    Florida Eels College Prep Agenda

     
    Note The Dean of Sylvan Learning Center will be visiting the Ft Myers Skatium on Monday September 10th at 2:34 pm. All players are required to attend this session. They are experts in this field and you should hear their presentation.

    1) College Hockey Is a process. It takes time determination and patience
    2) All players need to take SAT or ACT (and I recommend both).
    Foreign players are strongly urged to take the Tofel test as well. Tofel however is NOT and replacement or substitute for SAT or ACT testing. It is only a supplement or augmentation to reflect and demonstrate your abilities to comprehend the English language and your proficiency to understand English for college level work. 
    a) Formal Prep for test: High school, specialize schools. In person example, Sylvan Learning Centers. 
    b) Online prep classes Princeton Review Kaplan etc. Google search 
    c) Purchase Study aides Kaplan Princeton and a ½ dozen others
    d) You must spend minimum of 2-3 hours per day studying for SAT ACT. Example, One Day Math one day Language One day reading. These test have so much info. There are new versions of the test so you cannot take it for granted that you do not need a program of study. You cannot do this alone!!!!!!!
    e) Every week you must take a practice test. No ifs ands or buts
    3) Have your school go on and obtain NCAA Clearinghouse. This is Mandatory if you are going NCAA Div. 1 Men’s ice hockey
    4) High School and Part time college grades. You Need to obtain a copy of your transcripts whether you graduated or not. When you make formal application to a college you will need an official transcript sent form the college. You cannot personally send it. It must come directly from the college. It must have an official seal. Do not assume the college sent it. 50% or better colleges fail to send it on a timely basis. This can cost you admissions and financial aide. You need to verify they sent it and that the college received it. 
    5) Target schools look at multiple schools these man s for academics, right fit Hockey wise. You should identify 10 colleges 3-4 wish list 3-4 medium and 2 sure things. Then the Eels coaches will augment this list by 5+ The Eels GM will add an additional ½ dozen. This means we will start with approximately 20 colleges. 
    6) Review the extensive materials provided in this meeting
    7) Players need to send a preliminary letter to admissions department copy the college coaches. Then send a letter of interest see forms being supplied. 
    8) Start making videos and upload to YouTube. No waiting. See Hayden Haldane. He has experience making these.
    9) Bi-weekly meetings with Eels GM
    10) Write a personalize essay for colleges
    11) Review college scholarship hand books
    12) Carefully review all team app Fast web scholarship
    13) Review of info provided
    14) Obtain email addresses of each college coach you wish to target 
    15) Write formal letter to college coaches. CC with an email. But they cannot delete a letter you send them
    16) Send follow up email with videos attached

    How To Email College Coaches


     

     

    How to Email College Coaches

    How to email college coaches.
    Sending an introductory email to a college coach can get your foot in the door with a program you’re interested in and give a coach the opportunity to conduct their initial evaluation of you. However, emailing college coaches as a means to get discovered isn’t as effective as it was five years ago. Coaches are getting hundreds—if not thousands—of emails from recruits. Simply sending an email isn’t enough to get a coach’s attention. You need to create clear, concise emails with attention-grabbing subject lines to give yourself a chance at the coach opening your email, reading it and responding.

    Before you start firing off emailing college coaches across the country, there are a few specific details you need to know first. Here’s a rundown of what we’ll be covering to help you better understand how to email college coaches:

    Quick Links
    Craft a subject line
    Personalize the body of the email
    Use our email templates
    Edit your email thoroughly

    What subject line is best when emailing college coaches?
    In talking about how to email college coaches, the subject line always comes up as one of the most critical pieces of the email. Without an eye-catching subject line, a coach won’t even open your perfectly crafted email.

