Nikki Woodcroft has been a member of the Women’s Jr. Development Squad since 2011. She made her first Jr. appearance in 2011 on home soil in Vancouver vs the USA. She went on to make her first Sr. appearance in 2016 in San Diego vs the USA.
Nikki began playing field hockey in grade 9 when her friend recommended she try the sport out because she had the perfect skillset for it.
Field hockey runs deep in the Woodcroft family as Amanda, Nikki’s older sister, is a member of the Women’s National Team.
Woodcroft was part of the Canadian squad that captured 4th place at the 2016 Jr. Pan American Championships in Trinidad and Tobago. Her proudest field hockey moment was wearing the maple leaf for the first time.
Currently, Nikki plays for the University of Toronto where she is studying kinesiology.
