Our Parent Mentor Program focuses on connecting new para sports parents to parents who have been in their sports for a number of years through their child's participation.

I’ve been playing Football since I was 4 years old, and the clubs I’ve been involved in were: Brindabella blues, All abilities, Monaro Panthers, Lake Macquarie Rosters, Wallsend Devils, and Rutherford dragons.
In Athletics, the clubs I have been involved in were: ACT little Athletics, Maitland little Athletics and Macquarie Hunter Little Athletics Club.
3. What made you change sports from athletics to Cerebral Palsy football?
I originally played football from aged 4, as I grew up in a football family and my parents met through football, plus all my sisters played football. Throughout my whole childhood I played football. When I was involved with the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Football Camps in Narrabeen under the expertise of Chris Pine who was an ex Pararoos player, I learnt a lot about football and he really helped me feel confident in playing with Cerebral Palsy.
