Athlete of the month
Age: 16 years old
Sport: Football – Pararoo and NSW Representative Player
My name is Daniel. I am 16 years old and I am in Year 10 at Christian Community High School in Coffs Harbour.
When I was younger I used to fall over a lot, I always walked on my toes and I used to have lots of muscle cramps. I was 4 years old when I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy which affects both my
legs. I have had lots of intervention with physiotherapy / AFO’s / serial casting and Botox treatments. It has helped in enabling me to play the sport that I love.
I have been playing football since I was 5. I played local club football and was also involved in the Junior Development Programme and Skills Acquisition Programme for North Coast Football.
