MENTOR program

CPSARA provides access to a Mentor Program for athletes and parents!

Our Athlete Mentor Program is run by athletes for athletes. The aim of this program is to utilise knowledge from experienced athletes to support new and 'up and coming' athletes to excel in their chosen sport.   

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. 

GET STARTED

Let’s see what sports you are eligible for!  There are many sports to choose from including Athletics, Swimming, Football and Cycling to name a few.

Any and all support to CPSARA

1. How old are you and what are you currently studying?

I am 19 years old, and I am currently in my second year of studying Nuclear Medicine at the University of Newcastle.​

2. What sports have you been involved with and with which clubs?

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.
