Dr. Bennie’s been exploring the relatively low representation of Indigenous coaches given the high number of Indigenous athletes in various high-performance sport settings. Findings thus far centre on a range of factors that either facilitated or obstructed coaching pathways.
Andrew Bennie, PhD, is a Senior Lecturer in the Health and Physical Education (HPE) Program at Western Sydney University.
