The seminars are aimed for junior players and their parents who are interested in the opportunities that are associated with a golf scholarship. It is an important process that individuals need to understand at least two years before their high school graduation. All interested athletes are invited to attend, specifically those in grades nine through 11.

The seminars will touch on the importance of academics; the costs associated with going to school in the United States; how to decide on the right program; how to introduce the player to coaches and share accomplishments; playing ability an how good players need to be; and the recruiting process: the use of recruiters, doing it yourself and NCAA criteria.

Seminars run for approximately 2.5 hours and the cost is $50.00 (plus HST) per family. Net proceeds will go to the GAO Junior Scholarship Fund. Registration fee includes various handouts, research information, a continental breakfast for morning sessions and refreshments for evening sessions.

Pre-Registration is required and can be done by visiting the online registration page.

For more information or questions concerning the seminars please contact Mary Ann Hayward, GAO Manager- Sport Performance, at mhayward@gao.ca.
