What is AFL Football?

AFL or Australian Rules Football is a game that has been unique to Australia since 1858, until now.

Australian Football or just "Footy" as it is commonly called by the Aussies or the now passionate Americans, is a game that combines the best of many other sports. It is probably the Swiss Army Knife of team sports. It is amazing !

If you can do one of the following, run, jump, catch, chase, tackle, kick or pass, then there is a place on the Savannah Hurricane Aussie Rules Footy team for you. Sign up today.

Ok, watch this video first to learn more, then sign up.

Savannah Australian Rules Football Invitational Game - June 29th 2019

The first game of Australian Rules Football in Savannah was played at Daffin Park on Saturday June 29th 2019. Players from the Savannah Hurricane, Atlanta Kookaburras, Rome Redbacks and Jacksonville Saints all came out for the historic first ever game.

The crowd relaxed in the shade as you do in Savannah, with some cool drinks, sat back and watched 4 quarters of a fantastic running, action packed Aussie Rules Football, a game most had never seen before.

So join us soon, reach out and come to practice and you too can be a part of sporting history, the next time.
Justin & ElliotWe have both played Aussie Rules Football before for the Nashville Kangaroos and the Atlanta Kookaburras respectively. But since we are both now here in Savannah we thought why not start a team here. So is the beginning of the Savannah Hurricane.

The game is so much fun and really is a game that has everything. Once you play you will be hooked.

So join us at a practice or just reach out to find out more. You really need no experience to play just a willingness to try a new challenge, get out there and have fun and maybe make life long friends.
