A Letter from the President to all former USAFL Players

Dear Former USAFL Player,

The 2014 AFL International Cup (IC14) is less than 14 days away. As you know, our players and staff are all volunteers and must fund their own trips to represent the USAFL at IC14, where it is estimated each member will spend a minimum of $4,000.  

At 17 years of age, the USAFL is now old enough to establish a vibrant and functional Alumni. To kick off our Alumni drive, the USAFL is offering exclusive admission to the VIP section of the 2014 USAFL Nationals in Dublin, Ohio for any donations of $50 or more. Participants will be treated to free Coopers products on both the Saturday and Sunday at Nationals.

Freeze Continue to Roll in 2014 with a Five-Goal Win in Des Moines

There was not to be a home three-peat for the Roosters, who have won their last two matches against the Freeze in West Des Moines. The depth of the Minnesota side was on display, traveling in good numbers, but with some talented outs. The Roosters had a two-goal lead early in the second quarter before the Freeze roared back with the next four goals to take a fragile halftime lead. After an even and hard-fought third term, Minnesota iced the match in the final quarter with a four-goal performance to continue their undefeated 2014 campaign.

Austin Crows Take the Tournament of Champions

By air and by road, the Austin Crows made the 957 mile journey over the weekend from the Live Musical Capital of the World to the famous Music City.  In what was billed as the "Tournament of Champions" the Crows took a young but eager roster to Nashville to put their talent to the test against the 2013 Division II National Champion Columbus Jackaroos and hometown Division I power, Kangaroos.  Though at times the sun was baking, the players were fortunate to get decent cloud cover and low winds throughout the afternoon making the day ripe for some great footy.  All three teams showed up with something to prove, and the footy was of a very high level and especially physical for only the middle of the season, and all teams left with plenty of bruises and sore bodies from the day's hard and tough competition.
