Jasmine Garner (born 8 July 1994) is an Australian rules footballer with the North Melbourne Football Club in the AFL Women's (AFLW). Garner scored the first-ever goal in the AFLW competition, playing for Collingwood in the competition's inaugural match in 2017.
Garner grew up supporting the Carlton Football Club, and Anthony Koutoufides was her favourite player. Garner started playing local football at the Yarraville Football Club at the age of eight, however she later went through a stage where she was "not really enjoying playing footy anymore". She was inspired by the women's exhibition games that took place in the years prior to the conception of the AFL Women's competition, and juggled local football with her day job as an apprentice landscaper.
Garner played for the St Kilda Sharks in the VFL Women's (VFLW) in 2016 alongside future Collingwood teammate Moana Hope, kicking 41 goals. Garner was drafted by Collingwood with the club's eleventh selection, eighty-sixth overall, in the 2016 AFL Women's draft.
Garner made her debut in round 1, 2017, in the inaugural AFLW match at IKON Park against Carlton, where she kicked the league's first-ever goal (and Collingwood's only goal for the game). She went on to kick five goals in her first season.
Collingwood signed Garner for the 2018 season during the trade period in May 2017. On 2 September, Garner played for Victoria in the inaugural AFL Women's State of Origin match, where she was named among Victoria's best players with a game-high (and career-best) five goals.
