WHEN 27 YEAR-OLD JARROD SCOTT participated in his last Worlds in 1997, he had been competing internationally for over a decade at both ends of the rink. Born in Adelaide on December 9th 1967, he first stepped on to ice at St Moritz Adelaide in Hindley Street. He attended his first hockey school at the Payneham ice rink in 1980, and after that he was hooked. He played for the Falcons Ice Hockey Club in A-grade from 1982 to 1997 and one season with the Blacktown Bullets in the New South Wales league, 1997-98. He also represented South Australia in the Tange, Brown and Goodall tournaments during those years, and sometimes all three in the same season. 
In 1983, he attended his first national camp. He was cut from that squad but he went on to represent Australia in the U18 Asian-Oceanic, the 1988 Thayer Tutt Trophy and the IIHF World Championships in 1990, 1993, 1996 and 1997. He played in the very first National Youth Team (U18) that competed at the IIHF Asian Oceanic U18 Championship held in Japan in 1984 with fellow South Australians Jari Hiltonen and goalie, Damian Holland. Coached by Canberra's Jim Fuyarchuk and South Australia's John Botterill, many of these young players went on to represent Australia in the national junior and senior teams.
Scott won bronze with the National Youth Team in Seoul in 1987; D-Pool silver with the Mighty Roos in Cardiff in 1990; and three Goodall Cups representing South Australia in 1987, 1990 and 1991. He played hockey in Australia for the last time in 1997. He married a Canadian girl and moved to Guelph Ontario, where the couple still live today with two daughters. He was still playing there and coaching local teams in 2016.
