Biography

A country boy who grew up in Wagga Wagga until the age of 14, Tristan White first picked up a hockey stick at the age of three. With a strong family interest in hockey, it was natural that he would follow in the footsteps of his mother, uncle and cousins as a hockey player despite a keen interest in a broad range of sports when he was younger; most notably, Australian Rules football and body boarding from the age of 14. 

A graduate of Wollongong University, White holds a Bachelor’s degree in commerce having majored in finance. With his head for numbers, he hopes to work in institutional banking or capital budgeting for a large company in the future before going on to build up a portfolio of investment properties.

Having played age-group representative hockey at every level since he was 11, White’s international prospects really took off when he was injected early into the National Junior Squad ahead of the 2009 Junior World Cup, where he was a teammate of fellow Kookaburras Kieran Govers, Matt Gohdes and Matthew Swann.
