The USAFL is a grassroots, amateur sports organization dedicated to the development of and participation in Australian football. The organization is focused on the promotion and awareness of Australian football and Aussie culture and has created a sense of community among USAFL clubs and club members. The league also works to foster womens and junior programs across the United States.
When a small group of Bay Area footy followers transformed the Santa Cruz 'Roos into the Golden Gate Australian Football League in early 2002, they had high hopes for the new league. The GGAFL enters its seventh season in 2008 with an expanded schedule, four solid clubs, and continued enthusiasm for the future.
