Lidbetter selected in National Junior Squad
NTIS Hockey scholarship athlete Erin Lidbetter has been selected in the Hockey Australia National Junior Squad.
The National Junior Squad selections (U21s) have been selected based on the priority of the date of the next Junior World Cup (JWC). With the next JWC not being scheduled until 2020, the focus of the National Junior Squad is to deliver athletes performance ready into the senior National Development Squad and Hockey Australia High Performance Programs. The National Junior squad is capped at 27 athletes receiving the Australia’s Winning Edge classification.
Erin’s selection is a testimony to her hard work and dedication, claiming her position at the National Championships in July. This occurred despite having her tournament cut short with a fractured eye socket and a depressed cheekbone, suffered during the competition.
