Dear High School Soccer Coaches,

I am writing to you to let you know about the amazing opportunity that Gallaudet University offers for deaf and hard-of-hearing student-athletes. Gallaudet University is the only university in the world specifically designed for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. We offer a wide range of academic and athletic programs, and one of the most sought-after is our men's soccer program. At Gallaudet, we are committed to providing our student-athletes with the same opportunities that any student-athlete would receive at any other university. Our men's soccer program is no different. We strive to help our student-athletes reach their potential and to challenge them to become the best versions of themselves. We offer our student-athletes a wide range of experiences, both on and off the field, that will help them grow as players and people. We are looking for talented deaf and hard-of-hearing student-athletes who are interested in joining our men's soccer program. We believe that our program provides the perfect environment for student-athletes to reach their goals and compete at the highest level. We would love to have more student-athletes from your high school join our team and take advantage of this opportunity.

If you have any questions about our program or if you know of any deaf and hard-of-hearing student-athletes who might be interested in joining our team, please do not hesitate to reach out. We would love to hear from you and discuss how we can make this experience the best it can be for your student-athletes. Thank you for your time and consideration.
