Chiocci, who was club's second selection and eleventh overall in the 2016 AFL Women's draft, was the inaugural AFLW captain for the side and played in all seven games.
In 2018, she was only able to play five matches as she was suspended for making forceful head-high contact with the Western Bulldogs player Libby Birch in round 5.
