Club and high school coaches on SportsRecruits can use the tagging feature to help drive student-athlete engagement with college coaches. It also helps organize and keep your families on the right track with their college search.
SportsRecruits has every men’s and women’s NCAA Division I, Division II and Division III school in our database as well as all NAIA programs and various club athletics programs. This allows club and high school coaches to assist student-athletes in their organizations to gain exposure from college programs at every level.
Tagging allows club and high school organizations to help set realistic expectations for student-athletes’ dreams of playing college sports and which level of intercollegiate athletics they can play. We recommend having at least 15-20 schools tagged for each athlete. Tagging has a major impact on increasing the communication among your athletes and college coaches.
How to use the tagging feature from the athlete's tab:
- On your dashboard page, navigate to the "Club" tab on the toolbar
- Then, click on the "Athletes" tab on the left-hand side
- To search for an individual student-athlete's profile, enter the student-athlete's name into the search box
- Click on the student-athlete's name
- Once directed to the athlete's page, click on the "Tag Schools" tab on the left-hand side
- You will be able to either search for a specific school, or choose from a full list of schools
- Then, click "Add" to tag the school for your student-athlete
- When you tag a school, the student-athlete is notified via email or text message
How to use tagging in the school search tool:
- Once you run a school search, click on the school’s name
- On the school’s landing page, click on the “Tag Athletes” tab
- You can search for the student-athlete(s) by name or choose from the athlete listing
- Select the student-athlete(s) to tag
- Click "Done"
- Then, the student-athletes you tag will show up in the activity feed
- Most coaches like to send a message to each student-athlete they tagged a program for. Doing this lets the athlete know why they were tagged for a particular school and also helps to ease any nerves about contacting the coach.
Check how many schools have been tagged for each student-athlete:
- Navigate to the “Analytics” tab on the toolbar
- On the Stats page, click "Athlete"
