About the project

Goal

Alexie has been selected for Water Polo Australia’s Born 2002 National Camp from 22-26th November to be held at the AIS in Canberra with Coach Rebecca Rippon and School Sport Australia Girls International Tour – United Kingdom & New Zealand 4th – 21st December.

The Aust school team will train and play games at Bolton, Liverpool and Sheffield. Travel to Gloucester Play against Cheltenham College and to London against Whitgift school. Then travel to NZ for a 3 test series.


Background

From the first game of Water polo at 12 years of age Alexie knew the sport was for her. Her local Clubs Central Newcastle & Woy Woy Wombats helped nurture and developed her passion for this team sport. It has instilled an attitude of hard work, dedication, commitment and team comradery within her. With fantastic coaches Alexie was soon representing the area with Hunter Hurricanes in her age division and the age group above.

In a short period of time Alexie made her debut for Hunter Hurricanes National League in 2018 at the age of 15 years old and had the privilege of training and playing with Rachel Fattal (USA Gold Olympian) and Jane Moran (Australian Bronze Olympian).

2018 has seen a new level of commitment and Alexie has been fortunate to compete in Australia’s top tournaments. A highlight was the Pan Pacific’s for u16 NSW Blues under the guidance of Greg McFadden and the team came home with a Gold medal.
