Australia Day 2015 Event Listings

Australia Day 2015 is just around the corner, and USAFL Clubs are celebrating the birthplace of our great game (and some of our equally great teammates) with parties around the country.  Here is a listing of the events going on.

New York’s Aurrichio Has His Eyes on the AFL

New York Magpie Alex Aurrichio began his journey to Australia flying high from a National Championship win by the Pies this October.  Formerly an athlete at Columbia University playing soccer and baseball, Aurrichio joined the New York Magpies during the 2014 season after a showing at the USAFL Combine last April.  Having been in Melbourne for just over a month, Aurrichio is putting his effort into overdrive training with the likes of Collingwood VFL, Coburg VFL, and St. Kilda Sandringham VFL. 

Nashville to Kick Off 2015 with Winter Classic Tournament

The first ever Nashville Footy Winter Classic will take place this Saturday, January 10th at E.S. Rose Park in the Music City. What started out as an early season challenge match between the Roos and the Atlanta Kookaburras has snowballed -- pun somewhat intended -- into a larger event where all comers from the USAFL and beyond are welcome.

2015 USAFL Nationals Will Return to Austin, TX

The USAFL Executive Board is pleased to announce the 2015 USAFL National Championships is headed back to Austin, TX October 16 - 18 at Onion Creek Soccer Park. After careful review and a highly competitive bid process, the Board determined that Austin is the best destination for the tournament in 2015. The experience of the 2011 and 2013 events in Austin were fantastic and we look forward to welcoming all players, teams, officials and fans in October.

AFL Coaching Conference Opportunity

The USAFL is currently accepting submissions from coaches to represent the league at the AFL Coaching Conference in Melbourne the weekend of January 30th, 2015.

The annual conference will feature footy experts and experienced coaches discussing the game and techniques with other coaches from across Australia who want to develop their skills and help develop and improve their teams.  It's also a great opportunity for American-based coaches to keep their finger on the pulse of coaching football direct from the source.
