Alice's Story

Striker Alice Arnott is one of the Babyroos – the exciting youngsters injecting new hope and energy into Australian women’s hockey.

Called into the Hockeyroos squad ahead of the Paris Olympics after just three games for her country, Alice is the product of an impressive talent factory producing a new generation of stars.

As coach Katrina Powell overhauls the Hockeyroos in the wake of a quarter-final exit at the Tokyo Olympics, Alice was included in an inexperienced team that torched India in a three-Test series in Adelaide early in 2023.

Alice put in an impressive performance as one of five debutants in a squad missing 14 regular internationals, scoring in the opening game of the series.

Alice, who grew up just outside the northern NSW town of Tamworth, was named player of the tournament at the Australian Under-18 Hockey Championships in 2016, scoring a total of nine goals.

She debuted for the Jillaroos, the Australian U21 team, in a series against New Zealand in 2018. Alice made regular appearances for the Jillaroos in 2019 and 2020.

She was a key member of the NSW Pride team that won the Hockey One league in 2022.
