This section is designed to provide some helpful information about the recruiting process for the mens' heavyweight and lightweight rowing programs at Princeton University and to answer some of the initial questions you may have.
Communication with the Princeton coaching staff and your college counseling office lies at the heart of the recruiting and application process. If you can effectively communicate with us, all of your achievements and hard work will be recognized. The Princeton coaching staff will work tirelessly in attempting to discover you, but if we do not regularly hear from you there is a risk that we will not be able to help you as effectively as possible.
This questionnaire will provide us with all the initial information that we will need to help guide you through the rest of the process.
You can begin to contact us as early as you want, although the real recruiting process will not begin until the start of your junior year.
If you have specific questions about the heavyweight or lightweight teams at Princeton or would like to contact a coach directly, please email:
- Heavyweights – Matt Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org )
- Lightweights – Bill Manning (email@example.com )
