Between the Posts: Footy.

In less than two weeks, I will be hitting the skies and heading to Sydney, Australia, for the AFL Women's Talent Search. If you aren't sure what that is, think NFL combine for athletes who didn't play football in college.  We will be tested in a variety of fitness areas, including a 20m sprint, a running vertical jump, a standing vertical jump, the AFL agility test, and the ever lovely beep test.  For those of you who aren't sure what a beep test entails, just imagine running back and forth through the 7th circle of Hell and you'll be pretty close to spot on.

Kickin' with Klatt: The One with all the Running

In just two weeks, I will be heading to Sydney, along with Kim Hemenway, to participate in the AFL Women’s Talent Search. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically an AFL combine for the new AFL women’s league that will be starting in 2017.

USA Revolution to Hold March Camp in Los Angeles

The USA Revolution is happy to announce the first of 5 camps for 2016 season to be held in Los Angeles CA on March 4-6th. 

The goal of these camps for 2016 will be to identify the top players in the USAFL to represent the USA Revolution on and off the field. 

We will name the top 50 players at the 2016 USAFL National Tournament in October, to play for the USA Revolution in the 2017 International Cup.

We would also like to invite any coach that would like to attend.  We plan on implementing a collaborative coaching system with all coaches across the USA. 

Kickin' With Klatt - An Unexpected Footy Journey

In 2013, Katie Klatt moved to Sacramento, California, to begin her career as a registered nurse at the University of California-Davis Children’s Hospital. 

Little did she know that a move to answer one calling would spawn another; this time as an Australian Rules football player.  Klatt didn’t even know about Footy until she happened upon a YouTube video of the sport. Just two years later, she has become one of the USAFL’s best defensive players, and has risen to the role vice-captain for both the Sacramento Suns and the USA Freedom national team.

Now, she’s preparing to take an even bigger leap.
