USA Sport Scholarship Workshop
The Director of Crimson Athletics, Tessa Berger, will be flying in to run a free information session at the Taylor Sports Centre Function Room on Saturday, 3 November from 4pm – 5.30pm
Tessa will be taking families through the sport scholarship recruitment process and paying particular attention to academics as this can often be the deciding factor in being recruited to top US colleges.
It would be a fantastic opportunity for:
- Students involved in 1st teams – rowing, soccer, water polo, volleyball and basketball
- Students in Years 10-11 who have competed in representative level individual sports such as running, swimming, skiing, golf and tennis
