Past Senior Coaches
Full-time Australian Federal Police officer Bec Goddard joined the Crows in 2016 to serve as the inaugural coach of the women’s team. Previously, Goddard had gained recognition for becoming the first female umpire (and later coach) in the NEAFL, being awarded the 2015 AFL Football Woman of the Year Award, and helping Woodville-West Torrens to a minor premiership as the under-18 forwards coach.
Goddard began the 2017 season alongside Fremantle’s Michelle Cowan as one of only two female coaches in the AFLW. Under her guidance, the Crows were dominant in the league and finished second on the ladder with five wins and two losses and the highest points total in the competition. Adelaide defeated the Brisbane Lions in the Grand Final to be awarded the inaugural AFLW Premiership trophy.
Goddard was unable to repeat the success in 2018 and the Crows finished fifth with a record of three wins, three losses, and a draw. Following the season, it was announced that she was returning to Canberra due to her commitments with the AFP, drawing her time at the Crows to an end.
As both the inaugural AFLW Premiership coach and the first female coach to win a premiership at the top level of Australian football, Bec Goddard will forever have a place in Australian sporting history.
