College Recruiting

A few helpful tips for players and parents:

4 weeks prior to tournament – players make a list of the college coaches they want to email, gather coach’s names and email addresses, draft up the emails

3 weeks prior to tournament – players send their first email to all the coaches with their game schedule

5 days prior to tournament – send coaches a reminder email with confirmed details


What does a coach look for in the email?

Player’s name, team, position, club team name, tournament schedule, field # you’re playing on, shirt number, uniform color, soccer profile w/ link to their video, current club and high school coach’s names and contact information, your graduation year
