You might consider putting together an Athletic Resume and Cover Letter.
This is similar to a job resume, where instead of trying to get a job, you are going to be attempting to get an athletic scholarship.
There are examples of athletic resumes and cover letters online, and as you can see, just like particular job skills, you will be emphasizing your athletic abilities, positions played, academic skills, athletic awards, and other areas of your athletic career.
Once you complete your letter and resume, I would send it directly, through regular postage mail, to the coach of the universities you wish to attend. They literally get thousands of emails, so you want your envelope to land directly on their desk.
By doing this you will gain their attention, and can emphasize the possible ways you can benefit their team. So, it is much like trying out for a job. And you will most likely hear back from them.
I have used these resumes and cover letters with great success with my student athletes.
