To ensure that college coaches can initiate conversations with coaches and athletes quickly and easily, we provide them the ability to send private, direct messages to both.

Coach Messaging

As a college coach on FieldLevel, you can message any coach on the network whether or not you are connected to them. If you are interested in an athlete, you can start a private chat with his/her coach to learn more. These messages are private and can only be read by you and the coach you're messaging.

To message a coach directly, click on an athlete's profile and follow these steps;

  • Click on Discuss Athlete on the right-hand side of the profile. 

  • This will start a private, one-on-one conversation with that coach.

You can access all of your messages by clicking on the Messages icon located on the top right-hand side of your Dashboard.

A promoting coach can initiate a conversation with a recruiting coach by promoting a player to that coach. If the recruiting coach responds, then a conversation will be opened between the coaches.

Coaches can view their message threads by clicking the mail icon on their top toolbar.

Athlete Messaging

We understand the importance of coaches being able to start conversations directly with athletes and have provided you that ability on FieldLevel. College coaches can contact any athlete on their My Recruits List by sending them a message. 

Remember that to add athletes to your My Recruits List, and their coaches will need to release their complete profiles. This process ensures coaches are included in the recruiting process to help them understand which colleges are interested in their athletes.

Once athletes are added to your My Recruits List, you can message athletes by clicking on the Direct Message icon located on the bottom left-hand side of the athlete's profile.
