Chris Ryan

Chris Ryan attended school and played sport in and around the Fairfield area. During his school years he was fortunate to be amongst children from other countries which enriched his adolescence.

... actually my swimming took place at Granville pool and Canley Vale swimming pool. So there was always a train trip to get to a swimming pool. And I was fortunate all throughout my childhood and adolescence that my parents valued holidays and those holidays nearly always took place beside the sea. And from quite an early age, both my parents had been involved in surf life-saving clubs and I became interested in surfing and surfboard riding and that took up a fair bit of my time. Which was a little bit unique for a Western Suburbs person at the time. And I also, for many many years sort of played soccer.
