Webmaster/Historian - Pete Shefford


The role of Webmaster/Historian for the Federation provides the following:

  1. Update of news articles to the FIT website from the broader global Touch community.
  2. Collation of statistical & historical data from FIT accredited international events.

Peter has been involved in Touch for over 3 decades, encompassing a variety of roles across all technical and administration streams, as well as his background as a player. Peter has coached from park level to World Cup level with both England and Australian national teams; has been a member of Touch Football Australia's National Selection panel; as well as holding a number of Board roles at both regional and state level.

Peter holds an Associate Diploma of Engineering (Electronics), a Bachelor of Business (Sports Management & Human Resources), as well as a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching. He resides in North Queensland, Australia, where he currently teaches High School mathematics. Peter initiated the emergence of the former FIT website back in 2008, and has held the role of Webmaster since that time. He became interested in statistical data when compiling historical records for the state of Victoria (Australia), and was a contributor to Cary Thompson's published Australian based Almanac. Peter has since taken on the role as FIT Historian in the hope of continuing the incredible work done by his predecessor.
