Shaun Atley is a professional Australian rules footballer who plays for the North Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was taken with draft pick #17 in the 2010 National Draft, and played the following year, in the 2011 AFL season.[1] Atley made his debut in Round 1, against West Coast.[2]

2012 was a much more successful year for Atley. He played every possible game, and was noted as one of the competition's most improved player. The catalyst of this change of form was a move to the backline, where he used his explosive pace and blistering speed to accelerate out of defence on numerous occasions to turn defence into attack. His kicking improved out of sight, and this was recognised with a fifth placing in the Syd Barker Medal.

He is the brother of Joe Atley, who plays for Port Adelaide Football Club.
