Matt Shaw

Matt Shaw, 26 years old born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria. Played for Chelsea Seagulls and Carrum Junior Football Clubs before being selected for Dandenong Stingrays in the TAC CUP. Matt played for Vic Country in the under 18 championships as a 17 year old, and went on to be drafted in the AFL pre draft to the Gold Coast Suns where he played 8 years and continued on to Carlton where he finished his career in 2018.

Matts passion outside of AFL football is the outdoors. He enjoys being amongst nature and spends most of his spare time fishing, surfing and being by the beach with his family. Matts passion for the outdoors has led him to exploring a new career path in an environmental role. His end goal one day is to be a Park Ranger or a Fisheries Officer.

Matt hopes to share his knowledge and passion for the game with younger aspiring players who hope to one day play at AFL level.

    First One on One Session with Matt

    My 9 year old son had a great first one on one session with Matt. He had so much fun we are going to continue the sessions once a fortnight. Matt work on my sons non preferred foot and hand balling with both hands. His communication with him was great and very positive. The activities he had set up were age appropriate and fun. He has given him some things to work on until our next session which we are looking forward to.

    Our son Byron just had his first coaching session with Matt. Byron thoroughly enjoyed the time Matt took with him teaching him new techniques to improve his game. Byron enjoyed the session so much that he was practicing the new taught techniques straight after his session. We look forward to regular coaching sessions with Matt.
