How To Email College Coaches
Student-Athletes are often unaware of the importance of first impressions. In today’s world the first impression may come from the first initial email. Emailing college coaches effectively is extremely important in the recruiting process because this is your first chance to tell a college coach how great of a basketball or football player you are.
When sending an email to a college coach Top Prospects recommends that you:
- Use the coach’s name when writing him/her
- Always put the name of the college or university you are emailing
- Use your full name, address and telephone number, your email address
- Then name of your high school and the school’s address
- The year you expect to graduate, the position you play and your statistics, any athletic or academic awards you have won and put your coach’s contact information.
- Include SAT or ACT scores along with your GPA
- Find out what your coach would tell a college coach about you and include the statement in the email
- Provide the coach film or offer to send him film
- Thank the coach for their time
- Check the spelling and grammar carefully
- Check spelling and grammar again
- Save a copy of the email and send it out to the coach again if you don’t receive a response in a month or so.
