College recruiting seminar in Bundy

TALENTED athletes across Bundaberg will be able to attend a free seminar from US company Custom College Recruiting.

The information evening is aimed at Year 9 - 12 students and their parents with regards to securing a sporting college scholarship.

The company's basketball director Aaron Saybert will deliver the seminar and said it was applicable to students playing other sports, not just basketball.

These sports include soccer, athletics and rugby.

"We help athletes that want to explore their options to play their chosen sport in the US," he said.

"We help them get exposure to those universities.

"We just started working with rugby to explore those pathways as well."

Saybert said there were many benefits to studying abroad.

"The biggest benefit is you can get a quality education at a university over there and at the same time develop as a player in your chosen sport," he said.

Saybert said the seminar would help debunk some myths regarding college scholarships and give attendees a strong idea of what the process would involve.

The Bundaberg seminar will be held at Across the Waves Sails Function Room on Wednesday, July 22 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
