Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
Good day. I am writing to you today to express my interest in your Athletic Program Manager opening that I was made aware of through our mutual friend Michelle Jones. Having known me as the coach of her two sons, she tells me she believes I would make a good fit for your organization. Please consider the following examples of my work:
- Coached middle and high school students in baseball and soccer for eight years, leading teams to district and regional playoffs with one appearance in a state championship.
- Mentored students in maintaining academic eligibility and qualification for sports scholarships to state universities; helped more than a dozen students earn scholarships to college.
- Developed recommended programs for healthy eating and workout regimens that were customized for students ages, body types, and sport requirements.
- Worked with parents and schools to raise funds for sports teams and events; planned and led multiple fundraising events for the purchase of new equipment and uniforms and to cover the cost of travel.
I have included my resume with this letter in hopes that you find my experience and qualifications match your needs. I would also like to invite a personal meeting to discuss your goals and how I can help you achieve them. I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call. Until then, thank you for your time and consideration.
