With our inaugural season in 2011, the WWCFL is the first all women's inter provincial tackle football league in Western Canada.
The program's roots are based in Alberta with the Calgary Rockies. The Rockies started over a decade ago and were the pioneers for women's tackle football in Western Canada. Year two of the Rockies, the team invited a member of the now Manitoba Fearless and a few of the current Edmonton Storm to their "pre-season" camp (even though they had no season) and the rest, as they say, is history.
Almost a decade has passed since the Rockies set the wheels in motion. Hundreds of practices were held, with only a few games each year. We held on for our lives until a league could be started.
Calgary is now home to the Rage and there are currently five teams in Alberta, two in Saskatchewan and two in Manitoba. The nine teams of dedicated football junkies of the WWCFL is a dream come true for every female that has ever dreamt of playing football but never had the chance. We've come a long way and we're here to stay!!
