Coaches are absolutely allowed to communicate via emails with your HS junior. Those who do not reply are either not interested, have no positions available or disorganized. As most of participants read emails on their phones these communications can be quite lively.
Coaches are allowed to offer private lessons to the potential recruits - it just has to be setup properly - form some kind of official clinic/club/camp open for all (see adfor's post above). If recruit is a member of such club the communication restrictions can be further relaxed (calls/texting is allowed I believe).
