U23 Revolution

The USAFL in conjunction with USA Athletes International is excited to announce the entry of an under 23 Revolution (US National) Australian Football Team for the 2003 Arafura Games in Darwin, Australia May 17 24.

This team will consist of the best footy players in the US who are US citizens and under 23 years of age. This team represents the future of footy in the US and maybe even the future of footy in Australia! It is hoped that this is the beginning of a great relationship between the USAFL, USA Athletes International and the Arafura Games.

USA Athletes International is coordinating the US Team for the Arafura Games and is sending teams in soccer, volleyball, basketball and a number of other sports. USA Athletes International (http://www.usaai.org) will pay for the Head Coach and an Assistant Coach to attend the Games, it will also provide travel, accommodation and logistical support.

Nominations for Head Coach of the U23 Revolution team are now open!

The panel consists of Denis Ryan (Revolution Coach), Paul OKeeffe (At-Large and College Development), Chris Adams (Secretary and Game Development), and Seth McElvaney (SEAFL President). The selection of Head Coach will be based on the following criteria:
