Wayne Kraska Retires as US Freedom Coach

The adage is that, "All good things must come to an end". One of those good things ended at the 2010 USAFL National Championships. US Freedom Head Coach Wayne Kraska announced his retirement from the USA Freedom.

Prior to and during his reign as Freedom coach, Kraska built a dynasty in Atlanta where he coached the Lady Kookaburras to wins in the first three USAFL Women's National Championships (2005-2007). During this period, Kraska was integral in coaching and developing some of the league's most competitive players. In fact, the Kookaburras did not lose a game until they were narrowly defeated by Calgary in the 2008 Grand Final.

2010 Nationals Wrapped Up!


Friday, October 22, 2010 - The 2010 USAFL National Tournament may be over but the winners are still grinning. This year’s tournament proved to be a huge success particularly for the New York Magpies who took out both Division I and Division IV Championship Titles.

"The weekend was the culmination of a lot of hard work by the entire club” said Ed McCormick, President of the New York Magpies, “and the Magpie family is very proud of the efforts from its Men's, Women's and Reserves sides; all were tested against incredibly tough opponents.” continued McCormick.

Are Magpies taking over the world?

Skipper of the Collingwood Magpies, Nick Maxwell just happened to be vacationing in New York recently and was spotted in a bar by the New York Magpies Ruckman.

The win for both the New York and Collingwood Magpies seems to have strengthened the bond between the two clubs and will continue to do so in 2011. New York are getting plenty of support from downunder.