    To get started on writing your subject line, there’s a few key pieces of information you need to include: Your grad year, your position, state (if you’re emailing a local coach) and a piece of information that’s unique about you. Do you have a lightning fast 40-yard dash time? Are you looking at an academic-focused school that will be impressed with your ACT score? If you compete in a sport in which club teams are really important, consider adding in your club team and/or the tournament you’ll be at next. Once you determine that, take a look at just a few examples of well-crafted subject lines:

    2020 Linebacker, 6’2” 220lbs, 4.6 40yd dash
    2018 LH Pitcher, 90 MPH FB, 33 ACT
    2021 from IL, 23.25-second 50 free
    2019 Center-mid, Premier Academy, MLK Tourney schedule attached
    2019 OPP, 9'8" APP, Premier VB Academy, video attached
    Here are a few general tips to consider when creating your subject line for emailing college coaches:

    Think about what would be important to the coach. Generic subject lines like “football recruit” or “looking to play for you” and even “talented high school football prospect” are going to blend into the background of the coach’s inbox. Instead, do you have an interesting stat? Do you play a unique position? Is your height and weight important for your sport and position?
    Keep your subject line to 50 characters or less. Coaches are on the go and probably read the majority of their emails on their phone. An extremely lengthy subject line will only get cut off, so you need to maximize the space you have.
    Use numbers and stats in your subject line. We’ve hinted at this before, but including key stats in your subject line can really make an impact. Plus, numbers set your subject line apart from all the words crowding the coach’s inbox.

    What to say when emailing a college coach
    You’ve laid down the ground work, now it’s time to write the email! Think about your email like an inverted pyramid (https://www.getvero.com/resources/inverted-pyramid-method/). The top of the email is where you need to grab the coach’s attention. You can use a stat about the team that interested you or why you’d like to play for them. The next section is to give a little more information about yourself and to show the coach why you would be a good fit for their program. Here is the key information you want to be sure to include when emailing college coaches:

    Your general information: Name, graduation year, high school and club name
    Academics: GPA, test scores, if they would be important information for the coach you’re emailing
    Athletics: sports specific stats and relevant measurables
    Contact information: your phone number and email, as well as the contact information for your coaches 
    The last section should be giving them a specific next step, such as letting the coach know you will be giving them a call at a specific date and time or inviting them to come see you compete. Whatever you do, avoid sending mass, generic emails out to all the coaches you want to contact when emailing college coaches. The coach will know if you took the time to personalize your email, and it will make a difference. Coaches want to recruit players who are genuinely interested in their program—most don’t have the time and resources to recruit an athlete who is not likely to commit to their school.

    How to start an email to a college coach

    Similar to your subject line, your opening needs to be attention-grabbing. Depending on the type of school and the coach—here’s where your research comes into play—your opening will change. If you’re looking at academically-focused schools, lead with how impressed you are by their academic record when emailing the college coach. If you’re emailing a school with a winning record, point out that you’d love to be part of such a successful legacy. There are numerous reasons you would be emailing a college coach. Here are a few examples of ways to open an email:

    “I wanted to connect with you after speaking with Amber Brown, an athlete on your team. She told me about your coaching style and I believe that, based on your emphasis on work ethic and training, I would be a great fit for your program.”
    “I’ve been following your program for a while, and recently found an article about you that inspired me. I wanted to connect with you because I think that I would be a great addition to your team.”
    “In researching your program, I noticed that you will be graduating 5 seniors this year. I would love to help bridge the gap left by those departing seniors.”
    How much information do I need to include in my email to college coaches?

    This is an introductory email, so you don’t need to give the coach your whole history. Instead, tease a few key stats that you think this coach would be interested in knowing. Are you the ideal height and weight for your position? Include that. Do you have an outstanding GPA and test scores and you’re emailing an academically-focused coach? Include that. Also, make sure you include contact information for your current coaches: your club coach, high school coach, persona trainers, and anyone else that you have worked with for your sport. Then, link off to your NCSA recruiting profile where the coach can find your highlight video, all your stats and your personal statement.

