Taryn commits approximately 20 hours per week and has been doing so for over 10 years now. She works at an association level on the Sunshine Coast Churches Soccer Association committee as Women’s and Girls’ officer. She is currently Palmwoods Warriors FC (PWFC) club president and grant writer.  She is also a U/15 club coach and U/16 girls’ representative coach as well. She is regularly seen at the club marking fields, strapping ankles, and serving in the canteen making coffees. As a former physiotherapist, Taryn also takes a special interest in injury prevention programs, seeking to educate coaches and players on how to prevent injury. She has advocated for girls’ and women’s football on the Sunshine Coast. Her leadership has resulted in the Palmwoods club having the highest percentage of female players in the association.

Congratulations Taryn on the good volunteering you do, thank you!
