Fall season is here and now is the time to start sending your emails to schools. Following Labor Day coaches are preparing to get out and start recruiting for fall. It is tough for them right now because they are not only balancing their own programs and fall ball, but some of the restrictions they have on them due to Covid makes it hard to recruit. That’s why we will continue to utilize video and metrics in your recruiting. This email is basically a way of you expressing interest and creating a paper trail so that they know you are responsible and mature in this process.

Couple notes about the email template below:
1. Make sure you change the parts that are in all caps to the appropriate information for that school. This template makes sending email quick for you, but sometimes we can rush and make silly mistakes. Triple check your information before pressing send!!

2. The video link is for your performance video we created. If you have another video you want to post DON’T! We will use that in follow up emails. Gives an excuse to write back in the event they don’t respond.

3. Send from your email – not mom or dads.

4. Send these out around 10am on Tuesday or Wednesday this week.

5. You can add all of the coaches on the coaching staff to the same email, but address it to ONLY the head coach. For instance if you email Bentley University you can send the email to coaches DeFelice, Hill, and Loftus, but when you address the email it will only read: Dear Coach DeFelice

If you have ANY questions let me know! This includes not being sure if you should send specific information or if how you wrote it is ok.

If you have not had a back and forth (First time email OR coach never responded):

Dear Coach XXXXXX,

I hope this email finds you well. As the fall season is approaching I wanted to take a minute to reach out to you and express my interest as a potential student-athlete in  XXXXXX College/University.  Your program really sticks out to me as a potential fit from both an academic and athletic standpoint. My family and I would love to come visit XXXXXX College/University and hopefully have the opportunity to meet with you in person.

I am a going into my UPCOMING GRADE year at XXXXX High School in CITY, STATE, and I have been working hard to prepare myself for the upcoming fall baseball season.  My primary position is XXXXXX and I have been pushing myself to become stronger mechanically and physically.  This fall I will be playing for the CLUB TEAM. IF YOU HAVE A STANDOUT ATHLETIC ACHIEVEMENT THIS PAST SUMMER THEN ADD IT HERE (ex: Last week/month I threw 4 shutout innings OR went 3 for 3 with 2 doubles at XXXXX tournament). Academically I have pushed myself in the classroom and currently have a CUMULATIVE GPA. I (will be taking the STANDARDIZED TEST in MONTH) OR (recently scored XXXX on my STANDARDIZED TEST). IF YOU HAD A STANDOUT ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT THIS PAST ACADEMIC YEAR THEN ADD IT HERE.

Thank you very much for your time. Below you will see a link to my most recent performance video. Also below is my fall schedule. I look forward to hearing from you and I hope to have a chance to meet you in the near future.
