Things To Do For Men's Rowing Scholarships
There are plenty of steps you can take to make getting one of the few men's rowing scholarships easier. NCSA can help make sure that you do every little thing that you can to separate yourself from other men’s rowing recruits.
1.Develop your game plan and get evaluated by a third party
Men’s rowing coaches don’t have the budgets to travel and see a lot of recruits in person, so they rely heavily on stats and evaluations from a trusted source like NCSA. Because NCSA is a neutral third party, we provide honest answers about your skill level, and we help you set realistic goals.
2. Post your academic/athletic resume online.
Having easy and organized access to your rowing history, statistics, academic information and highlight videos makes the job much easier for college crew coaches. NCSA has the largest digital platform available to student-athletes, making you visible to hundreds of rowing coaches and programs.
3. Create a winning highlight video.
A highlight video can effectively illustrate your rowing technique. The video should show the entire crew to highlight how well you follow others. An overhead view from a bridge or elsewhere is recommended if you can get one. Make sure to show the boat at both low speed and at race speed.
4. Contact as many realistic rowing programs as you can.
There are less than 65 men's college crew programs. But you should still begin with a large list of potential schools to help ensure that the perfect fit rises to the top when the rowing recruiting process ends. Using NCSA’s digital space makes it extremely easy to get your information to dozens of prospective colleges and crew coaches.
5. Realize that it’s not a four-year decision. It’s a 40-year decision.
Selecting a college is one of the most important decisions of your life. Make an educated decision, not only as a rowing recruit, but also as a student-athlete. Input from NCSA can help match you up with a school that’s a good fit for you during the four years that you are there.
