Dr. Andrew Bennie

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.

Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management student Nickolas Kosmenko will give the introductory presentation at this Seminar Series session, speaking on his research, titled, “Slapping the Colonial ‘Puck’: Overcoming the barriers to First Nations athletes participation in university sport.”
