Hi my name is a Bradley Rothwell. I was born and raised in a small town of Whakatane in the sunny Bay of Plenty. Family is hugely important to me, I am the eldest of 3 children and have grown up with a large supportive wider family who have always encouraged and supported me in all of my sporting interests. Originally playing football from the age of 4, I picked up a hockey stick when I was about 8 years old, being introduced by my cousin and uncle. Hockey has quickly become my passion and obsession with me taking every opportunity to pick up a stick and play.
Throughout my hockey journey I’ve had reasonable success; being part of the successful Whakatane Intermediate team that won the AIMS Games Boys Hockey, Mayhill Cup winning team with Trident High School, and making Bay of Plenty U13, U15 and U18 representative teams finishing 3rd and 2nd in two of those teams at National Tournaments. My latest achievement being selected for the U18 New Zealand National Performance Camp at the age of 16. In the off season, I really enjoy water skiing with my wider family, mountain biking, hunting and many other sports such as Volleyball and Football to name a few, Being a typical teenager socializing with friends is also very important to me.
As well as succeeding on the hockey turf success in the classroom is just as important to me. Having already achieved NCEA Level 1 with Excellence I’m hoping to repeat these results for Level 2. A moto that has guided me over the years is. ‘Results will be what they will be, as long as you’ve given it your best…and enjoy yourself’.
