Aran Zalewski has been almost ever-present for the Kookaburras in their biggest tournaments since late 2013. Known to his teammates as ‘Moose’, he is recognisable by the mop of messy blond hair.

Zalewski, who is one of the Kookaburras’ leadership group, won gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and World Cup in a successful year for him. The Margaret River native, who enjoys surfing and travel in his spare time, was part of Australia’s 2016 Rio Olympics side too.

When not attending hockey training or Curtin University, where he is studying a Bachelor of Commerce degree, he spends time with his four legged friend Bailey the chocolate brown Labrador and partner Teagan.
