Bec Goddard is the inaugural AFLW Premiership coach of the Adelaide Crows. Bec coached the Adelaide Crows split across South Australia and the Northern Territory for the first two seasons of the AFLW while working for the Australian Federal Police (AFP) as a sergeant in child protection.

Bec’s career with the AFP has seen her deployed to Bali in the wake of the 2005 bombings and to Thailand following the Tsunami in 2004. She has worked in other portfolios as diverse as people smuggling, victim based crime, ACT Policing and professional standards.

On the football field she has been a premiership-winning player as well as coach in community football, and in 2009 became the first woman to umpire a state league game in the North East Australian Football League (NEAFL).

In 2017, Bec not only won the inaugural AFLW premiership but was also named as AFLW All-Australian coach, South Australian Sports Coach of the Year and the AFL’s Football Woman of the Year.

Bec has returned to Canberra and continues to work in child protection for the AFP while being an Assistant Coach in the WNBL with the University of Canberra Capitals. Bec is a passionate advocate for diversity and equality in Australian sport.
