About the project

I live in Regional N.S.W, in Wagga Wagga, and this year I have made it to the top of my chosen sport. I was told in February that I have been selected for the Australian team to play in the World Roller Games in Barcelona, Spain. 

I worked my way up as a referee for two years in the sport, training with the Wagga Wagga league, then played at Varsity Derby League (VDL), in Canberra, in their men’s team, and in Sydney with Sydney City Smash, who I have trained and played with for two years. I went back to coach Wagga Wagga for two years, and I have also bench coached mixed teams and women’s teams in Wagga Wollongong, and Canberra. 

The travel and expenses for this sport are immense for everyone, and if one lives in regional N.S.W they are ten times higher. I am the major breadwinner for my family, have two children at home, and a very supportive wife, two children off in Melbourne working, a dog and a chook. :)

I started this fund to raise money for my travel costs to Barcelona. 

If you can spare any money to get me to Spain to wear the Green & Gold. That would be great.
