Isaac Sutherland began his involvement with Sport Canterbury in January 2014, through an events internship with the Trust.
He was appointed as Sport Canterbury Events Coordinator in September 2014.
In this new role, Isaac has been responsible for developing and enhancing Sport Canterbury’s events portfolio, and coordinating the popular Top Team Challenge.
He has helped to take Top Team into over 104 schools and communities, reaching 14,000 students, over the past year.
Isaac holds a Bachelor of Applied Business Management, with a major in Event Management and Sport Management.
He enjoys both the physical challenges and social aspects of sporting involvement, competing with the Ridge Riders (dragon boating) and coaching young swimmers at Christchurch’s AquaGym.
Water sports have always played an important part in Isaac’s life, and he hopes to see interest in open water swimming increase throughout Greater Christchurch, as a result of the Sport Canterbury Swim Series at Corsair Bay.
