NSWCHS Blue – Kyle Rogers

Miranda RSL Youth Club would like to congratulate member Kyle Rogers on receiving a NSWCHS Blue for Trampoline Sports.

The Blue is the highest school sporting award a student can receive and is awarded for outstanding sporting ability to individuals who have represented their school, region or state with great sportsmanship. Athletes must be nominated for the award by their School or Team Manager. Recipients are then selected via a committee with only a handful of Blues awarded each year.

Kyle is the first disability student to receive this award.

Kyle is a dedicated member of the Youth Club and a six year member of the Sydney East Combined High Schools Trampoline Team. Kyle competes in the Multi-Class Boys division and has placed at least once in every year he has competed. In 2018, his final year on the Sydney East team, he achieved the following outstanding results:
