We connect to grow

“I am 25 years old and am a softball pitcher for the Great Britain Women’s National team. I have been in the Women’s programme since I was 16 years old and have had some pretty amazing experiences travelling the world and playing the game I love. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada, where I played club and university softball before spending the last 5 years playing professionally in The Netherlands. I have been fortunate enough to participate in 4 European Championships and 3 World Championships with Great Britain. This summer, I have the opportunity to represent GB at the Olympic Qualifier to reach the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Great Britain softball receives no funding for our program; so players and staff have to work extremely hard all year to participate in these tournaments, but every bit of the experience is so worth it! I am so grateful for the opportunities and friendships softball has given me all over the world as we connect to grow the game.”
