Congratulations to Charli Corbin, the 2020-21 IAS HOCKEY ATHLETE OF THE YEAR!
Charli Corbin has been in the IAS hockey program for over three years and has developed into a leader on and off the pitch. She was selected as a captain for the past two years and is continually showing her commitment, leadership and enthusiasm.
In 2021, Charli was the youngest athlete selected into the NSW Open Women’s Country team. Unfortunately, Nationals was cancelled due to the Covid outbreak.
Charli won silver medals at both the 2021 Open Women’s and U18 Field Hockey State Championships.
“Charli has been eager to improve herself in all areas of the sport and actively seeks opportunities to improve and develop,” Alex Mackay, Hockey Head Coach said.
The runner-up of the IAS Hockey Athlete of the Year award was Oliver Hawker. Oliver was a standout performer for the IAS at the 2021 Your Local Club Academy Games, appointed as the male most valuable player. Oliver was selected into the Hockey NSW Accelerated Athlete Program (AAP) State Squad for 2021-22.
