Janice Blackman: Elite softballer

Janice’s Deadly Choice: To exercise every day

Janice is a proud Gubbi Gubbi and Butchulla woman.

She plays elite level softball as a member of The Aussie Spirit Australian Open Women’s Squad, and has also represented Queensland as a member of the Queensland Heat. Competing at an elite level in softball has always been a goal for Janice.

Janice continues to aspire to further her softball career and hopes that more appearances at an international level will lead to a spot on a pro-league team overseas, or at the Olympics.

As a Deadly Choices Ambassador, Janice frequently attends community days and events, as well as Deadly Choices camps.

Janice has set many goals for herself from a young age and says that planning is key to success in sport, study, and life. She acknowledges that achieving any goal will mean some disappointment, but it does not mean anyone should give up trying to make dreams and aspirations a reality.

Favourite healthy meal: A lean piece of steak with some veggies.

Favourite exercise: Shuttle runs.
