The biggest footy tournament outside of Australia. There are 4 mens' divisions and 1-2 womens' divisions. Teams from all over the USA and Canada come to play in this exciting event. The Kangaroos have had great success at the tournament, most recently winning the mens Division 2 in 2016.
Saturday and Sunday, October 21st and 22nd, 2017. Travel takes a full day so plan to book off the Friday and Monday (and probably Tuesday so you can stay and party with the team for the “Mad Monday” tradition).
San Diego, California.
You are responsible for your flights and spending money in San Diego. Previously, the club has assisted players in the costs involved for hotels and hire cars during the tournament.
Anyone who wants to go to US Nationals needs to register with USAFL here. This must be done at the beginning of the season in order to collect points. Any games played before your register will NOT count in your point collection. Please note, registering for the Calgary club is not the same as registering for USAFL.
All players need to earn 6 points in order to be eligible to play at Nationals.
- Metro games (Bears vs. Cowboys vs. Wolves) = 1 point/game (you can earn a max. of 2 metro game points per year).
- Tournaments = 2 points/tournament.
We will monitor your points but it is your responsibility to ensure that you play enough games to earn 6 points.
Speak to any current player for more information, they'll be happy to let you know how awesome the tournament is!
