Jason is a dedicated and hardworking community sports coach and primary education and sports business graduate. His applied experience in coaching covers swimming, both rugby codes, soccer, AFL and cricket – with many more inclusive sports programmes yet to be resized on his agenda.

Joining Tavs Tas allows Jason to apply his considerable experience in education, sports coaching, customer service and management to our innovative activities and strategies. Along with his deep insights and working knowledge in inclusive recreation and sports management, Jason brings a hard working and committed nature that’s passionately focused on creating fun and enjoyable team and individual experiences for all capabilities and needs.

Jason has seen first hand what influence meaningful opportunities to participate in sport have on an individual’s personal and social development. His efforts continue to change lives, so no surprise he’s gained significant personal recognition and also awards for his inclusive programs, inc – Cricket Australia Volunteer of the Year, Tasmanian Finalist for Australian of the Year, Cricket Community Champion, ‘A Sports for All’ Tasmanian Volunteer of the Year and the Beryl Haynes Award to name a few.

Jason’s involvement and strategic advice truly integrates Tavs Tas into the grass-roots inclusion movement and will help focus our support to those worthy causes that make the greatest and lasting positive impact for our most disadvantaged youth. Jason’s vision is to achieve mainstream inclusive thinking and understanding as a mainstream behaviour and expectation in our community.
