The Sacramento Australian Rules Football Club is in its fourth year, and this season the club’s members have decided to expand their presence.

The club is recruiting new players, particularly from colleges and universities in the area, and representatives of the team have extended the opportunity to try out to City College students, according to club co-founder Amy Bishop. The Sacramento Screamers is recruiting both men and women to join its team.

“Australian football has not been noticed by college kids,” said Bishop. “We are really keen to rectify this by hopefully playing games at the colleges, inviting college students to attend our free practices.”

The SARFC is a member of the United States Australian Football League, the national governing body of Australian Football, known as “footy” for short, which consists of more than 30 clubs and 60 teams across the United States, including the Boston Demons, Austin Crows and the Sacramento Screamers. The Screamers, formed in 2009, include separate men’s and women’s teams.

Starting May 19, matches will be played at Nugget Field in Davis Saturdays and at various venues throughout the region. Starting in April, the club will also run spring, summer and fall co-ed, tag footy leagues on Tuesday evenings at McKinley Park in East

Matt Bishop, Screamers head coach, is also the head coach for the USA Revolution national men’s team. The national team finished fourth at the Australian Football League International Cup in August. Bishop said he is very positive about the progress being made in the sport as well as the Sacramento area.

“This is a big step for the club. We went from around 30 players in 2009 to over 100 in 2010 and 2011,” said Matt Bishop. “It’s time for Sacramento to step it up and show the rest of the USAFL clubs what we are made of.”

The Sacramento women’s tackle league will consist of two or three teams and the men’s tackle league will consist of four teams once the season begins.

Both the men’s and women’s teams from Sacramento will play many games on the road in different venues throughout the country, according to Amy Bishop.

The Screamers will play in Las Vegas, Denver and SanFrancisco. The Sacramento representative teams will play at the end of the year in the USAFL National Tournament, held every year in October. This year it will be held in Mason, Ohio.
