Quebec, Portland, Calgary, San Diego Claim Nationals Flags

Divisions 2-4 in the men’s and women’s divisions may play the undercard to the top flight, but they certainly do not lack anything in terms of importance or intensity.  Old champions in Calgary and San Diego rode again, while the ever growing footy programs in Portland and Quebec raised cups for the very first time on that hallowed weekend in October.

Our look at Nationals weekend concludes with the final four divisions:

Sarasota, Florida to host 2016 USAFL National Championships

In the wake of our most successful Nationals ever, we are excited to announce Sarasota, Florida, as the location of the 2016 USAFL Nationals.

To be held the weekend of October 15 & 16 at the Premier Soccer Complex, the location boasts the largest space and highest quality fields ever used by the USAFL. With the ability to accommodate five full sized fields (plus smaller fields) on laser level Bermuda grass, the quality of all fields will be exactly the same, with no difference between divisions. 

Crows, Lady Bulldogs Rule Again in Austin

To win a Division 1 championship at the USAFL Nationals, it takes a combination of skill, perseverance, and, dare it is said, a bit of luck,

The two teams that climbed to the top of Mount Football in the plains of Austin, Texas this past weekend needed all of it.  They had been there before, after all.  Austin had been used to success on home ground.  The Denver Lady Bulldogs, well... they were just used to success.  

Holy Cow - Day One at the USAFL Nationals

That’s what was on the lips of most folks watching today in Austin. 

All of the talk about seeding and which team deserved to be higher up was thrown out the window and floated away into the hot October heat of central Texas.

Fourth seeds went boom, top seeds went flop, and for the first time that anyone can remember, including your humble author, there are no dead rubbers heading into Sunday at Nationals in any of the divisions being contested.

A Decade in the Sun - Nationals Women's Division Turns 10

This weekend, over 170 women representing 16 clubs will take part in the 2015 USAFL National Championships in Austin.

They also represent numerous municipalities beyond those on their jumpers.  They are from a diverse multitude of backgrounds, vocations, ethnicities, and creeds, but they are united by the love of Australian Rules football and the life changing benefits that it has yielded.

For the group taking part in Austin, however, they represent just how far the women’s game has come in the USA in just a decade.
