ISSUE 4 - 2022

Welcome, and congratulations to everyone who was part of another successful year in FISAF Sport Aerobics here in Australia!  This year has been a big one on many levels, and it was so great to have all events in a live format once again. 

This term, our most elite athletes competed at the World Championships in the Czech Republic, for which we are extremely proud.   Our development team also had some wonderful meetings with some of our Victorian clubs and schools, and also meetings with schools who look to be joining FISAF for the first time in 2023.

We hope you enjoy this final issue for the year. Thank you for your ongoing support, and for being a valued part of our Australian community.

17.07.1958 - 07.11.2022

In honour of Deidre's life and contribution to FISAF we would like to pay tribute to her in this issue.

Deidre was a highly-regarded and beloved member of the FISAF Community for over two decades.  She enriched our community in so many ways, for which we will be forever grateful. 

She was first introduced to the sport when her daughter, Casey, began competing with her school, and has immersed herself as an official in the sport ever since.

In 2003 Deidre became a judge for FISAF Australia, and in 2016 she gained international accreditation.  She has judged at both the European Championships and the World Championships on several occasions.  Deidre has long-held positions on numerous FISAF Australia committees, and the depth of her expertise and experience has been invaluable to the sport aerobics community.

Deidre also ran Champs Sport Aerobics on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, alongside her beloved daughter, Casey.  Together Deidre and Casey were so proud of what their members have achieved.  Deidre got so much joy in having three generations of her family involved in the sport together, and cherished it immensely. 

These past few weeks were exceptionally special for Deidre, as she travelled to the Czech Republic for the FISAF International World Championships, with Casey, her granddaughter Chloe, and the rest of the Australian Team.  It was Chloe’s first time competing at the World Championships, and Deidre was bursting with pride and shared her elation at Chloe’s success with her family, friends and colleagues.

Always willing to help, Deidre was of course happy to step in and assist on the International Judging Panel when another judge was unable to attend at the last minute.

Forever Remembered

Deidre developed many deep friendships throughout her time in the sport, and we would like to acknowledge the impact she had on so many of us and the growth of sport aerobics in Australia.  We admire and appreciate Deidre most for her dedication, wisdom, support, and friendship.   

This year, we introduced our Community Contribution Award for the first time at our National Championships.  From this time forward, this award will be known as the Deidre Bryant Community Contribution Award, to honour the everlasting impact that Deidre made on our community.

Our hearts go out to Ken, Casey, Cheyne, Chloe and their extended family during this incredibly difficult time.

May you rest in peace, D.  
You will be greatly missed. xx

New FISAF Officials & Committees Manager
Recently, we announced to our clubs, the creation of a new Officials & Committees Manager role at FISAF Australia. 

As we grow as a sport, we are dedicated to also grow our team to enable us to continually improve our events, resources & services to our members. These go hand in hand, and this is our commitment to the FISAF Australia community.  
It is with great excitement that we announce Tracey Speville will be taking on the role of 'Officials & Committees Manager.'

Tracey has been a valued and active member of our FISAF community, both nationally and internationally, for over 20 years. Since making the decision to finish her time as a club owner at Aerodance, this has opened up the opportunity to extend upon her involvement with FISAF Australia.

The key areas that fall within Tracey's role include:
  • Facilitating the FISAF Executive and Technical Committees
  • Action ‘Requests to Compete,’ and other such requests with the EC and TC
  • Organise judges' briefings, rosters and FRF's for all events
  • Managing the recruitment, training, and support of FISAF Australia Judges
  • Creating updated resources for coaching, training, and judging development
  • Assisting with any questions in relation to rules, regulations, and routine feedback, in collaboration with our team of Head Judges.
Please contact Tracey via email at if you would like to discuss any of the matters above.
