Biography

It was a tough 2015 for Hockeyroos’ forward Kellie White, who faced her second anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in two years at the end of 2014. White was ruled out of the 2015 international action while she rehabilitated it.  

Re-joining the Hockeyroos’ Olympic training squad in early 2016, White now uses the experience to spur her on, reflecting on her injuries as a steep learning curve and ‘character building’.

One of two members of the Hockeyroos squad to hail from Crookwell (the other is Emily Smith) – a town of just over 2000 people – White first picked up a stick at the age of four. As a youngster, she looked up to former Hockeyroos player and Sydney 2000 Olympic gold medallist Nikki Hudson, while her uncle Desmond Spackman also represented Australia at the Olympics in 1956 and 1960.

In pursuit of her non-hockey dream to open a café with her soon to be husband Josh Miller, White couples her fulltime playing career with a part time course in Business Management.
