Columbus Jillaroos Officially Inaugurated

On a beautiful sunny spring day, seven lucky women came out to be a part of the first ever women's Aussie Rules practice/social/meeting ever in Ohio. Jamie, Tonya, Kristi, Sara, Megan(not pictured), Julie and Stefanie wrote themelves into future footy lore as the inaugural core that can say they will have literally been there from the beginning. Coaches Chet Ridenour and Alan Gardner and Jackaroos supporters Scoota & Santosh helped guide these women over the basics of handballing, and kicking. Did some drills and even got some action in an "ultimate footy-esque" game. They posed for team shots, and headed to BW3s afterwards for food & drink, while bonding over "2 Truths & A lie," sharing and creating nicknames, and dividing up homework to jump-start this team before they meet again.

  • Next Training: Tues, May 18th, 6pm, Tuttle Park
  • (Open invite required - meaning you have to invite at least 1 friend out with you!)
