How to write an NCAA compliance officer cover letter

  • Address the employer with a formal salutation. For example, “Dear/Hello (name of the recipient).” If you do not know the recipient’s name, you can refer to them as the hiring manager.
  • The next step is to state the position you are applying for and how you found the opening. 
  • Make a brief statement about why you’re interested in the position. Write a paragraph about why you are the perfect candidate for the job.
  • State your skills and work experience. Ensure your skills and experiences are similar to the job position. When highlighting skills, provide the accomplishment you have achieved. 
  • Conclude your letter with a forward-looking statement. For example, “I look forward to discussing the position with you further.”

Application for Athletic Compliance Coordinator

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Athletic Compliance Coordinator with 2 years of university experience, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

In my current role at Sunnybank University, I support the Athletics Department in ensuring that our varsity sports programs, staff, and athletic program representatives comply with all university and NCAA regulations. Mirroring your requirements, I manage all NCAA applications, develop educational programs for student-athletes, monitor practice season and playing information, communicate with coaches to ensure accurate certification, and track practice period windows. 

In addition to my experience, I hold a Bachelor of Exercise Science and am currently completing a Master of Sports Management. I have deep knowledge of NCAA regulations and monitor these continuously. I excel at facilitating clear communication between university administration, coaches, student-athletes, and other stakeholders.

I have enjoyed my time at Sunnybank. As all teaching will be online this year due to the global pandemic, my role is no longer active. I now seek a stimulating opportunity with another university where I can make a similarly positive impact.

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Amy Wall
