Women’s Indoor Football League to Support WASUP Girlz Tackle Football League…

WIFL HAS TEAMED UP WITH WASUP GIRLZ TACKLE FOOTBALL LEAGUE!!!

Las Vegas, NV – November 29, 2012 – – Commissioner Dion Lee of the Women’s Indoor Football League (WIFL) is making strides to bring awareness and notoriety to women’s sports by leading the movement for women’s tackle football. Since its launch in October 2012, WIFL has become an official supporter of the WASUP Girlz Tackle Football League. WASUP is a non-profit 503(c) corporation that was created to promote a full tackle girl’s football league focused on creating a positive, safe and fun environment for the girls who love to play football, much like the Pop Warner league for boys.
WASUP was founded by Commissioner Lee in early 2012 as part of his vision to develop a feeder program for the professional women’s leagues. The program will recruit and train young girls aged 8 to 18 to play football at a competitive level for little to no cost. With growing popularity of girl’s playing flag football, WASUP is giving those athletes an opportunity to increase their skill level and to be a part of the push for the girls to play tackle.
The WASUP program was pioneered in Las Vegas, Nevada with expectations to expand into 20 new markets in 2013. WIFL has adopted the opportunity to support the league’s growth and to follow the expansion footprint of the professional league. 
This concept has never been done before and is an aggressive move for WIFL to have sustainability by fostering a young pool of athletic talent from which to recruit. This will increase awareness across the U.S. and around the World of the movement for women to play a traditionally male-dominated contact sport, growing the fan support, and ultimately putting women’s football on the map.
WIFL’s commitment to the WASUP Girlz Tackle Football League is a portion of revenues generated through franchise sales and sponsorships. The proceeds will be used to subsidize the cost of player registration fees, uniforms, football gear, and travel. WIFL will be co-branded with WASUP as an official supporter of the non-profit.
About WASUP Girlz Tackle Football:
The league is divided into the Elementary Division (grades 3-5), Middle School Division (grades 6-8) and High School Division (grades 9-12) so that girl’s will play with their appropriate age groups. There are currently 12 teams in the Las Vegas/Henderson market that are looking for players. WASUP Girlz Tackle Football is open for online registration at http://www.wasupsports.com/ for the 2013 season.

Female linebacker inspires other young girls

Aminah Barrett is only one of the seven girls in the city of Houston that plays football with boys. She attends Twin Creeks Middle School.

The eighth grader receives solid A and B grades and has been playing since the fourth grade.

“I like playing linebacker,” Aminah told KMOV St Louis. “I like to hit people and be aggressive.” Aminah is also a running back.

When her teammate Colton Mangum saw a girl with them while they were getting their pads, he thought, “‘Oh, okay so this is different.’”
