How many coaches should I be contacting during my track recruiting?

Have a list of top 25 schools. Then make three categories: reach, match and lower. Reach are schools you may not qualify for the team or compete right away, but you have ability to improve and contribute in the future. Match are schools where you are qualified for the team based on standards, you’ll probably be able to contribute to the team right away. Lower are schools you are a potential star in the program and conference. If you aren’t hearing back from schools, understand the rules and regulations. Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t heard from a coach, but try to reach out to them.
