Book gives kids sporting chance

AFTER a lifetime addicted to sport, Chad Kolcze was disappointed to find there were no children's books available dedicated to action sports.

He wanted his young son Maiso to learn about sport from a young age and also encourage him to read.

So the Suffolk Park professional snowboarder and PDHPE teacher set about writing a children's book he hopes will become a four-part series.

Titled Byron Bay Locals, the first in the series is called Skate Sessions.

The book will be launched at this year's Byron Bay Writers Festival on August 9.

Chad hopes that books on snowboarding, surfing and football will follow.

The book has been endorsed by former Byron Bay professional surfer Danny Wills, and has also received the support of the local Arakwal people.
