Paul du Feu – President
I’m honoured to be President of the Jersey CGA. I first got involved in Jersey’s games’ administration in the early 80s and coached 2 swimmers who travelled to the Brisbane games in 1982. I attended my first games as a swimming coach in 1986. Since then I’ve been involved in some way or another all the way through to today.
As a member of the officers’ group I’m aware that the Games Movement needs to adapt and evolve to survive in today’s busy programme of high profile sports’ events. I feel passionately that the JERSEY team also need to be TOTALLY COMMITED to their sport showing COURAGE, striving for EXCELLENCE and going the extra mile to perform at a very high level.
As President I hope we can SUPPORT those we identify with that PASSION and see them through to a successful and enjoyable games experience.
