[Event] Best Strategies for Communicating with College Coaches During the Recruiting Process


There are lots of ways to communicate with college coaches. Listen to a former college coach talk about what works and what does not.

Former College Coach, Erik Johnson, discusses what college coaches look for in communication from recruits:

"I look forward to connecting with student athletes, parents and coaches to talk about communication with college coaches. I know that many families are nervous about how to reach out in the most effective ways, so I am excited to work with FindMyTeam on this important topic." – Erik Johnson

Erik Johnson spent 24 years coaching division I women's basketball, most recently as the head coach at Boston College in the ACC. Before that, Erik was the head coach at the University of Denver.
