Graduated - Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Management (now Bachelor of Business (Sport and Recreation Management)
Employment - Development Coordinator, Little Athletics SA
'I have always had a significant interest in sport and I am fascinated with what goes on behind the scenes at sporting organisations, this made the sport and recreation management degree a perfect fit. During my study, the teaching staff were excellent. Their support and feedback was invaluable and I credit them for guiding me on the path to achieving employment after university. Whilst studying, I undertook two university placements; as an Auskick Programs Assistant with the South Australian National Football League, and as the Growing for Gold Event Coordinator with the City of Salisbury. These placements provided me with an opportunity to transfer the skills and knowledge I learnt at university into a practical setting.
As a full-time Development Coordinator with Little Athletics SA, I am responsible for the coordination of the Little Athletics Program for Schools (LAPS) – a promotional program conducted in primary schools and kindergartens, providing children with an opportunity to experience the different track and field events that Little Athletics has to offer. I am also responsible for the upskilling of coaches, the management of our Development Officers, the delivery of our SA Athletics Academy and holiday development clinics, and the creation of our new Tiny Tots program.
I had a vision of where I wanted my career to be and it is satisfying knowing the hard work that I put in throughout my study was all worth it to achieve what I have.
