IF not for coronavirus, Gerringong's Grace Stewart and her Hockeyroos would be in the middle of their 2020 Pro League campaign.
Not to mention ramping up preparations for their assault on the Tokyo Olympic Games.
But that alternative universe feels a million miles away right now, as the former Kiama High School student enters her sixth week of isolation.
While her teammate and fellow South Coast product Kalindi Commerford has spent the time back with her family in Mollymook, Stewart decided to stay in Perth - the home of Hockey Australia.
"In previous years, everyone knows I would have been on the first flight back to the South Coast when we were told the Hockey Australia program had been suspended indefinitely," Stewart said.
"But my boyfriend Will Grant has now moved over to Perth with me, meaning I couldn't just flee back to Gerringong."
During that time, it's only been Stewart and her electrician partner in Perth, as her two Hockeyroos roommates headed back to their respective homes - leaving the newly 23-year-old with plenty of time to herself.
"Will is still working, so it's generally just me at home each day," she said.
"I've tried to make the most of the time though, by running across the road at the park and using the nearby turf cricket nets for ball work.
"It's actually been really easy to stay motivated, as there is much else to do at the moment.
"When I'm not training, I've been doing my university work, watching Greys Anatomy, playing monopoly and reading - where I recently finished my first book Ellyse Perry's Perspective."
The Illawarra South Coast Hockey product is doing all this to ensure she hits the ground running when the squad returns, going into what could be her busiest year to date.
Especially when you consider the Olympic Games have been pushed back until July 23 to August 8 next year and the Pro League recently extended its season until June 2021.
"Even before the Games were postponed, we sort of knew a decision was coming - despite us training as normal," she said.
"While it's disappointing to have the Games pushed back a year, we are all thankful they weren't cancelled completely, which would have been heartbreaking.
"I am now looking at it as a positive, as we have an extra year to get better both individually and as a team.
"That's why I'm determined to not lose my rhythm and form, which I considered to be some of the best of my career.
"I've worked too hard the past four years to let it fall by the wayside.
"The first few weeks of break, we could do our own thing and the coaches have now sent us a four-week program which sets out three runs, two weight (after buying a gym set on Gumtree) and one pilates session per week - as well as a zoom chat with the whole squad once a fortnight.
"It's a nice change from our usually full-on schedule - it's giving me a chance to recharge the batteries.
"I'm making the most of this enforced break, as we've been told this will be our last extended time off before the Games next year - this is the longest I've had off team training in four years.
"We might have a week or two at Christmas, but apart from that, it's going to be go, go, go."
"The Games experience was much different for me in Rio than this time around," she said.
"I came into that squad late and didn't have the four-year process leading up into it, including all the qualifiers.
"Now I appreciate the sacrifices I need to make and the level I need to be at physically and mentally leading into a big event.
"Obviously I've had an up and down past couple of years but I feel I'm now in the best position in my career.
"It would be special to get the opportunity to play at another Games and I can't wait to prove my worth to the squad when training resumes.
"With Hockey One being cancelled, next year's national squad will be based on our training sessions, so it's imperative I put my best foot forward.
"I'm determined to make the squad, as I think we have the team that can go all the way in Tokyo."
