Tyler Orr was awarded a Tier 3 Scholarship within the 2022 Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship and Mentoring Program.

Tyler was born and raised in the beachside suburbs south of Adelaide, South Australia and was a very keen surf lifesaver/swimmer from a young age. She represented South Port SLSC at numerous State and Aussie titles. In 2006, as a six-year-old, started playing netball at Ladybirds Netball Club however, it wasn’t until her mid-teenage years that she found her true passion for the game.

Tyler completed her secondary education at Cardijn College in South Australia and was involved in their netball academy from years 8-11 (2013-2016). After graduating (2017), Tyler was accepted into a Masters of Physiotherapy at Flinders University. After one year of studying this undergraduate degree, Tyler decided that she didn’t have the passion for Physio and transferred across to teaching, specifically Physical Education, and hasn’t looked back since.

In 2017, she received a SASI Scholarship which followed with her selection into the U17 and U19 National Squad Selection, a position she kept for three consecutive years. In 2019, Tyler Captained the South Australian Netball team and was named the Most Valuable Player at the National Netball Championships Grand Final. The team won the Netball SA Premiership, a title they defended in 2020.

Tyler was named as a replacement player for the Collingwood Magpies in the 2020 season, named as a training partner for the Adelaide Thunderbirds Netball Club in 2021 and selected in the 2021 U21 World Youth Cup. Amongst her many achievements she is also a triple gold medalist at the National Netball Championships in both U17 and U19 competitions.

Tyler is supported by her family, particularly her mum and dad, as well as her close circle of friends. Which she places as a great motivator, keeping her driven, sane, and inspired to reach the highest possible level in netball. She is committed and motivated to become the greatest athlete and person she can be to reaching the next level and understands that life balance plays an integral role in this.

Tyler continues to strive for more from herself and her teammates, so that one-day she can fulfil her dream of playing for the Australian Diamonds.

To be selected as a Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship Holder is an absolute privilege and I am super grateful for this opportunity to grow both as a person and as an athlete. Netball has brought me so many incredible memories thus far, and I am looking forward to progressing even more on and off-court thanks to this program. It means a lot to be picked alongside the other incredible Australian athletes from various sports. I am able to continue to balance the different aspects of my life, made easier thanks to the financial assistance which supports some of the expenses associated with playing elite netball.” – Tyler Orr on being selected as a 2022 Tier 3 Scholarship Holder.
