Early life

Hope began playing Australian football competitively at the age of seven, playing with boys teams at Glenroy through under-12s. Without a viable youth girls league to join, Hope immediately progressed to playing senior women's football with Hatfield at the age of thirteen. She played representative football for Victoria at age 16, and captained the state side at under-19 level. She also represented the travelling Australia side in the first women's International Rules Series in 2006.

Hope ceased playing Australian football in 2011 after an accomplished period in the VWFL; in 2013, she witnessed the first AFL women's exhibition match and recommitted to football as a result, and was drafted with the eleventh selection the following year to the Western Bulldogs. She would go on to play for the club in representative exhibition matches for the next three years. In 2016, she kicked six goals in the victorious Western Bulldogs side against Melbourne in the women's all-stars game in September.
