Ash Brazill

Trailblazing multi-sport athlete who plays for Collingwood in the Super Netball and AFLW competitions

Ash is often described as a trail blazer. A title Ash never fully understood until she was introduced at a luncheon one day as the first openly gay netballer, the first footballer to win Rookie of the year after just 5 games, the first athlete to play two national sporting codes for one club, and the first netballer to have a hashtag trend #justiceforbraz after missing out on a diamonds selection.

The first openly gay netballer as well as a content creator and adrenalin junkie, there are few athletes like Ash.

Spend 5 minutes with Ash and you’ll get a unique perspective on all things elite sport and what it’s like taking the road less travelled.

The challenges, the compromises and the rewards. You’ll walk away feeling genuinely energized by Ash’s engagement, sincere stories and her refreshingly authentic approach.
