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

Athlete of the month
Daniel campbell

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.
