The Hawaii State Junior Golf Association will be presenting a college workshop in the Lihue Public Library’s conference room on Kaua’i Sunday, Oct. 27, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The workshop is directed towards students of all ages who intend to attend college – especially those who are interested in participating in a college sport.
Because academic and athletic preparation should begin at least by the intermediate grade level, students from the ages of 12 years can benefit from the workshop.
A panel consisting of local and mainland Division 1 coaches and players and parents of student-athletes will be present to answer questions pertaining to all aspects of collegiate sports. The workshop will cover topics such as recommended timelines for academic preparation, entrance requirements for college, athletic preparation for collegiate athletics, NCAA regulations and recruitment process, financial aid, scholarships, how to get noticed by coaches and life as a student-athlete.
Literature on various career opportunities in the golf industry and the Ping American College Golf Guide will be available for those interested in pursuing a career in golf.
The cost of the workshop is free for HSJGA members and $5 for non-members. Preregistration is not necessary.
