FROM JILL WATSON, REDLANDS HOCKEY
Redlands Hockey’s 2023 Most Promising Female Junior, Charlie Jackson, debuted for the Brisbane Blaze on Sunday, 29th October, as the Blaze Player for a Day at the State Hockey Centre! Charlie spent the afternoon with the Blaze girls, warming up on the turf and listening to the team talk before watching the game from the VIP area.
Charlie played for the Junior Purple Pickle Ricks this season, and her passion for hockey, her attitude, and her personality were all something to be admired.
Charlie always showed up early; she was enthusiastic, polite and helpful. Charlie’s leadership has been outstanding this year with the U11 Reps and her Saturday team. Charlie has worked very hard to improve her skills, which have improved so much, including her ‘Jackson’ hit – a skill passed on from her mother!
The Brisbane Blaze plays in Australia’s national hockey league ‘Hockey One League’. This fast and exciting competition is played across Australia from September to November each year.
