Sample Email 1
  • Hi Coach Marino!
  • I am just starting to look at colleges and would
    love to play for UCLA after highschool. I have
    watched the UCLA Women's team play and love the
    style of play. I think that my 8 years of
    training has developed my skills towards a
    similar style.
  • If you get a chance to come watch some of my
    games I would love for you to see my strong
    defensive mindset as well as my frequent head
    balls and slide tackles!

Sample Email
  • Hi Coach Marino,
  • My name is Brenda Seymour and I am very
    interested in going to and playing soccer for Cal
    Lutheran next year. Cal Lutheran looks like a
    great school, and I am especially interested in
    the Exercise Science/Sports Medicine programs.
    From what I have seen in the standings this
    season, I can tell that Cal Lutheran has a great
    soccer program, which I would very much like to
    be a part of.

  • About me I have a 4.0 GPA at Roosevelt High
    School in Seattle, and scored a 2040 on the SAT.
    This year I will win my 4-year Varsity Letter
    awards for both soccer and track. Last year I
    played for Emerald City FC '91 Green, coached by
    Jan Smisek, and now I play for Metropolitan FC
    United '91, coached by Andy and Arne Klubberud.

  • I will be playing in the Thanksgiving Starfire
    FieldTurf Cup in Tukwila, WA. Will you be there?
    If so, it would be great if you could come
