Join us for the co-ed, non-contact version of Australia’s favorite game. Ausball is a game based on Australian Football (which is NOT rugby). It is a fun-filled, energetic, co-educational, tag version of the game. This laid back social league is a great way for beginners from children to adults to try the sport. New players are mixed in with veteran players to ensure healthy competition, and skills training is provided for all new players.
What is Ausball?
Imagine soccer, volleyball and basketball rolled into one cool game where everyone gets to be the quarterback at the same time. Another way to think about it is that Ausball is like Ultimate Frisbee, with a few twists. The ball is passed quickly from player to player by either handpassing or kicking. There is no turnover rule, so the ball is almost always “live” resulting in a fast, free flowing game where everyone is involved. Scoring is usually frequent, so games are not only fun to play, but fast and exciting to watch!
The rules are simple and easy to learn (it will take about 10 minutes) and NO EXPERIENCE is required. In fact, we encourage it as the game is designed for complete novices!
Ausball has seen significant success since its inception in 2006 in Washington D.C. as a co-educational, tag version of the game of Australian Football League incorporating most skills used in Australian Football, as well as mimic the style of play without the physical contact.
