NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) hockey graduate, Dylan Martin, is a defender in the Australian Men’s National Team, the Kookaburras, and will make his Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games.

Born and raised in Wagga Wagga NSW, Dylan was a member of the NSW Under 21s team that won the 2019 Australian Championships, where he was named Player of the Tournament, and was a standout for the victorious NSW Pride team that took out the inaugural Hockey One competition in 2019.

The NSWIS scholarship holder was then invited to be part of National Development Squad and after impressing selectors was elevated to the national team – the only addition to the squad ahead of the Tokyo Olympics.

Dylan debuted for the Kookaburras in May 2021 against New Zealand in the Trans-Tasman series. Incredibly less than a month later he was named in the Kookaburras team that will represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
