East vs West


The response to the East vs. West announcement has been great and many potential players have already registered for the weekend of June 20-22. Player registrations will close on Friday, May 23 to enable a quick announcement of squads, so get your nomination in now!


If you are attending the coaching course you will need to be at the hotel by 7pm on Friday night and allow time for you to catch your return flight after the course finishes at 12pm on Sunday, June 22. All potential Revolution players are expected to attend the coaching course. You do not have to be a player to attend the coaching course and all are welcome.


All registrations must be with coachingdirector@usfooty.com

Please state your name, which team you represent and whether you are nominating as a player, for the coaching course or both.

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. All teams west of and including Dallas will represent the West. All teams east of and including Kansas City will be considered East. 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). This weekend is the only official opportunity for prospective Revolution players to display their wares in front of the full Revolution selection committee.


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.


Respective East and West jumpers will also be available for purchase to selected players and will be on sale at www.usfootystore.com for the special pre-weekend price of $45.00 once squads are announced.  Selected players have first right of refusal and if they decide not to buy their jumper they will then be made available to the public. These are sure to become a collectors item as both the USAFL and the East vs. West All Star Weekend grow over the coming years.


Selected Players, once the squads are announced you will be able to purchase your jumper  for only $45.00 at usfootystore. See side table (in original posting here) for sizes and corresponding nos. Only after selected players have been given first right of refusal and have decided not to purchase their jumper will they be made available to the general public.
