I am really enjoying CC as a father of a high school junior rower looking for a competitive rowing and academic environment in college. Thanks for the great information. A few questions for the community. It seems in sports such as football and basketball it is risky to base on college choice on a coach. But what do you think about rowing? It seems that coaches at established programs stay forever. Is it a good idea to base your college choices on the coach (personality, style, etc.)? Then how do you find out about the style of the coaches? Finally, my daugther would probably be interested most in an authoritative coaching style as she is looking to get the most out of her ability and highly motivated. She is a girl, interested in D1 in the northeast, possibly Ivy league academic credentials. Anyone willing to share schools that fit the bill. In other words who are the Harry Parkers in womens rowing?
