Stan Alves OAM (born 22 May 1946) was an Australian rules football player and coach. He played 226 games for the Melbourne Football Club in the 1970s, captaining them from 1973–1976 and being named runner-up for the Brownlow Medal in 1975, before joining North Melbourne in 1977. Legend has it that he chose to play for North Melbourne rather than Collingwood based on a coin toss. It proved to be a wise decision as North Melbourne met Collingwood in the 1977 Grand Final and, after initially playing a 76-all draw, won the replay 151–124. Alves played 40 games for North Melbourne before retiring.


Alves became coach of St Kilda in 1994. St Kilda won the 1996 AFL Ansett Australia Cup – the club's first AFL Cup win and the club's first major success in 30 years.

Alves went on to coach St Kilda to its 2nd Minor Premiership and first Grand Final in 26 years in 1997, earning the AFL Coach of the Year award. Alves' coaching career at St Kilda ended at the end of the 1998 AFL premiership season.
