Key Elements
Professional, easy to follow, and provide an appropriate picture.  First impressions are important!

Contact all of the coaches.  A lot of recruiting duties are spilt among coaching staffs, be sure to email the head coach and the assistants.

Vital information to get you into a school.  Graduation Year, GPA, & SAT scores.  Coaches need to know when you graduate and if you can get into their institution.

Provide all of the information needed to watch you play.  Name, club, event names, jersey number, game times, field locations.

Prove you have done your research!  Personalize your email to show you know something about their program and school.

Provide updated contact information.  Coaches often contact your club coaches and college advisors before they are allowed to contact you directly.  Be sure to provide them with your coaches and college advisors emails and phone numbers.  

Other accolades that could impact a schools interest in you.  Academic awards, honors society, track times, & other sport awards.


How To Aquire Film
Our club has a number of Veo cameras that we use to film games.  Ask your coach about filming a game, they can schedule a Veo and send you downloadable game film. 
If you are attending a game that an opponent is using a camera, don’t hesitate to reach out and ask for a copy.  Coaches are constantly sharing film.  
Most showcase events and some tournaments offer pay for game film options, check out your events website and see if this is a good option for you.
Key Elements of Your Video

Film is a good way to entice a college coach to come watch you play in person

3-6 minutes in length

Include highlight clips that show proficiency in multiple areas.  Make sure the clip is long enough for the coach to see your movement to get open to receive the ball as well as what you do with the ball.  You can use practice film but try to include game film as well.

Clearly identify yourself in each clip with an arrow or circle.  It is a good idea to identify the opposing team, especially if it is a high level game, you can do this with a subtitle.

Include an intro page at the beginning the includes your photo, grad year, GPA, team name, jersey number, and soccer position.

Useful Free Software
There are free video editing software that can help you clip and share your videos without needing professional help or any previous editing experience.  Youtube is a great place to host your final product and will make it easy to share.
