Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),

Having recently graduated with an MBA in Sports Management, I offer a proven track record of accomplishments in successfully designing and managing programs for school-aged and college-aged athletes. I am highly skilled in program development and implementation, working with participants that range from pre-teens, teens, and adults up to age 50.

Growing up a coach’s daughter who played multiple sports in high school, I am passionate about the benefits organized sports provide students. I am also committed to helping student athletes excel in not just their sport, but academics as well. Examples of my achievements include:

  • Developed and implemented multiple sports programs for school-aged children, ranging from middle school to high school athletics; trained employees in program planning and budget/resource management.
  • Created and delivered enrichment programs and lesson plans for more than 100 students at Company Name; planned activities for students that aligned with specific grade-level curriculum.
  • Secured sponsorships with donors and worked on event scheduling and planning for Company Name, including meet and greets, community service events, player orientation days, and various social events.

Eager to take on my next challenge, I respectfully submit my resume for your review. I would also like to request a personal meeting to discuss your upcoming 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 consideration.
