Dear Sir/ Madam I am writing this letter with regard to a job opening as a soccer instructor at River Cree club. Let me introduce myself first. My name is Joe, and I started learning a different kind of sports when I graduated from high school. My goal is always to encourage younger children to stay active and fit and to make them a competitor in the right way. Talking about my experience, I have been working full-time for the Calling Wood elementary school as a sports teacher. So far, I have trained from 200-250 students from beginner to advanced level. I have taught them techniques such as passing, working as a team, and saving goals. While I am still trying to reduce my hours at my current job, it would be difficult for me to start working this week. However, I can commence training beginning the next month. If I get an opportunity to work for your club, then it would help me to gain additional skills. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Regards, Joe
