Overseas Basketball – How to Create an Professional Player Resume (Step 3)

Overseas Basketball – How to Create an Professional Player Resume (Step 3)

Your short resume is going to be 3 pages long. The first page is going to be very similar to your Eurobasket profile and resume. At the top you need to put:

Name:
Position:
Height:
Weight
College:

ALSO PUT ALL OF YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION AND YOUR AGENT’S CONTACT INFORMATION (if you have one)

Email:
Phone:
Skype Name:
Address:

Underneath that you are going to type a paragraph, in the third person, about your style of play and abilities. An example of third person is:

John Doe is a great athlete.

NOT: I am a great athlete.

This paragraph should only be three to four sentences long. It is always good to somehow tie in something about your character and your biggest achievement. An example of a good paragraph is:

By being second in the nation in 3pt % (NCAA1) this past season John Doe has shown his infinite range and proven he is one of the best shooters in the country. Although he is a prolific shooter, it is his overall ability to score the basketball and defend the opponent’s best player that is so impressive. John is one of the most professional and hard working prospects on the market. As a captain for the last two seasons at UCLA he has shown to have all the leadership qualities you would want in a point guard or shooting guard.

Next, type your statistics by year and school. For example:

Career:
2000-2004: Paso Robles Highschool (Lead team to a 23-3 record as a captain)
2005-2006: UCLA-6th man off the bench
2007-2008: UCLA-(NCAA)-Team captain: 11ppg, 2.1rpg, 3pt 44%, FG33%
2008-2009: UCLA-(NCAA)-Team captain: 15ppg, 3.7rpg, 3pt 48%, FG49%
2009-2010: UCLA-(NCAA)-Team captain: 15.3ppg, 3.5rpg, 3pt50%, FG45%

Next, you want to combine a list of all of your awards and achievements and place them at the bottom. Go ahead and be honest here but fill it up with as many as you can think of. That means if you do not have any in college use high school ones. If you have some in college, of course, add those. Highlight your biggest one. If you have any records put them in here as well.

On this page there should be an action shot of you and a headshot.

OK GOOD THE FIRST PAGE OF YOUR SHORT RESUME IS FINISHED NOW ONTO THE 2ND PAGE…
