These women banded together and became a family. They practiced in empty parking lots....under street abandoned warehouses....any place they could get together to learn about the game and practice their skills. They worked hard....put in hours and hours of learning the to make a to catch and throw a to run a trap....a slant....they practiced and practiced. Then the big day came....their first game. Most were, friends, fans were out would they had not arrived until just a few practices prior to the game....some had never taken or given a hit or tackle. They stood outside the locker room....stood together as a family of women with one common play a game to the best of their ability. But what they really were making was History.....and the women of the Force continue to make history year after year. In each of our four seasons, the Chicago Force has made the playoffs toward the National Championship.

Is this the year that the Force will go all the way....become the 2007 IWFL Champions? All the elements are in place....good coaching....a strong core of veterans...many promising rookies ... all talented and dedicated women. This is our year.....the year that the Chicago Force women's tackle football team will become the National champions....join us to make it happen.
