Shooting Australia announces its Athletes’ Committee

Shooting Australia has today announced its Athletes’ Committee comprising four of Australia’s highly decorated target Shooting National Squad athletes across the shotgun, pistol, rifle and para disciplines.

Athletes who are currently part of the Shooting Australia National Squad in either the High Performance or Performance squad or athletes who have been part of either squad in the previous two years were eligible for nomination.

This is an exciting opportunity for Catherine Skinner (Shotgun), Glen McMurtrie (Para), Sergei Evglevski (Pistol) and Jack Rossiter (Rifle) to represent the views of all the Shooting Australia National Squad Athletes and provide input to the Shooting Australia Board in respect of those views. The Athletes’ Committee will also support all the Shooting Australia National Squad Athletes to succeed in both their sporting and non-sporting careers.

Shooting Australia President Cath Fettell says “We are excited by the re-introduction of the Athletes’ Committee. We look forward to working with the committee members who will represent the views of the Shooting Australia National Squad Athletes and help us to fulfill our purpose of enabling Australian athletes to be World’s Best”

The Athletes’ Committee is also extremely fortunate to have access to an independent mentor in Deidre Fischer who is experienced in board governance both internationally and within Australia. Deidre’s mantra that guides her work ‘leaders find ways to connect with their people and develop their potential’ will strongly support the work that she does moving forward with Shooting Australia and the Athletes’ Committee. “I am excited to be in on the ground floor and work with the Shooting Australia Athletes’ Committee as we implement the processes and practices towards maximising our effectiveness.”

The first meeting of the Athletes’ Committee, led by the independent mentor, is scheduled for December.
