East vs West clash

The USAFL has announced that the inaugural East vs. West All Star Weekend has changed dates to June 20, 21 and 22 in Orange County, CA. The change of date has come about due to that weekend being the least conflicting with USAFL teams existing schedules and will coincide with the CAFL Grand Final.

A coaching course has also been added to the weekend and with the recent cancellation of the ARAFURA Games and U/23 Revolution trip, this makes the East vs. West All Star game one of the highlights of the USAFL year, second only to the Nationals. As this is the only official selection weekend for this years Revolution team, all current and prospective players are expected to attend.

The East vs. West All Star weekend is a 50/50 concept where the best Australians in the land will line up with their American counterparts to represent their geographical zone in an All Star format. There will be two East vs. West games and the CAFL Grand Final, all played on Saturday, June 21. Prospective Revolution players that play in the CAFL Grand Final will not be expected to double up in games (as the Revolution selection committee will be watching them play in the CAFL Grand Final anyway).

The coaching course will run over the weekend with a three hour session on Friday night (start 7pm), three hours on Saturday morning and a final four hour session on Sunday morning, finishing at 12pm. All prospective Revolution players will be expected to attend the coaching course.
