Jason Heatley (born 21 February 1972) is an Australian rules footballer.

Early career

Heatley started out in the Diamond Valley Football League in Victoria, he kicked 118 goals for North Heidelberg before being recruited to Subiaco, where he kicked 111 goals in 1993, winning the Bernie Naylor Medal.[1] He had caught the attention of AFL recruiters, and was picked up in the 1993 AFL Draft by the West Coast Eagles. He was unable to break into the strong Eagles team, after 3 seasons on the list for just 3 games, Heatley was delisted at the end of 1996. Heatley had continued to kick goals for Subiaco, 81 in 1994, 123 in 1995 (winning his second Bernie Naylor Medal) and 55 in 1996.

St Kilda career

St Kilda picked Heatley up in the 1996 AFL Draft, and he debuted for the Saints in 1997. Heatley kicked 73 goals in 1997, leading St Kilda's goalkicking and being a vital part of a St Kilda team.

Heatley played in 17 of 22 matches in the 1997 AFL Premiership Season home and away rounds in which St Kilda Football Club qualified in first position for the 1997 AFL Finals Series, winning the club’s 2nd Minor Premiership and 1st McClelland Trophy.[2]

Heatley played in the 1997 AFL Grand Final in which St Kilda was defeated by 31 points. He was the third highest goalkicker in the AFL that year, behind Tony Modra and Saverio Rocca.

In 1998 Heatley had an average year, the inconsistency of the team reflected his performances. However, he still won the Saints' goalkicking, albeit with only 48 goals for the year.

In 1999 and 2000 Heatley's AFL career started a downward spiral. He managed only 13 games in 1999 for a return of 27 goals, and in 2000 he played 7 games for only 15 goals. Heatley was delisted at the end of 2000.

Heatley return to North Heidelburg in 2001 and won the Diamond Valley goalkicking award by kicking 110 goals.

Heatley had a two year stint with the Tassie Devils in the VFL before coaching Warrnambool in the Hampden league.[3] Heatley returned to Melbourne and coaches Wantirna South in the Eastern Football League.
