As a college coach, you have access to every student-athlete in the SportsRecruits database. Our search tool provides you with an efficient way to look for student-athletes, club organizations, and high schools who fit your athletic and college admissions criteria.
How to Filter Student-Athletes
Login into your SportsRecruits account. Once you are logged in, every student-athlete in your sport will populate in the “Discover Tab”. If you need help logging into your SportsRecruits account contact email@example.com.
Each student-athlete has a title card with essential information, such as their:
- Grad year
- Club and/or high school team
- Available video
Directly on your Recruits Search page, you can search for prospective student-athletes based on certain criteria. There are several filters to choose from on the left side of your page.
Utilize the checkboxes to search for uncommitted student-athletes (this checkbox will automatically be clicked when you log on).
If you want to look at student-athletes with video on their profile, click the checkbox next to “Video”.
If you want to clear your filters or take one away, simply un-click the boxes of the specific field.
After you have selected your specific filters, the student-athletes who fit those specific criteria will appear on the discover page.

How to Search Student-Athletes for Academic Criteria
To search for a student-athlete based on certain academic criteria, click the drop-down menu on the left next to “Academic”. Here you are able to search for student-athletes based on their academic level.
The Academic levels have 4 tiers:
