Dear Coach (_________),

I believe we have gotten to a point in this process where I need to tell you about what I am looking for in a collegiate opportunity. There are a few questions I have for you as I am trying to find the opportunity that will be the best fit for me. I am looking for:

  • A place to compete.
  • I want to play. When do you see me having an opportunity to earn game time? 

  • A place my family can afford. I know the tuition at ( school name here) is ( tuition amount here). That is a stretch for my family. 

  • I want to play for you coach, I need help figuring out how to make it work for myself and my family. I know that I am in a situation where I should be able to receive financial aid.
    • What are the next steps in evaluating my financial ability to attend (school name here)? I need to get an idea of what the true cost of attendance will be. 

  • A place that can help me move on. I believe I have the ability to move on and play professionally. (only include if this applies to you).
    • What does your program do to help players who are good enough to move on? 

  • A place with a great education. I have done my research on your school using Sports Thread, and know a lot of the educational details on your school, but is there anything you would like to share with me?

Thank you for all of the interest in me so far, I am very excited at the prospect of playing for you at ( school name here), I believe I am a player who can make a major impact on your program. Please let me know how you think I can fit in on some of these items, I am excited to share the results of this letter with my family in our decision making process!
