Rochdale Underwater Hockey Club

Beccy's off to Tasmania with Team GB

Rochdale Underwater Hockey Club member, Rebecca, has been chosen to join the Great Britain under 19’s girls underwater hockey team and represent Great Britain in the World Championships.

Rebecca has been training in underwater hockey since 2012. Her hard work and dedication has paid off as she begins to step up her training in preparation for the World Championships, which will be held in Tasmania. Another member, Zach Tait, will also be representing team GB in the championships.

Rebecca said:

I am very proud of both myself and my teammates for getting selected to represent Great Britain in the underwater hockey World Championships. I can’t wait to spend time with such amazing people and go on a plane for the very first time!!! Although 30 hours of flying is a bit daunting…

I need to start training harder now since the coaches will be watching me like a hawk now I’ve been selected, but I’ve always been one for a challenge. I’m slightly upset to be missing the school prom, but it is definitely going to be worth it! Tasmania here I come.

Rebecca will be training for 15 hours a week in preparation for the championships, as well as studying. She will need lots of support for before both her exams and the championship, but her dedication and work ethic means that everyone is confident that she will succeed in both.

Rebecca intends to pursue her ambitions in underwater hockey in preparation for the opportunity to join the elite GB team. We can’t wait to follow her success.

Good luck to Rebecca and the rest of the team.
