Communicating with Coaches: Athletes Wanted Free Sample Chapter

Where does a student-athlete with dreams of playing at the collegiate level begin? Every year, thousands of student-athletes get overlooked, not because they are not good enough, but because the right college coaches did not know about them.


To stop student-athletes from falling through the cracks, NCSA Athletic Recruiting's founder Chris Krause wrote Athlete’s Wanted as a total guide for student-athletes and parents to navigate the recruiting process, and a complete game plan for maximizing athletic scholarship and life potential.

  • Sample letters and emails for your reference, along with phone call guidelines, a sample script and specific questions to ask coaches based on your specific circumstance
  • Sample letters from college coaches and how to read between the lines to understand exactly what a coach means
