Corresponding With The College Coach

Posted by CoachHouser on May 9, 2010 6:44:49 AM

Readers:


In 2009, I had a wonderful club team.  They were #1 ranked in our region the entire year, then went on to win our region bid tournament, and thus qualify for Junior Nationals in Miami.  Well, one of our liberos has been talking about corresponding with some college coaches.  She texted me, "I don't know what to email to a coach."  I told her that I'd send her a sample.  If you wish, you can use this as well.

Maybe this is too long.  Maybe you don't need the class & GPA stuff.  But if it's good, I'd include it.  If your GPA is really good, I really recommend you include it.
Let me know what you think.
