Biography

Bringing the yellow JDH headband into fashion alongside Kookaburras representative Jamie Dwyer, Emily Smith is a key component in the Hockeyroos’ forward line. On the hunt for goals, you’ll often see Smith - otherwise known as ‘Spud’ to her teammates - bouncing, leaping and diving over her opponents in Australia’s attacking circle.  

Known by her Hockeyroos teammates for her electric laugh, Smith started Hookin2Hockey at the age of five. Growing up in New South Wales country town Crookwell alongside fellow Hockeyroo Kellie White, Smith’s family first introduced her to the game. Reflecting on her childhood, she believes her parents gave her the determination and motivation to succeed.

A whiz with numbers, Smith’s always been an A-grade maths student, contributing to her decision to enrol in a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Curtin University. Away from the hockey pitch, Smith has an adventurous side, often going camping, fishing and jet skiing with family and friends.
