I first started playing on the recommendation of my school coach (Vic Alexander) when I was 14 to fill in for a match, and then for the rest of that season I was eager to volunteer for any other games where the team was a goalie short. Playing at a new level with and against experienced and skilled players (some international), which I would not have otherwise done. I learnt so much every game from the advice of my teammates, helping me to become a better and stronger player each week.
I’m so grateful for the opportunity to play with such a diverse group of players. I have gained so much experience and knowledge from the game, helping me to improve and allowing me to pass on to others.
It’s an amazing opportunity to play at another level which you may not have the exposure to in your school. You can play with incredibly skilled players, from who you can learn so much and improve your play.
I have played for Centaurs for the past three seasons, including the last National Club Championships, and will play in the upcoming Ghent tournament in September.
