NCSA Reviews for Rowing from Athletes and Parents

Class of 2019 – Parent – Rowing
“So far, we are happy.  We are early in the process. Son is entering 10th grade. Starting this program has put us on the right path early in the game. I, as a non-sport playing parent, have learned a lot! I have no previous knowledge of college sports or recruiting so this is a huge learning process for me. Looking forward to working with you! Nothing is ever perfect so a 10 would be tough. Only reason you did not get a 9 was it is too early to tell.”

“As a parent I have so much going on and things fall between the cracks. Having NCSA available to me on my phone 24/7 is one thing I don't worry about. I access the site quite often to answer questions I have or to research schools. My child is now going into his JR year and I only see NCSA as being even more useful to us.”
