Your senior year is essential in your recruiting journey. It is time to focus on realistic goals and getting in front of the right college coaches. At this point, if you have not received any interaction from college coaches you have been in contact with, it may be time to reassess the schools you are targeting. Here are a few tips to help you be successful during your senior year on FieldLevel.

Evaluate your Target Schools list

Connecting with your coach and getting feedback on your Target Schools list can help you Target the right colleges that will be a good fit for you. We recommend meeting with your coach to review your evaluation/assessment of your athletic abilities, college preferences, and academics. That way, you can make sure that you target the appropriate schools that would be a good match for you based on your athletic abilities, where you would like to be located, and your academics. This is also an excellent opportunity to add more schools to your Target Schools list. We recommend athletes target a minimum of twenty schools on FieldLevel. However, athletes can target as many schools as they would like.

  • Review your Target Schools list

  • Ask your coach for feedback on the schools you are currently Targeting

  • Add more schools to your list to keep your options open

Keep your profile up to date

College coaches can follow athletes to keep track of particular recruits they like by adding them to their "My Recruits List." When you or your coaches update your profile (i.e., GPA, Video, Performance Reports, etc.), college coaches receive notifications in their Timelines. That is why it is crucial to keep your profile up to date with your most recent videos, evaluations, and academics.

  • Make sure to add 1-2 new videos to your profile each month (i.e., game tape/highlights, workouts, training/drills, etc.)

  • Update your academics with your most recent GPA and SAT/ACT scores

  • Have your coach update your evaluation every six months as you progress



Speak with your coaches about promoting you

It's the responsibility of your coaches to promote you to their connections at college programs on FieldLevel. However, it is your responsibility to speak with your coach about promoting you as an athlete. Getting promoted by your coaches is a crucial part of the recruiting process and being successful on FieldLevel. Having your coach promote you to college coaches is a great way to get seen by the right programs. We recommend speaking with your coach about the schools you are currently targeting and asking them to promote you to your Target Schools list.

  • Review your target schools with your coach, ask for your coach's feedback

  • Ask your coach to promote you to the schools you are targeting and would be a good fit for you

  • Speak with your coach about your recruiting goals and what you can work on to achieve your goals