    At the end of your email, tell the coach what you’re going to do next

    At the end, you want to specifically let the coach know what you’ll be doing next. If you’re planning on following up the email with a call, let them know to expect a call from you in the next few days. If you’d like to visit their campus, tell them you will give them a call to schedule a time to connect. You don’t need to use generic language like, “If you’re interested, feel free to call, email or text me.” If the coach is interested, they will contact you. Instead, tell them the next step you’re going to take, and then what they need to do in response.

    Insider tip: Turn on your “read receipt” function to see if a coach has opened our email. This feature is really helpful for athletes who are too young to be contacted by a coach yet. Read receipts will let you know if a coach has received and opened your email, so you can be sure to follow up accordingly. Learn more about how you can enable this feature for your next email.

    Sample email 1—Athletic-focused email
    Dear Coach Smith,

    I’ve been following your team for a while now, and was really impressed by your team’s performance in the championship game last year—congratulations! I wanted to connect with you because I would love to be part of this competitive team.

    My name is Jane Doe and I’m a 6’2” forward at Generic High School in Chicago, IL. I was recently honored by being been named the Gatorade Player of the Year. I am currently a starter on my AAU basketball team and am a four-year varsity starter for my high school team. I think that my work ethic and talent would be a great match for your program.

    For the rest of my athletic stats, highlight video, academic stats and personal statement, please visit my online profile at: [link to NCSA profile].

    I will be competing in an AAU tournament near you on September. 5, 2017, with my first game at 1p.m. CT. I would really appreciate it if you would could see me compete in person.

    Thank you!

    Sample email 2—Academic-focused email
    Dear Coach Johnson,

    I’m really impressed by your athletes’ dedication to both their athletics and academics. I noticed that you not only have a winning record, but you have set the school record for graduating the most athletes! As an aspiring college athlete, I am driven to excel both athletically and academically, and I believe I would be a great fit for your program.

    My name is John Smith and I’m a left-handed pitcher with an 85-MPH fastball. My biggest asset is that I’m a team player who focuses both on the field and in the classroom. I’m currently in the top 5% of my class with a 4.0 GPA and a 32 ACT. I’d like to major in prelaw, and I’ve been researching your school’s well-known prelaw program.

    You can view my profile for more information about my athletic and academic qualifications, as well as my skills video here: www.myNCSAprofile.org.

    I’m planning a trip to visit your campus this September, and I would love to meet you or another member of your coaching staff. Can you please let me know if you have any availability to meet with me? I will also be calling you tomorrow at 5p.m. CT to schedule a meeting!

    Thank you,

    John Smith

    Before you send, edit, edit, edit
    You’re so close to sending that email, but before you do, run spell check and re-read. A great way to catch strange wording or grammar errors is to read your email out loud. When you hear a phrase that sounds wrong, you’ll know you need to fix it. You can also cut and paste your email into Google Translate and listen for any errors.

    Still not sure if the email is error free? Have your parents take a look to double check. Make sure that you have included all your contact information, your call to action and a link to your full recruiting profile

    Insider tip: Try sending your email between 4-8 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday. Our data show that this is the best time to send an email to college coaches.
    Congratulations—now you know how to email college coaches, from the research to the subject line, from address to the email body! But your work is not done yet.

    First Day Of 2018-19 Training Camp For Florida Eels

    YOU KNOW WHEN YOU REACHED THE NEXT LEVEL WHEN....

    Guys the primary reason why you play Junior hockey is so you develop and advance on to the Next Level. For most players that is college. Well, as one of my players just realized he reached the Next Level when recently  while he was up in Boston for the Showcases, he received an email and text from his new college coach and the coach asked:
    “What number would you like?”
    “What is size would you be for the team track suite?”
    “What size would you be for the team jerseys?”

    Folks I cannot describe the look on my player’s face…filled with such emotion and excitement. This is what it is all about. This is the reason why players come to the Florida Eels Junior program. One cannot describe what it is like….As parents, teammates and future players, we promise to get you there as we have for 220 of our Alumni.
    This was clearly the high point of our weekend. More important than any win or goal that was scored.
