Kelsey Leaver has been elevated to take on Henty's A-grade coaching position after captaining the side this season.
The 24-year-old, who came runner-up in the club's vote count, is coming off the back of her first official season as a Swampie after joining the club in 2020 from North Wagga with her partner Brayden Skeers.
The pair will both have leadership roles next year, with Skeers named assistant coach on the footy field.
But the duo may miss the first round of the Hume League season as the countdown to their wedding day continues.
Leaver has previously coached juniors as well as A-reserves in the Farrer League and said she's looking forward to her next challenge.
"They always say change is as good as a holiday and it definitely has been a nice holiday," she said.
"At the end of the season Millie (Bourke) asked me how I'd feel about coaching next year.
"I took on the job because I feel like there's such potential at Henty.
"I'm a bit nervous, but I think it will be a good experience.
"I know all of the girls are backing me up which makes it a lot easier."

Leaver takes the coaching reins from sisters Denise James and Nicole Mighalls.
The Swampies are set to be bolstered by the return of Rachael Terlich next season, who will give Leaver a helping hand.
"It's super exciting to have her back with her experience on the court," she said.
"We have a lot of young talented girls from the under-17s so hopefully they stay around."
During the netball off-season you can find Leaver taking to the football field for North Wagga in the women's AFL Riverina competition, with her fiancé as her coach.
She's now into her fifth season in the league.
"I really enjoy it because you go from netball to football, so there's no break, but you feel so much better for it," she said.
"It's getting bigger and bigger and the skills are getting better and better, which is great to see.
"We made the grand final this year but lost, which was a bit disappointing."
The competition has Hume League connections, with several netballers from Lockhart and Osborne also lining up for the Brookdale Bluebells.
The Swampies are set to have three pre-season sessions before Christmas.
