Student athlete question

Hey guys, so Im a competitive squash player (national level) and I'm thinking of contacting one of the coaches at dartmouth. I was wondering, since I'm an international application to will they ask me to fly down to the states to see my ability, or would a video be fine? Do they even ask to see me play?

Any response would be great, thanks!

    Your best best would be to contact the coach (es). I am moving this to the athletic recruits forum.

    Ivy squash coaches are accustomed to international recruits; contact them and see what they say about what are the next steps.

    You should contact all of the coaches at all Ivy League schools. They all are pretty similar but you do not know who may be interested. If you have wins against any current US college players highlight that in your email. You do need to include a link to your video if you have one posted on the web, national/international ranking and academic information. If you do not get a reply make a phone call. If there are any players from your country currently playing on these teams - contact them too.
