Gemma's Ritual

My pre game ritual starts with our pre match meal 3 hours before the game. Once I have eaten I start getting ready for the game, by organizing my gear and getting into my uniform. Once I am ready I usually have a coffee with team mates before heading down to the bus. On the way to the ground I listen to music and once we arrive at the stadium our team plays music in the changing room to get ready to play!

Notes from the field

Hey, I'm Gemma Flynn and I play for Midlands HC In New Zealand. I started playing hockey at 5 years of age, although my Mum did give me a cut off hockey stick at 2 years old! I have been a member of the Black Sticks for 8 years and achieved my first international cap in 2008. If I didn’t play hockey I would probably be working and travelling the world!
