Tigers kick off 2022 season

It’s hard to believe the Tigers officially started the 2022 season in early March, officially welcoming AFL cult hero and Collingwood and Melbourne player Dannie Seow as the new head coach. Dannie’s dedication to the sport, club and individuals is commendable.

Following a fun and successful indoor no-tackle league, the team decided to break the year into two seasons (spring and fall), with an optional summer no-tackle league. Our matches and tournaments are locked in for the year, and the Tigers are putting in the miles in preparation for our first match of the season against the DC Eagles, NY Magpies and Philly Hawks on May 14 in Washington DC

As the head coach, I will assist everyone to be the best they can be, both as athletes and people—meaning I am here for you all on and off the field.

Next Gen footy starts strong in Denver girls' school

More than 30 middle school girls played touch footy on a turf field four mornings a week at the Girls Athletic Leadership School (GALS) in Denver, and after two months, they can catch marks, kick goals and even smother balls on par with their peers in Australia.

It all began with a footy clinic for 120 girls at the public school in early March, a partnership forged by our team president, Sara Rohner, and the school's athletic director, Danielle Ennis. After six skills sessions led by Coach Dannie Seow, Australian rules football became an official elective for the school's spring "Movement" periods and grew to include high schoolers and attending faculty as well.

The months of hard playing culminated in an exhibition match on the final Friday, Centennial Tigers vs. GALS, where the GALS students scored eight goals!

Many thanks to the staff at GALS, Danielle Ennis, Eric Messerli, Alyssa Sanchez, Leah Bock, Carol Bowar, and Carrie Donovan; the Tigers who volunteered their time, Sara Rohner, Evelyn Rabil, Erin Taylor, Deja Maestas, Taryn Lenox, Hayley Lansing, Amanda Newell, Ally Dykes and Tami Meis; and of course, the person who ran it all, Dannie Seow.

After three months of preseason training, 16 Tigers will pack mouthguards, boots and toothbrushes into Frontier-regulation-sized backpacks and fly 1,600 miles to our nation's capital for our first and second matches of the season on May 14.

Flush with oxygen rich air, the Centennial Tigers play the D.C. Eagles, New York Magpies and Philadelphia Hawks in back-to-back women's games on the Eagles' home turf.

The following day, the team and supporting members plan to tour Washington D.C., many for the first time. Brace yourselves for fantastic photos of Tigers with monuments, Tigers at the White House, Tigers in the Reflecting Pool, Tigers escorted out by the Secret…well maybe not that last one!
