Lacrosse Recruiting Letters

Lacrosse Attack Drills

Not getting enough exposure in the lacrosse community? Then maybe you should send some lacrosse recruiting letters.

These letters let perspective coaches know that you are serious about coming to their school and want some more information.

Mail or Email?

This is a highly debated topic in recruiting letters lately. Some people say that email is the way to go, because it is instant contact.

Other people say that regular old-fashioned snail mail is the way to go, because it is more personal and traditional.

The truth is... You should do both.

I would send the (hopefully) future coach an email, while at the same time, send him regular mail.

He gets your email, which gets him interested in you, and a couple days later, he receives your mail. I like this approach because the email sparks the interest, and the regular mail seals the deal.

The email should be an introduction to the coach, about your self.

It should have:

  • Name
  • Email Address
  • Mailing Address
  • Phone Number
  • What grade you are in
  • Why you think you should play for him
  • Position
  • and anything else that you see fit

The mailing packet that you sent the coach should have:

  • Name
  • Email Address
  • Mailing Address
  • Phone Number
  • Position
  • Report Card/Transcript
  • Tape/DVD highlights of you
  • Short paper detailing why you should play for him
  • and anything else you see fit

Remember that you should both email and mail your lacrosse recruiting letters.

What if he doesn't contact me?

Coaches can't be everywhere!

You need to get off your butt, and call/email/mail the coach you want to play for.

Most coaches recruit in a very specific geographic region. If you are not in this region, then they will never hear about you.

Don't be afraid of contacting a coach that hasn't contacted you first. The best way to do this is to go to a lacrosse camp that they teach at, and introduce yourself.

In my personal experience, coaches will be impressed if you come to them and initiate conversation.

Face off

When in doubt, ask your high school coach...

Ask for Help

If it seems like you aren't getting any responses from the lacrosse recruiting letters that you send out, then maybe it is time to ask your high school lacrosse coach to help.

Lacrosse coaches usually have good contacts at the college level. Stay after practice one day, and talk to him about being recruited.

Depending on the coach, they will either be willing and eager to help, or they will act like you just put a huge weight on their shoulders.

Lets hope you have the willing and eager one...

Sending lacrosse recruiting letters to your coaches is a very important step in the recruitment process. Most of the time, it is the very first contact with the coach. It is also when you first tell the coach about your life and grades.
