Event description

Description

Are you an up-and-coming athlete who dreams of making the most of your sporting talent but you also want to get a world-class education at the same time?

Then getting a US college athletic scholarship is your dream come true!

Competing in front of thousands of fans, training at top facilities and earning a degree is amazing enough but paying signficiantly less for the incredible US college experience is surely the icing on the cake!

The only problem is that getting a sport scholarship is SUPER competitive and there's much more to it than being able to sink a 3-pointer with your eyes closed or scorching the back of the net on the soccer field.

Be at the Function Room at the Gordon Golf Club on the evening of Wednesday, March 14 to learn everything you need to know about US athletics scholarships so you can unleash your potential!

This event will cover:

  • A detailed breakdown of the US athletic scholarship application process
  • The essentials for making your athletic scholarship application stand out from the crowd
  • The study / sport balance you can expect as a student-athlete
  • How being a student-athlete can increase your employability
  • The financial benefits of an athletic scholarship
  • The common mistakes that make applications fail
  • Q&A with former student-athletes and now athletic consultants.

Who should be at this event:

  • Year 9-12 students with strong athletic ability (regional representative or above is beneficial)
  • Parents of talented athletes
  • Local sports coaches

Event speakers:

Tessa Berger
Head Athletic Consultant
Tessa (pictured on the right in the banner image) attended Florida Gulf Coast University on a Division I full athletic scholarship, studying majors in business management and accounting with a concentration in entrepreneurship. She earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average, gaining prestigious Presidents List honours.

Tessa has represented New Zealand on the international stage for the past decade in soccer. Most notably, she competed in the FIFA Women's World Cup and received the honour of being named ASB Bank Young Sportsperson of the Year in 2011.

Bryan Moore
Head Athletic Consultant

Bryan is a graduate of Harvard University where he was recruited to the Men’s Lacrosse Team. While at Harvard, he earned All-Conference recognition and was the #2 ranked goaltender in the entire United States.

He broke a 5-year Ivy League record for the most saves in a single game (23), earned the Most Improved Player Award for Men’s Lacrosse, and won an elusive Ivy League Championship (and has the championship ring to prove it!). Bryan moved to Auckland, New Zealand with one goal in mind - help more international students enjoy the student-athlete life in America.

Free parking is available at the golf club. After the presentation, Crimson staff will be on-hand to discuss your goals.
