Email Coaches

Sports Prep Academy Email Template

The email template below is just an introduction to be sent to the coaches and needs to be well written so make sure you proof read it yourself and by someone else. Also, you need to personalize it. Make it so you are talking to them and not a generic email that you are going to send to other coaches. Not too much detail and get to the point. They need to see that you have the potential to play for them and are excited to play for them. Use Basic stats and major awards. DO Not list everything.

Make sure the email you are using is professional. Example: Firstname.Lastname@googler.com

Subject Line: {full name} – {position} C/O:{graduating class} Example: Jason Guglielmone – Center/Guard C/O:1997
