Hieronder stelt Faith zich voor:
I am Faith Joubert and I am 18 years old from Edinburgh, Scotland. I have been playing hockey for the past six years and I finished high school in June 2020. I am taking the next couple of years to improve my hockey before attending university.
To tell you more about my hockey career so far, I have been part of the Scottish programme for the past three years, captaining my team in several test matches. In 2019, I was named U18 Scottish Hockey Player of the Year. I attended Michigan State University on a field hockey scholarship for six months at the end of 2020 and I am hoping to go to the Netherlands for the 2021-22 season before attending Loughborough University who are part of the English premiership league. I have an upcoming GB EDP trial (Great Britain Elite Development Programme - step below GB team) which has been postponed due to coronavirus. I have captained my school (George Watson’s College) and club team (Watsonians) to Scottish titles. I played in the Scottish Women’s Premiership League and was part of my teams leadership group despite being one of the youngest in the team.
I’m aspiring to become a full-time Great British hockey player competing at the Olympic Games and FIH Pro League as well as representing Scotland at Commonwealth Games and the World Cup.
I also coach and umpire younger children where I hope to pass on my love for hockey to them!

Off the pitch, I love to relax with friends and family, read, draw, cook and watch sport! I would love to come to the Netherlands to experience the culture and passion for hockey that everyone shares. I visited Holland in 2016 and the people and place was incredible! I am very dedicated to hockey and hope to have the opportunity to develop as a player in the Netherlands!
