Scriven joined the Sydney Uni Hockey Club as a junior in 2001 . She says the selection will hopefully lead to a permanent role with the NSW team in future years.
‘I’m quiet pleased to be a shadow, as I wasn’t expecting to make the team. But now I might get a chance to play,’said Scriven.
Scriven says training with several seasoned and experienced State-level players in the Sydney Uni First-Grade hockey team will also assist her development.
‘It’s good being around players who play a high standard of hockey. It makes me a better player. It definately helps,’ said Scriven.
Aisde from her involvement with Sydney Uni Hockey as a player, Scriven also assists with various coaching and umpiring roles for the club’s indoor and outdoor teams .
