Biography

As a young goalkeeper, Ashlee Wells grew up observing fellow Hockeyroos teammate Rachael Lynch while the pair went through the ranks in their native Victoria. Learning and channelling herself off her goalkeeping colleague, Wells closely admired Lynch’s skill and technique. Now, as close friends and teammates, the pair spend a great deal of time together helping one another to improve as athletes.

After completing a Sport and Recreation Management course in 2010, she worked at Hockey Victoria before travelling to Perth to join the squad in 2011. Wells’ mother, a life member at their local hockey club, influenced her to pick up a hockey stick at age five.

One of the teams’ jokers, Wells and her partner in crime Rachael Lynch are often seen taking selfies or pulling funny faces into the GoPro during training and matches.
