Some common methods of contacting coaches are through emails, phone or letters. To locate the contact information of the coach, go to the school's or program's athletic or staff directory. All information for the coach will be found under their name.
Emailing and calling are the most efficient and commonly used methods to contact coaches. Remaining professional while doing so is important as well as including certain elements to the conversation, such as linking to a highlights video of the athlete's abilities.
Coaches have rules and guidelines on when/how they can talk to recruits and athletes. This may affect how the coach will return the contact. Following up an email with a phone call is an effective way to get on their recruiting list, even if they can't contact the respondent directly at first.
