Joining Lisa Daniel on Word for word today is guest Rebecca ‘Bec’ Goddard. Bec OAM is an Australian rules football coach currently serving as the head coach of the Hawthorn Football Club in the AFLW competition. Goddard also previously coached Adelaide Football Club in the AFL Women’s competition between 2017 and 2018, winning the 2017 AFL Women’s Grand Final while working full-time for the Australian Federal Police. Bec played  Australian rules football  as a junior until the age of 13 before the absence of a girls competition forced her to stop. When Canberra got its first women’s competition seven years later, she returned to playing for Belconnen at that level before a broken leg at age 29 forced her to swap her playing career for one in umpiring and coaching.  Outside of football, Bec previously worked for the  Australian Federal Police  where she attained the rank of Superintendent, at the time of her retirement she was attached to ACT Policing in charge on Police Communications. She retired from the Australian Federal Police in 2022 to pursue her football career full time with Hawthorn Football Club.  

Bec holds a degree in Journalism and once worked as a media advisory in theLabor  government of the 1990s. Goddard also holds a degree in  Persian language from the  Australian National University.
