, but in all aspects of their life as well.

We do whatever we can to help facilitate the recruitment process. In the past, our coaching staff has been available for our Juniors to help establish contact with coaches at their dream schools, give advice on how to conduct themselves throughout the recruitment process, and to help cross out and narrow down their choices in order for them to arrive at their final decision. In the end, there’s a college for everybody. Our wish, and goal, is to align our Juniors with the college that will allow them to continue to excel in all aspects of life, just as they have with us on the water.
