Congratulations to Camberwell Hockey Club's Andy Philpott and Aaron Kleinschmidt who were both recently named in the 2017 Kookaburras Squad.  

Hockey Australia announced the 23 player men's hockey squad that will form the core group of athletes as the Kookaburras look ahead to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
