en-us Inspired by Yarra

Cameron Britt

YOG 2002

CEO, Wanneroo Basketball Association

“The Yarra Spirit was a group of students with positive relationships who were making the most of their future.”

Sport has played a major part in Cameron’s life since his school days and that love of sport was encouraged and fostered when he joined Yarra Valley Grammar in Year 8.

“My friends and I spent a lot of time playing four-square with a tennis ball - there were some huge battle royales!” says Cameron.

“I think we were an athletically academic group and I was involved in a raft of sports - that, for me, was the Yarra experience.”

Cameron joined Yarra Valley Grammar after a year at a state high school.

“My brother transitioned to Yarra the year before and he’d come home in the marvellous uniform. I was very happy to wear that blazer a year later,” he says.

“I remember teachers who encouraged and supported learning. They pushed you as much as you wanted to be pushed towards the places you wanted to go.”

After graduating, Cameron completed a Bachelor of Business Sports Management and has worked in community health programs and with Essendon Football Club.

“I was super impressed by Joe Daniher during a team trip to India where we visited orphanages and ran football clinics. I found him to be a real community leader.”

Cameron’s also studied a Master of Business Administration and was listed in the 2019 40under40 Awards program which celebrates Western Australia’s 40 leading business entrepreneurs under the age of 40.  He now leads one of the largest professionally operated basketball associations in WA.
