Calgary Kookaburras

West Coast Wildcats v Alberta

April 28, 2012

Part of the Men's traditional BC Cup we had the opportunity to showcase our Women at 1pm at Burnaby Lakes Rugby Fields.

We started off really well on an unfamiliar field, size and 18 a side and after we loaned Calgary 4 players as they were short. Marlena scored a great goal and we added a couple of behinds which had us up by 8 points at quarter time.

Off the beaten path — Aussie Rules

Scott Fisher | Calgary Sun | June 21, 2011

It’s one of the toughest sports known to man.

And women.

Australian Rules football isn’t just for big, hairy, toothless, testosterone-driven men anymore.These ladies can get down and dirty, too.

Calgarian Caitlin Kidd got involved in the sport after watching her older siblings.

“I had three brothers who were already playing and they encouraged me,” Kidd said.

To the uninitiated, the sport may resemble a form of on-field anarchy, but Australian rules football actually contains the elements of several well-known competitive activities.

“What I like about it is that it combines aspects of a lot of different sports,” said Red Deer native Caitlin Kidd, 27, a member of Canada’s Australian rules football national women’s team, the Northern Lights.


Calgary Coaching Positions

The Calgary Women’s Australian Football team, the Calgary Kookaburras, are currently looking to fill a Head Coach position and two Assistant coaching positions for the 2011 season.

The team is looking for individuals who have a strong knowledge of the game with the ability to create effective practices using a variety of drills to increase our fitness and game strategy.


Denver wins 2010 USAFL Nationals

Sunday's weather looked to be a repeat of Saturday's: hot and sunny.  Four teams made it through the semifinal and two others would battle it out to avoid taking home the wooden spoon.  After the first day, it seemed like the two pool winners Calgary/Montreal and New York/Baltimore would be the favorites against the second seeds from the opposite pool.

Calgary/Montreal vs Columbus/Arizona

Despite the forecast of upper 80's and not a cloud to be seen, the morning dew definitely made the ball slick in the opening game.  This lead to a scrappy low scoring affair but the more seasoned Calgary/Montreal superclub won comfortably over the inexperienced Hawkaroos from Columbus and Arizona.
