Revolution Training Camp 2013

The USA Revolution, the men's national team, are currently planning a training camp to be held in Los Angeles over the weekend of March 9-10.

The purpose of the training camp is to select and prepare a squad to play against Canada in the 49th Parallel Cup, to be held in Canada on August 3.

Revolution Development Squad to Play Canada

The USA Revolution, fresh from their success at the 2011 Australian Football League (AFL) International Cup, are busily preparing themselves to take on Canada in the 49th Parallel Cup, to be held in Dublin, OH, on August 4.

The 49th Parallel Cup is played between the U.S. and Canada each of the two years preceding an International Cup year, the next being in 2014. In 2010 an Under 23 Revolution team was drawn together for the very first time and played Canada as a curtain raiser to the women’s and men’s 49th Parallel Cup games. 

2011 USAFL Results Overview

2011 Nationals Medals

2011 was a big year for Footy in the USA with a record number of both players and teams participating during the year. The Denver Bulldogs took out both Division I and the Women's divisions at this year's National Championships. Additionally the USA Revolution and Freedom players stood out, collecting many of this year's tournament honors.

Thanks to Kat

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kat so very much for all of her great efforts in promoting womens footy in the US. I believe I forgot to do so  in Melbourne, but when Rich thanked Kat for all of her accomplishments in getting the USAFL womens program to the stage that it is now, it almost brought the house down.

USAFL Player Development Clinic

2009 Clinic, Mason, OHDue to lack of registrations, the Player Development clinic has been canceled.

The Pasture is that Way

The 2011 Women's International Cup of Australian Football was a roller coaster of emotions.  What better way to end my playing career with the Freedom than the first women's International Cup? I was expecting the feelings of elation that come with seeing a dream come true.  And I knew that I would also be feeling the sadness of knowing that this was a farewell tour.

How We Got Here

When we established the first women's competition outside of Australia in 2003, Leigh Swansborough and I had a vision of women from across the globe participating in such an event.

Revolution Finish Top Four in Impressive International Cup Run

The Revolution came up short in their bid for third place going down to the New Zealand Hawks 12.4 (76) to 6.5 (41).  it was a short turn around for the Revos after their hard hitting game against Papua New Guinea just 2 days earlier.  Looking to match their best ever finish at the International Cup the boys came out strong and confident in their game plan.  Unfortunately the Hawks had done their homework and were prepared for what the Revos had in store.

Brent Mergen, Jon Loring, Luke Nemeth and Pat Miller stood strong in the backline.  Steve Fashant and Mel Chen put in a tough day's work in the middle, while Bryan Dragus found his form again, kicking another 4 goals.

Freedom Capture Third Place in Successful International Cup Debut

The Freedom have claimed third place in the inaugural women's International Cup after defeating Papua New Guinea Flame 4.3 (27) to 1.2 (8).  In a re-match of second round clash the Freedom experience again proved to be too much for the young Flame side.  The Freedom midfield controlled the game with gutsy performances by Eileen Geoghegan, Becky Kraft, Helen Spink and Jen Cravens.  Leading goal kicker Lindsey Kastanek added 2 more to her team leading total.
