Flag Football and Women's Tackle

Can we work together?

The IWFFA is on it's 3 month promotional tour traveling across the USA and Canada offering clinics to teach how to: play, coach and officiate flag football.

On the tour, we gave a clinic organized by Barbara Coletta and hosted by the sixxes women's tackle football in Sacramento, California. Some women did not play flag or tackle prior to the clinic and the majority of women played tackle before the clinic.

We had a day of flag, barbequed food and conversation about the two sports: flag football and women's tackle, discussing the strengths and weaknesses joining players and the two sports.

Listen to our conversations with:

Bj Coletta  - An organizer for tackle women's football talks about the dynamics of playing tackle, what tackle entails and the benefits for joining tackle players with flag football players.

Marina Beebe - Describes the mental differences there are  playing tackle compared to flag football

Catherine McCloud  - interested in playing tackle, but never tried, joining our flag football clinic has encouraged and helped Cat to play tackle.

Karina Stegall - never coached before, is ready to coach flag football

It is an interesting conversation, so please join us for tonight’s On the Air with the IWFFA with the women from Sacramento, CA Sixxes Tackle Team.
