Robin Casey, Project Consultant
- I joined the TGASF family in 2016. Using my expertise from reading law, my career, a soccer coach, and as a volunteer in the non-profit sector I took a deep dive into assessing the TGA Sports Foundation programs. As a player I experienced the benefits of playing sport. As a parent of young children participating in sports I witness the positive influence sport has on children. My passion is to support the TGASF mission to provide all children the opportunity to participate in sport and enjoy those same experiences. I’m proud to support the development of great programs offering learning opportunities for children everywhere. TGASF is entering an exciting phase with more scholarships and community programs than ever before, a brilliant team with strong leadership are poised to drive the future of equal access to youth sports. When not at work you will often find my wife and I on the sidelines supporting our own children’s journey through sport, equally enjoying a restaurant or family time on the beach!
