Portland Sockeyes – Australian Rules Women’s Team
2019 marks the sixth season of our women’s team – the Portland Sockeyes. Women’s footy has seen tremendous growth in the United States as well as Australia in recent years, leading to the launch of the AFL Women’s league in Australia in 2017.
The Sockeyes have won consecutive USAFL Division 2 National Championships in 2015, 2016 & 2017, as well as the 2016 & 2018 Western Regional competitions. In 2015 the Sockeyes brought two players to Nationals and played with Calgary to win their first championship, while in 2016 it was players from other cities who filled in with a predominantly Sockeyes squad to once again win Division 2. In 2017 the Sockeyes went on to win a 3rd consecutive National Championship in San Diego, California while joined by players of the Philadelphia Lady Hawks.
2018 was a historic year for the Sockeyes who fielded a full team at Nationals allowing them to compete in Division 1 for the first time in their short history!
The Sockeyes are looking to expand on their successes, so any and all potential players are invited to come give footy a try! No experience necessary.
