What is the protocol for following up with coaches regarding film they've requested and we've submitted? My D'16 followed up with emails to make sure they'd received the film, and all responded that they had and they'd get back with her when they'd reviewed it. Some of these coaches got the film six weeks ago and haven't responded with feedback. They are in season (conference play right now), so it's hard to know if they are just busy or if they didn't like what they saw.
Another coach texted D that she would watch the film on Thursday and get back with her, and we didn't hear anything Friday. Again, did this coach just get busy or did she not like D's film?
So my questions are: 1) in your experiences, will coaches respond if they have negative feedback, or do they use their silence as the negative feedback and 2) how much following up should D do? If the ball in the the coach's court, do you leave it there or do you try one more time with a request for feedback if you haven't heard anything when they said they would respond? Being in season/conference play sort of muddies the waters on how much time the coach has for recruiting.
