FirstPoint USA is delighted to announce the launch of an exclusive and interactive live webinar series covering everything you need to know about securing a sports scholarship in the USA and the life-changing opportunities that come along with it.
Kicking off on the 29th of September and hosted by FirstPoint’s Head of Golf, Callum Macaulay, a former European Tour player who starred for the University of Mississippi’s men’s golf team – our “All you need to know about golf scholarships” webinar presentation has been carefully crafted to deliver a first-hand insight and direction about the opportunities that await in the USA collegiate circuit.
On FirstPoint’s forthcoming webinars, Callum Macaulay spoke on the value they can add to prospective young student-athletes:
“As a young aspiring golfer, my dream was always to play at the highest level. Playing college golf and studying for a life-changing degree education undoubtedly changed my life. Not only did I have the opportunity to play against the best in world-class facilities, but I left with a life experience and a degree. Our webinar series offers a fantastic insight for hopeful young men and women’s golfers on the process of securing a scholarship and what they can expect during their time in the USA.. With former clients including Danny Willett and Russell Knox, we have a proven track record in golf scholarships and look forward to speaking with the next generation of young golfers to give them the information they require.
Following on from our “All you need to know about golf scholarships” webinar, FirstPoint’s recently-appointed Head of Tennis, Claire Kinloch Anderson will be hosting a Tennis edition in a similar vein. Claire brings vast experience and insight on the tennis landscape within college sports, with some great success stories from the international tennis community and how best to prepare yourself as a player to make the most of the opportunities across the pond.
“This webinar has been carefully designed to shine a bright light on the incredible opportunities for tennis players to continue playing at a high level, honing their craft and securing a really unique and valuable education at the same time,” Claire said.
“When I first went to see my own son at Duke, the only way I could truly describe it was: this is the Disneyland of universities. It’s just phenomenal, the football stadium, the tennis courts and training areas, the opportunities for the players across all sports, you just can’t compare that to anything here at home in the UK, it’s just not comparable. These are truly world-class facilities.”
Claire continued: “The perception I’d like to help change within the UK and international tennis community is that this is only an opportunity for the top rung of players. Yes, of course, we wish to continue to cater to those players, but also for those others who are keen to study in the US and play competitive tennis while doing so. That’s one of the main drivers - to reach out to those players, not only in the UK but in academies across Europe, as they can all benefit hugely from the opportunity. There are so many different levels across the collegiate divisions and that means we’re able to cater to players across a huge scale of experience and ability”.
