LETTERS OF INTRODUCTION

You need to draft INDIVIDUAL letters / e-mails to schools - introducing yourself - and your interest in their programs. A sample letter is attached.



DO NOT just copy it verbatim, and broadcast it. There are 50 players going on trip, and the odds are good your letter will end up on the coaches desk the same day as 10 other letters from Erin Mills Players. Take the letter as a template, put in your own content, in your own words, and send it to coaches at schools you are interested in.



There are 1000 schools.................



Coaches want players who WANT to go their schools.



If we are visiting the school or playing the school, make sure that is mentioned, and if you THINK you MAY be interested, say so. Mention you are looking forward to seeing their campus, and hearing the coaches plans and interests for the team, and the players.



If the school is NEAR where we are playing, try and convince them to come see YOU play.



Do we have players at that school? Use them - talk to them - ?

TOUR 2009 QUESTIONNAIRE FOR SCHOOLS VISITED

Attached is the questionnaire each Tour participant will be expected to complete immediately after each school visit.



You will be expected to have a sturdy binder in your possession at all times.



The format will also help you do some preliminary work on the schools we plan to visit (when announced).



When you return home you will have even more follow-up work to do and your accurate and detailed notes will be essential.



The more you know about the schools before you get there, the more you will be able to focus on the important things on campus.



Do you suppose the coaches will be impressed that their visitors know A LOT about their school when you visit? Of course they will.



We’ll be discussing this more and more over the coming weeks in participant meetings.

QUESTIONSQUESTIONS

PLAYER PROFILE

Attached is a generic ADP profile that every player must complete.

You should have your profile (resume) on file whether you are selected to travel this year or not.

This is the document you will hand out to coaches who have come out to watch you anywhere you play.

We will also provide these coaches with a summary roster of everyone present.

Involve your coach as necessary for "Coach's Comments".

Be sure that your information is correct and plan on editing this regularly.

Plan on bringing not less than 30 HIGH QUALITY colour copies of your profile on the trip with you. (Consider Business Depot and photo paper).

You can also use this to send to prospect coaches via email and regular mail as you see fit.

Make sure that the profile accurately describes your skills and accomplishments.

There is no sense in overstating yourself since scouts will ultimately "see" what you have to deliver.

BUT, this is not time to be shy either so blow your own horn loudly - just be true to yourself.

You shirt number will be assigned in due course so any number for now will do.

You will not necessarily wear the number your are normally accustomed to on your own team.

You will need at least one good quality "head and shoulders" photo to replace the cartoon in the generic version.

You can add a couple of smaller action shots for colour if you have them.

For those who need photos done we can arrange a photo shoot (I'll do the pictures) at a local botanical garden for that "summer" surroundings look.

The 1990's from the team last year should all have these profiles on file already. If not, let me know and I'll forward the last version I have on file.

I also have a broad selection of on-field photography from last summer.

If you have any difficulty installing your photography into the document send me your profile and your pictures as attachments.

Remember this is your job application and spelling, grammar and overall appearance is absolutely paramount.

You can add supplements to this profile if you wish. That is your business.

Please forward your completed profile as soon as you have it completed and I will make any recommendations necessary.

Regardless, I need a copy in hand before we leave.

Have you registered to take your SAT yet?

PROFILEPROFILE

SCHOLARSHIP GUIDE


The attached document is good reading for all as you plan your post secondary education .

This is a 2004 document and a bit dated but still full of quality advice.

Just replace "soccer" where you read " running " .

The SAT section needs some revision but you have lots of time to review that. In the meantime..read, read ,read and build your vocabulary.
