Tia Hinds (rugby 7s) made her debut Commonwealth Games at Birmingham where she was part of the Australian women’s team that won the gold medal.
Following in the footsteps of her mum Janine who played touch football for Australia, Tia’s natural ability was apparent when she was young – she started playing touch football when she was just six years old and AFL with the Maroubra Saints when she was nine. At 13, Tia was playing touch in the under-18 girls’ team and mixed teams in her own age group. She was named in the under-15 Aussie rules side and was voted best player at the 2017 NSW schoolgirls’ championships
Graduating from Reddam House school and securing a contract with the national sevens program in 2020, the young talent was happy training alongside the squad destined for the Olympics but got a surprise call-up to go to Tokyo from head coach John Manenti as the baby of the team.
Tia is studying Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) at the University of Wollongong.
