Caitlyn Edwards

Club: East Fremantle / Collingwood

Playing Honours:

  • Womens Exhibition Game 2014 & 15

Another young gun of the AFLW who has come from a background of playing a number of sports, Caitlyn packed her bags for Melbourne in late 2016 after being selected with pick 43 by the Collingwood Football Club.

Growing up playing Football, Rugby, and Netball, Caitlyn enjoys the competitiveness of sport and thrives in a team environment. Like many of the girls growing up playing footy, Caitlyn played with the boys until the age of 13 before she had to go straight into senior Womens Football as no other pathway existed. Never backing down from a challenge, Caitlyn continued on with her Football until she reached Year 12 when she was introduced to Rugby 7's and later into Rugby Union, as Womens Football wasn't offered in the curriculum. Whilst the introduction to the sport was swift, Caitlyn excelled at Rugby and was picked in the State Team. All of her sudden her Saturday's were spent playing Rugby and Sunday's were spent playing Football.

Caitlyn thrived during her time in Melbourne and enjoyed a terrific first season with Collingwood.
