Asst Coach

Introducing our dynamic new addition to the U15’s coaching team, Madelyn “Maddy” Doherty!

From Hoops to Ovals: A Multisport Maven
Maddy’s sporting journey began on the basketball court, where she honed her skills for many seasons. However, with a love for diversity, she seamlessly transitioned to the footy field, dedicating seven seasons to the game. In 2023, Maddy brought her talents to the Surfers’ Senior Women’s side, proving her prowess as a versatile athlete.

Turning Setbacks into Opportunities
A challenging mid-season career-ending head injury couldn’t deter Maddy’s passion for the game. Instead, she found a new calling as a coach. Embracing this change, she decided to invest her time in coaching full-time, ensuring her continued presence at the club and helping girls grow as both athletes and individuals.

Versatile Coaching Experience
Maddy’s coaching journey extends beyond the footy field. With an impressive background in basketball coaching, she’s guided players from U8s through to U16s, showcasing her expertise in player development across age groups.

Strength and Conditioning Maestro
Adding to her coaching repertoire, Maddy takes on the crucial role of Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Senior Women’s team. Her commitment to player fitness and well-being is a testament to her holistic approach to coaching.


Let’s extend a warm welcome to Madelyn Doherty as she embarks on this exciting journey with our U15 girls. Her passion, diverse sports background, and commitment to player growth promise an incredible season ahead!
