Welcome to the Austin Valkyries Alumni page.
Alumni Social Memberships
There’s now a new way for alumni to stay involved with the Valkyries! We’re opening up social memberships to all alumni and supporters! What this means is you’re privy to all our listserv emails (digest format; one a day max, if any; optional), you’re entitled to a warm up shirt, invited to any event the Valkyries hold for the players, access to order any team kit the players may order, and most importantly, you’re eligible to run for any officer position on the board during annual elections!
Social membership will cost the same as current players ($100 per season) but as an introductory offer, you can become a social member for just $50! As a card carrying member, you can stay connected to your favorite team and help us fundraise at the same time. WIN-WIN! If this is something you’re interested in click “Buy Now” below.

The group listerv will have only 1 to 2 messages a month and will solely used as a communication of Alumni events, Game times, Fund Raising Events or kudos to players that have made Select Side or National Team venues. We appreciate your support and patience as we work towards the goal of involving all veteran Valkyries and/or support groups.
If you know someone that might be interested in this group…feel free to pass their information onto Wendy Young at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will add them.

From Kim Davis: West Championship tourney in 1998 or 99. Dallas was still defunct and weren’t cipped, so we picked up some of their players to cipp with us so we’d have a full side for West. The fields were covered in goose poop because rain had forced us off the nice pitches at the University in Kansas City and onto some very rural secondary fields on the Missouri side of the river. We drove up there in two vans, and one van got lost in Dallas and nearly ended up in Texarkana on the way home. It was so muddy that year that Mona made us wash the mud off our bodies using parking lot puddles and our own dirty socks before she’d let us get into the rental vans. Luckily, she had also made us set aside a clean set of clothes so we didn’t have to ride back to the hotel in our knickers.
From Janna Swain: This is from the Valks’ first trip to Western Regionals, was the 98-99
