Each of your players can build out a list of colleges they are interested in called a Target Schools List. This list should contain a variety of colleges and will change throughout the recruiting process.
To help you and your athletes target the right schools, you can use the College Search Tool to research schools based on specific criteria. Furthermore, you can suggest colleges for your athletes to add to their Target Schools Lists.
College Search Tool
You and your athletes can research information on schools all over the country including:
- School Type (Public/Private)
- Competition Level (DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, Junior College)
- School Size
- Area of Study (Business, Communication, etc.)
You can send your athletes suggestions on which colleges to add to their Target Schools List. Your athletes will receive your suggestions via direct message on FieldLevel.
To suggest a school for your athlete to target, click into your roster on the right hand side of your homepage dashboard. Click the athlete's name to open their profile and choose the "Colleges" tab at the top of their page.
Promote Players From Target Schools Lists
As a coach, you can see each of your player's Target Schools List. For each school on the list, we display the:
- School Name (Division)
- Coach Name with Connection Status
- Last Time Promoted
From the Target School list, you can promote your athletes to any college coach with whom you're connected. Not only does this help you vet each of your player's targets, but also helps your players get more views from college coaches.

Public profiles are beneficial to both you and your athletes. As a coach, using your athlete's public profiles will allow you to easily share information with coaches outside of FieldLevel through email, text, or social media. This allows you to share your athlete's profile to targeted schools that might not be on FieldLevel.
