SA Underwater hockey player CampaignI, Jessie-Marion, have had a passion for underwater hockey since I started the sport in 2019. My dream then developed into a passion to represent South Africa and wear the Green and Gold at the Worlds Tournament in Malaysia during July 2024.
Although Underwater Hockey (UWH) is not as well-known as our other National sports I believe that if we show passion, commitment & dedication, it will grow and become a household name. I am dedicated to the sport both though my own participation, but also by giving back to the sport through junior training support & actively marketing the sport wherever I am.
Although my passion will not dim, the cost of the sport to ensure active participation and sport kit is a costly investment, which I am happy to do. The knowledge however that the financial aspect for the Worlds Tournament can be covered, will allow me to focus on the sport & not the administration side. Through dedication, hard work, and opportunities like these I can continue to thrive in the sport and in so doing, ensure that the UWH community and South Africa as a nation, can grow and thrive in the sport of underwater hockey.
