TEXAS LADIES, THERE'S A NEW SPORT IN TOWN! >>>READ MORE HERE:

You may not have heard of Australian Rules Football or 'Footy' (No, it’s not Rugby!), however it's Australia’s biggest and most popular professional and amatuer sport for participation, spectatator attendance and television viewership! It has been played for more than 150 years and over the last 30 years has expanded into over 30 countries at an amateur level. In 2017, the first ever professional Women’s League(AFLW) was launched in Australia and it was a huge success!

The United States Australian Football League (USAFL) has a very healthy Australian Football competition, featuring over 40 men’s and women’s teams across the country. See more info via https://usafl.com. The state of Texas boasts 3 strong USAFL Mens clubs in the Houston Lonestars, Austin Crows and Dallas Magpies - however no women’s team amongst them. It's time for Texas Ladies to take the stage!

We are looking for women of ages 18+ and no experience is necessary. However sporting backgrounds in basketball, soccer, lacrosse, roller derby, kickball, rugby, touch rugby, volleyball, gaelic football are a plus. Our goal is to establish a Texas team by October this year to represent the great state of Texas at the Nationals Championship in San Diego. There is even the chance to represent the USA at an International level in the future.
 
Training & Introductory sessions are held every Wednesday nights 6.30pm-8.00pm and Sundays 4pm-5.30pm at Bendwood Park(see map below) with an aim for a marquee game with new particpants from Dallas & Austin on August 26th in Austin.  You can Pre-Register or just turn up to one of our training sessions. Bring fitness attire and trainers or cleats if you have them. 
 
Come out and try this fun and highly entertaining game!
