College Soccer Email Inquiry|
SCHOLARSHIP ATHLETE INQUIRY
Step One: Look at the website for the schools you are interested in. Many schools have prospective recruit questionnaires that you need to fill out first, in conjunction with sending an email to the coach. For schools that list an assistant, you should also CC them on your email.
Step Two: Your email can read like this:

My High School coach (INSERT HS COACH’S NAME, CGSA COACH, OR CGSA COLLEGE COUNSELOR) has encouraged me to start my college search by recommending your school to me.

I would very much appreciate any further information on both your school and your (INSERT SPORT) program, as well as any visit/try-out dates.

Thank you for your time,
*If there is a particular program of study or aspect of the school you are interested in you want to mention that as well. This shows how interested you may be in the school as well as the team, making you an even better candidate.
