Using the Contact Colleges feature, athletes can proactively reach out to schools explaining when they are interested and a good fit for their programs.
How To Contact Colleges
From either the Target Schools list or a college Team Page, athletes with FieldLevel Premium can contact up to 10 colleges every month.
From the Contact Colleges section, simply click the Contact Colleges button.
Next, use the Search Colleges tab to filter through colleges. Athletes can either add them to their Target Schools list or click on the college card.
When you click on a college card, athletes will see a Contact College button. Click this and follow the steps.
From the Target Schools list, athletes can also send messages to colleges. Simply click on the Contact College button next to any school.
Athletes can also send messages through the Recruiting Needs page by clicking on the title of individual needs.
When viewing an individual need, Premium athletes will be able to click "Contact College" to send a message to the college coaches at that program.
After writing their personal note and selecting a video to send, athletes will have a chance to preview their message before sending it. Don't worry - work is automatically saved if they don't send their message and navigate away from the page.
Once the message is sent, college coaches will receive an email notification with the athlete's information, including their personal message.
What Should Athletes Write?
College coaches only have so much time to read their messages daily, so keeping your notes concise and compelling is key.
For more detailed information on what to write to college coaches, read about what athletes should write when contacting college coaches.
Here's an example of a well-written message to a college:
How Many Colleges Can I Contact?
Athletes have 10 messages to send to college coaches every month. If athletes don't send all of their messages in a month, they roll over into the next month with a maximum limit of 30 messages in one month.
Athletes will receive 10 new messages to send every month on their billing date (the date they upgraded).
Athletes who contact colleges will also appear higher in search results for college coaches than other student-athletes who don't utilize this feature.
