Looking to get fit, learn a fun new sport and meet a great bunch of ‘blokes’ and ‘sheilas’? We are a group of Aussies, Texans, Canadians, Irish and various others in Houston who get together on a weekly basis for fun and exercise around the ‘Greatest Game on Earth’ – Australian Rules Football. Also known as AFL, Aussie Rules, and Footy. All are welcome to come out and have a kick any time.
We are looking for anyine that wants to learn our great game and have a run around, a kick or handpass. You don't necessarily have to want to play in the full contact games - just participating in our club and having fun is welcome.
We are also looking for serious players who want to take it to the next level and play in the US Australian Rules Football League. Our goal is to enter the Houston Australian Rules Football Club into the USAFL Nationals competition each year.
Our schedule will involve playing approx 6-10 games per year against teams such as Baton Rouge, Dallas, Austin & Ft Lauderdale.
The team is comprised of mostly young professionals – a mix of American, Irish and Australian players that can introduce you to the basics and necessary skills of the game. We currently meet up once or twice a week for a run and a kick of the footy. The game is physical and easy to learn with great a workout involved.
We are also welcoming spectators and club supporters who enjoy watching a great sport and participating in fun social events at various events around Houston.
