Last week’s webinar focused on The 4 Ways to Jumpstart Your Recruiting on FieldLevel.

Here’s a recap of the topics we covered as well as a replay of the webinar in case you missed it.

Connect with your coach references

  • Having multiple coach references connected to your profile is very helpful.
  • You can add your head coach, assistant coaches, position-specific coaches, etc.
  • Many athletes play on their high school and club teams throughout the year.
  • We encourage you to add all of your coaches and teams.
  • If your coach isn’t on FieldLevel, you can invite them through the app.

Build a complete profile

  • Completing your profile is critical part of the recruiting process.
  • Make it easy for college coaches to fully evaluate your information.
  • Show your coaches that you’re working hard and doing your part.
  • Use the Set Up Guide we provide you to add your headshot, background info, etc.
  • Be sure to add your film and academic information (GPA, SAT/ACT). Many college coaches won’t even look at a profile if it doesn’t have video and/or academic info.

Research colleges

  • With roughly 2,000 colleges offering athletic programs in the US, do your research on which schools are the best fit for you not only athletically, but academically, socially, etc.
  • The recruiting process is all about finding opportunities and keeping an open mind.
  • FieldLevel provides a college search tool to help you research schools based on location, tuition, degrees, match strength, etc.
  • You can also filter colleges based on their athletic competition level such as NCAA DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, and Junior College.
  • Doing your research ahead of time will help your coaches know where they should focus their attention and help you get in front of college coaches.

Target Schools List

  • After doing your research, you can use your Target Schools List to stay organized and on the same page with your coaches and family members.
  • This list is not permanent and will change throughout the college recruiting process.
  • As you get in contact with colleges, go on visits, and receive offers, you can use the slide bar on your Target Schools List.
  • Only your coaches can see this list. College coaches can’t see the order of your Target Schools, only if you have their program on your list.
