The US National Women's team, the US Freedom, will be touring Australia this coming August. The team will play matches in Sydney, Cairns, Melbourne and Bendigo in Australia as the first ever tour by an US women's team to Australia. The team will be coached by Australian expatriate Wayne Kraska and US Revolution (and International Cup) representative Dan Sarbacker. The Captains are Jenny Sarbacker, Helen Spink and Tina Arend. The team is drawn from across the US, with Arizona, Atlanta, Denver, Milwaukee, Minnesota and New York clubs represented.

 

The development of Aussie Rules for women in the US has seen great expansion in the handful of years it has been underway - and it is hoped this tour will provide even more incentive for women to play the game. The tour is a major milestone in the development of women's footy not just in the US but outside Australia, and should pave the way for future international tournaments. While on the Australian tour they will be assisting in developing the game in Australia also, as the Bendigo visit is aimed to help Bendigo establish an adult women's team to complement the three junior teams already playing there.
