Daws, who has also played with GFL clubs Belmont and St Marys, is a familiar face having played for the Coutas in 2017.
In recent years she has held several youth coaching roles including with regional representative team the Geelong Flyers and as Head coach at Geelong College.
“Katrina has been mentored by some of the state’s best coaches, so she brings with her a wealth of knowledge, experience and the drive to take on her first senior coaching role at Queenscliff,” the club said.
“Her values and professionalism align with our club culture; she is engaging, positive and inspiring. Katrina is passionate about player welfare and her coaching philosophy is something we are very excited about.”
Daws replaces Bridgitte Burns, who held the senior coaching role for two seasons.
