Life Members and Hall of Fame Class of 2022

25th Anniversary Life Member Inductees

Life Membership of the USAFL is a recognition of an individual’s excellent service to football in the USA. It is given for a combination of service beyond normal expectations, tenure and specific skills that has a national component. Life Membership is an Australian tradition of recognition and is included as part of the USAFL Hall of Fame.

On any given year maybe one or two people are awarded Life Membership. To highlight the significance of the 25th Anniversary we recognized six new members.

25th Anniversary Club Heritage Teams

At its very core the USAFL is a club-based organization and the clubs are the lifeblood of the league. We wanted a special way to celebrate the Leagues 25th Anniversary by recognizing those at the Club level that have made a special contribution.

We asked every club to nominate a Club Heritage Member who epitomizes the spirit of their club. Someone that has been instrumental in making your club what it is today. If the club has a men’s and women’s side your club has selected two Heritage members, one representing each team.

What's on Tap: 9/9/23

Cue up the Europe, we're entering the final countdown.

With five weeks until Nationals, the seeding committee's computers are starting to whirr.  Time to dust off the hard drives, I reckon.  And so we come upon the last big weekend of matches of season 2023, though there are still some captivating matchups after this weekend.  A bunch of regional rivarlies are in store, and one big milestone by a pioneer in the women's game.

What's On Tap: June 3rd

June is well and truly bustin’ out all over.

We start to move into the summer months of the year, and the action is invariably hotting up along with the mercury.  We’re now three weekends away from the first ever USAFL Super Regionals in Kansas City, but before that, there are some blockbuster rounds of Aussie Rules ahead of us.

April showers bring May flowers, and May flowers brought us four full weekends for Aussie Rules goodness.  As we get set for a monster month of June, which includes a super weekend and the first Super Regionals, here is a look back at what transpired on the footy ovals of North America:

What's On Tap: May 20 2023

The final weekend before Memorial Day is here, and a thrilling month of May concludes with two more tournaments, an two exciting full-game matchups, and preparations for the Parallel Cup from the national women’s team.

Here’s a quick look at what’s on tap for the weekend:

What's On Tap: Mother's Day Round

It's Mother's Day weekend, and on Sunday we'll all celebrate our mums.  But before that, the first of two big weekends before the Memorial Day break will unfold.  Three regional events that should make for a fantastic day out in Richmond, Hamilton, and Los Angeles.

Here's a look at what's on tap:

AFL Canada Cup (women’s)
Saturday/Sunday from 9am EDT – Mohawk Sports Park, Hamilton, ON

What's On Tap: May 6, 2023

As we head into May and more teams start to stir out of their slumber, we have three matches on the docket here featuring some old school rivalries.  Each of the teams here were founded at the end of the 1990s, and continue to write the legendary battles between them.  Our friends in Canada also have a tournament happening in Ottawa as we prepare to welcome our friends from La Belle Province down to Florida for Nationals in October.

St Louis Blues (0-0) vs Kansas City Power (0-2)

What's On Tap: Anzac Day Round 2023

After weeks of training, shaking of the dust and rust of the off season, and staying warm for a run, the time has come to kickstart the 2023 USAFL Season.

And what way to do it than around a time that is traditionally surrounded by Aussie Rules Football.

ANZAC Day is a solemn commemoration of those who served their country.  The sport is played overseas on the day between soldiers and veterans as a celebration of the Australian culture.

What's On Tap: May 21, 2022

The weather is getting warmer, and that must mean footy season is hotting up with it.

It’s the final weekend before Memorial Day, and the last before the USAFL Regional Tournament Series kicks off in Philadelphia in two weeks’ time.  A month’s worth of full season football is now arrears, and as a heatwave comes to the west coast and the mercury goes up, so doe the Aussie Rules action here in the USAFL.
