I never really thought I was fast enough to run D1 track in college, my bests are 2:06 and 4:50 for the 800 and mile respectively but I was told to contact the coach anyway. I kept putting it off because I thought I could run faster times and have something better to say, but I feel like I waited too long and I want to say something now. Is it okay for me to just email the head coach, just so I can express my interest in joining the team if I receive an appointment? Or is that not recommended? Also, do I have to do any NCAA forms, or anything else in regard to athletics at USNA, even if I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to compete for them? So I'm a little confused on what I should do because I'm not being recruited exactly, I just want to join the team. Any help would be appreciated.
