Champion Collegiate Recruiting

High school rowers have many options available to compete at the collegiate level which include the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).

In the highly competitive world of collegiate sports, you need to set yourself apart and give yourself the best opportunity to get the attention of college coaches. Many student-athletes are talented and have the ability to play sports in college yet are never discovered thus missing out on the opportunity of playing at the next level. Here at Champion Collegiate Recruiting, we partner with you and champion your recruiting cause by displaying to college coaches the recruitable player you are. 

Don't wait to get discovered - help them discover you!

Recruiting Tip
I always looked at what other sports a junior rower was involved with. Did the rower play pee-wee football, or youth soccer, or track, or swim, or one of dozens of other sports? Did the athlete thrive in these other sports or was he/she merely average? I want to know this information in a descriptive way with a list of accomplishments. I consider myself a rowing coach who enjoyed getting an athletic resume from a recruit with these details. From there, I evaluate the athlete (as best possible) in terms of strength, agility, explosiveness, flexibility, and a variety of other factors. I want to know if she is a talented athlete overall or just happens to have won the genetic lottery for height and weight and picked up rowing in her junior year of high school. I also want to know if she loves playing sports in general. I want to know if she’s competitive. If I had to decide between two rowers with the exact same erg score and grades, I would take the one with an athletic background. Advice: Junior rowers should consider putting together a rowing resume and submit it along with their other recruiting materials to coaches. If you’re filling out an online form, detail other sports played in the notes section. Bottom line: make sure they know you’re athletic.
