2013 Freedom training camp through the eyes of the coach...

I want to start this missive the same way I will end it by thanking everyone who took the time to participate over the weekend, what a fantastic turn out. The timeline shows how impressive the group was all camp long. 50 + at Masses on Friday night for dinner, 70+ at training and the games on Saturday followed by exactly 70 at our gala dinner at the Back Forty on Saturday night. A further 65+ to training on Sunday morning with 45 on the bus joined by 5 more at the races in the afternoon.

2013 USA Freedom Captain Announced

The USA Freedom coaching staff are extremely pleased to announce that Eileen Geoghegan of the Baltimore-Washington Eagles has been appointed as the new Captain of the USA Freedom women's national team.

At the 2012 49th Parallel Cup, it was announced that the reigning USA Freedom Captain, Judith Stein would be stepping down from the captaincy after 2 years at the reins. Judith was named 'Captain of the World' at the 2011 International Cup in Melbourne and her most recent efforts led the team to a momentous win over Canada at the 2012 49th Parallel Cup. Judith will continue to be a valued part of the playing squad with the Freedom in 2012.

Freedom Win at the 49th Parallel Cup

“Wow, what a great day of footy in the U.S. Congrats to the Revos for their great showings in both games and many thanks to Canada for bringing down 4 full squads, they have set the bar very high for the 2013 Parallel Cup in their homeland, bring it on” exclaimed an enthusiastic Coach Leigh Barnes.

For the first time since 2007 the USA Freedom have defeated the Canada Northern Lights! The two teams have only met 3 times prior; their first hit-out in 2007, the 2010 49th Parallel Cup and the 2011 International Cup.
