SportsPower Local Legend: Felipe Mora

by The Know

Meet Felipe,

Our local legend from Coburg

Felipe was nominated by Michelle to be a SportsPower local legend. Here’s what Michelle had to say…

He does weekly volunteer outdoor education at a small local primary school. The kids there really enjoy his passion for outdoor games and physical movement. Felipe puts all his efforts into making great outdoor sessions with the kids.

After that nomination, we wanted to have a further Q&A with Felipe to really understand this legend.

The kids that I play with. They need a good role model, so that’s my inspiration.

What else can you tell us about your story…

I work voluntarily with kids at a local school, teaching them ball skills, soccer, footy, table tennis, whatever they are interested in. We have lots of fun and the kids really enjoy trying out new skills in a relaxed environment.
