“I have been involved with sportspeople with a disability for more 8 years. I have seen the way lives are changed through participation and elite sport for our athletes with a disability and their families. I am excited to work with the DSA team to continue and extend the opportunities for our sports.

“The coming years bring a clear focus on increasing the participation of Australians with a disability in sport and active recreation, and I look forward to working closely with John and the Board of DSA to support more Australians with a disability have more choices and better access to sport and active recreation activities” said Jenni Cole, CEO of Disability Sports Australia.

We welcome John’s experience and leadership, as well as his passion for disability sport, as DSA works to achieve excellence in all aspects of our operations so that we can effectively and sustainably work to change lives through sport.
