    Just a question but how long does it normally take for college coaches to respond to the recruiting forms they have on their website or direct emails and also how should i get in contact with a coach if they dont respond to email or phone
    calls? Thanks

    It can take longer in the summer than the fall since most coaches are recruiting off campus pretty heavily.

    However, I'd you have called and emailed the correct person...might want to move on to school B.

    thanks! will colleges always get back to you if you complete the form or will they skip over some?

    Many college coaches are away for the summer doing various recruiting projects and/or running camps. I would email or call directly. Many programs, even ones that appear to be good programs, have part-time coaches who do not work at the school over the summer months. Sometimes the online recruiting forms may not be sending the information correctly to the coach. If all that fails, it may say something about the coach him/herself or the program in general. It may say that the coach really isn't interested.
