Congratulations to Lily Brazel who has been selected in the 2017 Women’s national development squad. The selection comes on the back of further assessment of athletes previously identified as having potential to progress through the ranks to a senior level by the national head coaches, Paul Gaudoin and Colin Batch.

At the end of 2017, both the national senior squad and the national development squad for 2018 will be named based upon athlete performances throughout the year.

Hockey Australia High Performance Director, Toni Cumpston said: “Our national head coaches have selected athletes who we believe have the skills that can be devloped to form the next era of our high-performance program senior athletes. We will continue to identify opportunities for athletes to be assessed to enable our new coaching staff to thoroughly assess athletes to ensure we identify the best talent for success in Tokyo.”

Best wishes Lily.
