Suns Tackle

The Sacramento Suns are kicking off the metro tackle league in May with two free open days on May 13th and 20th. New players are welcome to come check it out during these open days or at any time throughout the season! We are gearing up for a tournament in Medford, Oregon on June 3rd and the Regional Tournament in Seattle on July 15th.

About the League

This is Sacramento’s local Australian Football league with matches hosted throughout the summer. Players are divided onto one of four pods and each week two pods combine to form a team. There are six rounds where all four pods will have the opportunity to play and pair up twice. The finale will be a day of draft, with the two highest ranked pods selecting players from the remaining pool for the final game!

Players are encouraged to attend weekly practices which are held on Tuesday evenings 6-8 pm at North Natomas Community Park starting May 9th.

Starting in May, on Wednesday evenings, we are offering free fitness sessions at Tahoe Park from 6-7:30 pm.

Metro players often play at the next level as a Sun for our competitive USAFL travel teams.
