Wade Thompson


Senior Project Officer
Coach and Mentor

Arabana man Wade Thompson is a former AFL and SANFL League footballer and senior program officer for the Tjindu Foundation.

Thompson helped make history when, in his 2009 debut game, he was one of six Aboriginal players in the Power team that played against Melbourne – setting a new record for First Peoples’ participation in an on-field AFL team.

Since then, Wade has continued to play footy at state and local level, and has built his career working with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people delivering community engagement programs.
