The USAFL has released videos of the 2003 Championship Tournament including the historic first women's match.
It's official...the Orange County Bombshells are now part of the California Australian Football League (CAFL). This is the first women's footy league in the USA. Yet another historical event for Women's Footy USA. The Bombshells will split into two teams and play 10 rounds of footy throughout the CAFL season. The purpose of our first season in the CAFL is to recruit more players, so we can expand to 4-6 teams by 2005. read more »
The Orange County Bombshells will be playing in the annual Turkey Shootout organized by the Orange County Bombers at 10:00AM on Sunday November 23 at Heritage Park in Irvine, CA. Anyone interested in playing women's Aussie Rules is welcomed and encouraged to play. Contact Leigh for more information.
A co-ed rec game will be played under the modified rules before the Metro grand final on Saturday, Nov 9, at 1pm at the DC polo grounds, corner of Independence Ave. and Ohio Dr. Its to see if we can get enough interest to get a rec league (and by progression, a women's team) going for next year. There will be a clinic first and then a short game at 1.30pm. There will be no tackling and it'll just be some fun.
