Jessica Dal Pos was recruited by Carlton in the AFL Women's competition for the 2022 season. She previously played for Greater Western Sydney, being one of their four priority selections prior to the 2016 AFL Women's draft. Her parents considered Dal Pos too small to play against the boys in under-12 football, and there was no local team for girls. She returned to football in the girls' and women's teams of the Darebin Falcons at 15, and went on to play in four Victorian Women's Football League premierships. After playing for Western Bulldogs in the first Women's AFL exhibition game in 2013, Dal Pos was delisted. Recognizing improvement in her football over the following two years, Melbourne selected Dal Pos for the AFL exhibition series during 2015.

Prior to the 2016 AFL Women's draft, Dal Pos approached Greater Western Sydney, chose to move to Sydney from Melbourne, and negotiated selection as a priority pick. Dal Pos finished the 2017 season with the second most tackles and centre clearances, and the third most clearances in the league. As well as finishing third for the 2017 AFLW Players' Most Courageous Award, Dal Pos was listed in the 2017 All-Australian team. She was awarded the Gabrielle Trainor Medal as Greater Western Sydney best and fairest.Greater Western Sydney signed Dal Pos for the 2018 season during the trade period in May 2017. It was revealed that Dal Pos was looking to leave the Giants in May 2021 because she wanted to move to Victoria to finish a paramedics course. The following month she was traded to Carlton.

Dal Pos earned a reputation as a skilful, hard-running player with outstanding ball-winning ability. A member of GWS’s leadership group since day one, and having achieved All-Australian selection in 2017, the 27-year-old and former Darebin Falcon is set to be a welcome addition to the Game Changers’ outfit in 2022.

Recruited from Ivanhoe (VIC) / Darebin Falcons (VFLW) / GWS Giants.
