Welcome to DM Roosters

The Des Moines Roosters is Iowa's only Australian Football club! The team was formed in March of 2009, by 2 brothers and a native Australian who were not willing to let go of the sport they'd grown to love. As a relatively new team and sport to the area, the Roosters are always seeking new recruits, fans and volunteers to become a part of their community.

The Roosters have become more than just a team and are building the Australian Football culture here in Des Moines. The sport - difficult to compare to American sport, is governed by the USAFL - www.usafl.com and partners with its professional affiliate the AFL - www.afl.com.au. The Roosters compete against other midwest teams including the Minnesota Freeze, the Kansas City Power and the Milwaukee Bombers and will be competing in tournaments in Kansas City, and Madison.
