Coddington wears the number 7 when playing and is a guard.
Coddington played her junior basketball in the Australian Capital Territory. In 2006, she was named the ACT Junior Female Basketball Player of the Year. She competed in the U-20 Australian National Championships, where she was the tournament's leading scorer. As a junior player, she was on the roster for a game for the Canberra Capitals against a Japanese touring team, which included four members of Japan's national team.
In 2006, Coddington was the captain of Radford College's basketball team.
Coddington played collegiate basketball in the United States for Utah State, where she was a "stand out player." She wore number 13 for the team. During the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 seasons, she started every game for the team. As a member of the team, she earned several honours including being named to the 2010 Western Athletic Conference All-WAC Defensive Team, and to the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Academic All-WAC.
Coddington signed with the Canberra Capitals for the 2011/2012 season in June 2011, around the same time that Lauren Jackson signed with the Capitals to play for them in 2012/2013. Coddington was expected to play the role of point guard and shooting guard. She participated in the team's first training session for the season on 13 September 2011 at the Belconnen Basketball Centre. It was her first season playing for the Canberra Capitals, and she played in her first match during the first game of the season when she played five minutes. She made her second appearance five weeks into the season. In that game, a match against West Coast Waves, she played eight minutes, made two assists and scored a three-point basket. She also played in the November match against the Australian Institute of Sport that was played in Albury, New South Wales. The expectation was that later in the season she would be able to come off the bench and play a similar role to Nicole Hunt.
In 2006, Coddington was a member of the Australian U-19 "Gems" team.
