Cover Letter

Dear Coach, 

My name is Ryan Cohen.

I just finished my junior year at Hawaii Preparatory Academy on the island of Hawaii.  In regards to why I am writing this letter, I am interested in swimming at your university and would like to know more about the program offered. 

My swim times are 53.60 in the 100 yard butterfly, 2:09.68 in the 200 yard butterfly, 2:01.56 in the 200 yard backstroke, and 57.18 in the 100 yard backstroke.  I swim for the Kona Aquatics Swim Club and my coaches are Steve Borowski and Eric Rhodes. I typically swim between five and ten thousand yards a day, five days a week. I've been swimming competitively for three years.

In the classroom I have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.8 and have taken a number of honors and AP courses.  I have made the Dean’s List every semester since my freshman year.  I am involved in multiple clubs at school, such as the triathlon club, the slam poetry club, and the musicians club (all of which are very involved in the local community).

In terms of athletics outside the pool, I participate in rough water swims every year (distances ranging between one and six miles); I have done two Olympic distance triathlons, and a few holiday runs.

I look forward to hearing back from you,


Ryan Cohen
