Nashville Kangaroos Roll of Honor

Established 1997

The Nashville Kangaroos were incorporated in 1997 and became one of the founding clubs of USFooty, the official governing body of Australian Rules Football in the United States. From the beginning, the Kangaroos were more than just a bunch of guys looking to have a kick in the park — although that is, literally, how it started! The Kangaroos were the first club to become a legal entity, the first to elect a board of directors, the first to be awarded not-for-profit status, and it earned a series of other firsts.

This kind of success is impossible to achieve in a volunteer organization operating on a shoe-string budget without significant time and effort, significant sacrifice and dedication to the cause. The Roll of Honor is our way of memorializing those who led the way, as well as those who came along later; all of them said, "This I believe," and made sacrifices to bring the club to where it is today. To all who are listed here, and to all who have helped in many other capacities over the years, "Good on ya, Mates." We would not be here today if not for you.
