The overall character of a football community, be it local, national, or international, is a sum of its parts.Â Usually, we only see the high profile ones â€“ the players on the ground, the coaches, and those in the upper reaches of the administrative hierarchy.Â But the living and breathing dynamic of a club or a league also includes and relies on umpires, clubpeople, and fans for continuity.Â For if it wasnâ€™t for those, this communityÂ wouldnâ€™t be here.
For the third straight season, the USAFL will travel around the country bringing exciting Australian football action to three American cities.
The 2017 USAFL Regionals series sees the best menâ€™s and womenâ€™s teams in the country converge to see who will lift the hardware in a pivotal series of midseason matches.
Last year saw 26 clubs and several hundred players take to grounds across the country, and this year the hope is that more teams and footballers will get involved to help continue to make these among the best events on the USAFL calendar.
Australia Day commemorates the landing of the the first fleet of British ships in Port Jackson Harbour, Sydney, in 1788. Â Traditionally celebrated with cricket, barbeques, cold beverages, and the like, the fesitivities will not be limited just to Australia.

Following the completion of the 2016 USAFL season, many clubs across the country held year end dinners, banquets, and presentations to recognize the best players and clubpeopleÂ in local tradition. Â For many, this truly brought down the curtain on this season which began some nine or so months ago (if not earlier), and which will dawn again in some weeks' time.
