United Australia Party endorses Moore candidate

The United Australia Party executive has endorsed Rodney Chilcott as its candidate for Moore in Western Australia. 

As a happily married family man with children, Mr Chilcott is passionate about contributing to community and making a tangible difference with a team.

Mr Chilcott found his true passion for sport management after starting out with a printing trade and working in dredging and resources. He owned and ran sports stadiums in Malaga and Ballajura for 27 years and started his own business, Rocket Sports, exporting sporting goods to several countries.

Mr Chilcott was awarded The Australian Sports Medal in 2000 for his commitment to sports and helping street kids.

His leadership extends to a 20 year Presidency at W.A. Indoor Sports (20 years) and Vice Presidency at Indoor Sports Australia for 12 years. Cricket is a great love and Mr Chilcott has successfully played and coached at Australian Level, winning multiple World Cups in Australian Indoor Cricket and ‘Most Successful W.A. State Indoor Cricket Coach’ at National Level.

“I am passionate about children in sport in particular and also the need and wellbeing of older aged people in sport. I see that sport and physical activity is very important to one’s health and I am driven to reduce medical costs to the government of the day,” Mr Chilcott said.

“My vision is to build a better place for all and now that I have the time and ability to achieve this I have joined the Australia party to give 200% of my effort,” he said.
