Parents here is a question for you…
What recreational sport can your child participate in and have an opportunity to accumulate scholarships for college?
While some of parents drive their kids towards the big sports (football, basketball, baseball or golf) with the hopes that they will excel and help with the cost of college through a sports scholarship, the fact is that only about 7% of high school athletes actually move on to play a varsity sport in college. Even a smaller percentage earn any scholarships for the sport they play and only 2% of high school athletes participate at the NCAA Division 1 Level!
Discouraging? – YES! BUT, what if your kid(s) could begin earning scholarships as soon as they begin to bowl. We are talking about kids as young as 3 and 4 years old earning a few bucks to help with the cost of college.
At Buffaloe Lanes Bowling Centers and in bowling centers across the country this is possible! For the 10th consecutive year, Buffaloe Lanes held its Youth Bowling Championship with $4,000 of scholarships up for grabs. In just 10 years, the Buffaloe Lanes Centers have funded $40,000 in scholarships to kids of all ages. (2015 Youth Championship Results)
Bowling is a sport that kids can participate in and enjoy for a lifetime!
So instead of trying to train your 5 year old to be the next Tiger Woods, LeBron James or Tom Brady, why not get them on the lanes and start banking some scholarships for college. Who knows…your child might be the next Sean Rash, Norm Duke or Tommy Jones!
