At the risk of being redundant, I imagine some people are new to this, so here are some tips: 1. Include all details in every single e-mail and not in an attachment. 2. When writing before a tournament, the necessary details include the name of the tournament and city, your team name (EXACT team name), pool play schedule with name of park and field numbers, opponents, grad year, position(s), jersey number. You could also include coach information and uniform colors, but the things in the first sentence need to be in the body of every single e-mail. Attachments are a hassle and sometimes don't work properly. Do not change the font or background color, as these often don't show up on a phone and we might need to refer to our phones when we're outside during a tournament. 3. Get the college coach's name and school right. 4. Understand the level of the college you are writing to and whether they can contact you back. NCAA Div. III and NAIA can contact you. NCAA Div. II can do so beginning June 15 after the sophomore year. NCAA Div. I is one I would need to look up to be certain, but I want to say they can't write back or call until the player starts her junior year in high school. Someone please correct me if that's wrong. One minor note about profiles. I have no idea why girls list the camps they have attended. If you have attended a school's camp, that coaching staff already knows. If you haven't and you send your profile to us and you have been to 15 other camps, including several in the same league, what do you think we are thinking?
