Our Club

The Portland Steelheads (men) and Sockeyes (women) represent Portland, Oregon in the sport of Australian Rules Football, or “footy”. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We play at several different levels throughout the year including local non-contact (Ausball) and full field games (P/WAFL) as well as multiple tournaments throughout North America.

Off the field, the club holds events throughout the year. They include regular viewings of professional footy games, activities celebrating Australian holidays and culture, and other social events.

New players and club members are always welcome. No experience is necessary to come out and have a kick and anyone new to the sport will be given plenty of time with an assistant coach to learn the skills and ask questions. You can also reach our team at recruiting@portlandfooty.com for more information.
