When contacting college coaches, you have the ability to recommend any student-athletes who you think would be a good fit for their program. Your message can serve as the introductory email for a student-athlete for the school of his/her dreams. You can accomplish this with the "Link To" feature. This allows you to link any of your athlete's profiles to any college coach in the country. You can even send multiple player profiles to one coach.
How to recommend athletes to College Coaches:
- On the dashboard page, click on "Messages" in the toolbar
- Click "Compose Message"
- In the "To:" Field, type in the name of the College you want to message
- Be sure to include the Club Staff members you would like CC'd on the Message
- See the video above for a visual example of this process
Sample message to send to College Coaches:
Dear Coach Williams,
I hope all has been well up on campus since we last connected. I wanted to pass along the recruiting profiles of a few of my student-athletes that I think would be a great fit for your team. There, you will be able to find the athlete’s highlight video, academic information, athletic information, and full contact information. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions about these athletes.
SportsRecruits is here to help clubs and high schools organize the recruiting process for their programs. Communicating with college coaches can be an intimidating process for a young high school student. The SportsRecruits platform allows a club or high school coach to initiate contact with a college coach on behalf of a student-athlete. Once the college coach reaches the student-athlete’s SportsRecruits profile he/she will have all of the information needed to continue the recruiting process with that individual. The student-athlete will also be alerted whenever a college coach views his/her profile, video, or an uploaded document. As a director or coach, you will be able to keep track of this information as well to hold your student-athletes accountable! Get started here!
