Caitlin Jade Foord (born 11 November, 1994) is an Australian professional football (soccer) player, who currently plays for Sky Blue FC in the National Women's Soccer League. She also plays for Sydney FC in the Australian W-League and is a member of the Australia women's national football team. She became the youngest Australian ever to play at a World Cup when she represented Australia at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup at the age of 16.
With the announcement that the Mariners would not field a women's team in the 2010–11 W-League season, Foord, along with fellow Mariners players Teresa Polias, Lydia Vandenbergh, and Renee Rollason, all switched to nearby club, Sydney FC.

Foord assisted the Australian Westfield U16 Women's team to progress through to the AFC U17 Women's Championship undefeated by scoring a hat-trick in a match against the Philippines.
Catlin was announced in an extended Australian Westfield Women's under 17 squad for the upcoming ASEAN Cup in October and AFC Championships in November.
In June–July 2011, Foord competed at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany. Foord started in two of the three group matches from right back, missing out on game two versus Equatorial Guinea. Foord then started from right midfield in the quarter-final game against Sweden, before showing off her quick pace down the right flank when reverting to the full-back position after Elyse Perry was substituted for Tameka Butt in the 59th minute. The Matildas were eliminated from the competition after losing this match 3–1. Foord was given the "Best Young Player" award for the tournament.
