Co-captain Phillips led the Crows to the inaugural title this year, picking up an array of honours including league best-and-fairest, grand final best-afield and club champion.

Phillips will also take up a role as high performance coach with the AFL late in the year where she will work with youth academy teams.

I couldn’t imagine playing with any other AFLW team

The 32-year-old is also an Australian Opal but her future in basketball is unknown after being cut by her team Dallas Wings and retiring from the WNBA.

However she has accepted a new off-field role as Director of Player and Franchise Development with the Wings. She will remain in Dallas before returning to Australia in November.

“Last season was truly a dream come true, so to be able to stay at Adelaide is fantastic,” the daughter of former Port Adelaide star Greg told the Crows website.

“I couldn’t imagine playing with any other team.”

“With my retirement from playing in the WNBA, I’m looking forward to giving my body a rest and spending time with my family in Dallas before returning to Australia refreshed and ready to take on the second season of the AFLW.”
