Chloe ready to take on the world


Year Nine student at St Norbert College Chloe Reder will test her hockey skills against an international field later this month after she was selected to play in the FHE Cup.

The four-day competition will feature teams from WA, NSW, Victoria, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia in the Under-16 age category, and will be held at Perth Hockey Stadium from November 23-26.

Chloe, who plays for the Victoria Park Panthers as a midfielder, said she was “extremely surprised” to be among the team of 13 selected to play in the FHE Cup.

“I have never played an international game of hockey, so this four-day tournament against Singapore, Japan and Malaysia will be an extraordinary experience,” she said.

An outstanding athlete in a number of sports, Chloe has been playing hockey since she was 5 and said she has always enjoyed it.

“I love how every game we play there is always something new brought to the pitch, no two games are the same,” she said.

The 15-year-old represented WA at the Australian National Championships in Sydney earlier this year and has her sights firmly set on higher honours.

“I would like to keep playing hockey at a high level and hopefully one day represent Australia as a Hockeyroo,” Chloe said. 

Hockey WA High Performance Manager Jason Butcher said the FHE Cup aims to give young hockey players the opportunity to compete on an international and professional stage.

“The opportunities to experience different styles of hockey, international level hockey in this age group and also to spend time with the international athletes learning about their culture are unique and great opportunities,” he said.

“The FHE Cup has been in existence for around 10 years, and a significant amount of our top players have been exposed at some point as juniors through this experience and opportunity.”
