When you contact a college coach, you need to include a profile page that gives that coach a quick glimpse into who you are as a player and a student. This is an important part of making that great first impression.
It should be just one page long. Still, it needs to include all the important information you want that college coach to have. But at least your:
Coach’s names and contact information
Academic information – GPA, Test scores, AP or dual credit classes and areas of interest
Recent and important highlights – All State, MVPs, major championships, awards and distinctions
Instructor names and contact information
Link to your skills video
Your profile page does not need to include:
Letters of recommendation
Every small accomplishment (overkill lessens the impact of the bigger accolades)
Ancient history, depending on your age, what you did in 10U isn’t important
