“I have been a member of Wheelchair Sport for Kids since I was 7 years old.

When I started, I looked up to the coaches and seniors of the time. I remember I used to try as hard as I could to beat them. I was very honoured to be given the head coaching position. Working with kids is one of my biggest passions, as I can give them the same tips and skills I was given as young person. I find it very fulfilling to see someone achieve something I have helped them achieve. I have represented Victoria in wheelchair basketball for the last 3 years.

I’m looking forward to developing the kids in the group, so that they can maybe one day play sport for Victoria too.”
