The athletic portfolio is a great tool to initially capture a coaches interest. It highlights your strengths and it shows your sincere interest to a specific coach.
It must be neat, colourful and easy to find important information. Make it eye-catching. If your portfolio is on the coaches desk with many others you want the coach to notice yours.
The portfolio should include:
- title page
- cover letter
- athletic resume
- status sheet of marks - available from your high school guidance counsellor
- reference letters - 2 coaches, 1 teacher
- pictures/newspaper clippings etc.
