Todd Balneaves is a local from St Hubert's Island on the Central Coast. He joined the team at the start of 2016 taking on the role of a Physiotherapist Assistant/Aide. Todd graduated from St Edwards College in 2014, and is currently studying Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney. He is currently in his second year of study and has taken a keen interest in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and sports related injuries, an area in which he hopes to go into once he graduates.
Todd's decision to study Physiotherapy is due to his constant involvement in sport and his keen interest of the human body and its function. Also having suffered several injuries himself and spending time in a Physiotherapy environment, he has developed a passion for the profession and helping people return to their pre-injury state.
As well as studying full time, Todd plays football at a high level for Manly United in the NSW Premier League. He began playing at the age of 5 and up until now has played for both Central Coast and Manly representative teams, and has also travelled over to the UK for trials. Todd also enjoys lots of outdoor activities, especially water sports, such as, jet skiing and wake boarding. He also enjoys watching all sorts of sport, in particular the English Premier League, where he is a keen Liverpool supporter.
