The Lethbridge Steel played our first ever season in the spring/summer of 2010. We formed a league with Edmonton and Calgary called the Alberta Female Football League (AFFL)
In 2011, our league expanded to include four teams from Saskatchewan and Manitoba, creating the WWCFL, Western Women’s Canadian Football League. In 2013 two more teams were added to the Alberta Western conference: the Northern Anarchy (Grande Prairie) and the Lady Outlawz (Okotoks).
In 2012 and 2013 the Steel went 5-0 in regular season play and 4-1 in the 2014 season. The Steel went on to be the Western Conference Champions in all of those seasons. The Steel were defeated in the WWCFL championship games by the Saskatoon Valkyries.
In 2015 the Steel went 2-2 during the regular season which lead to a 3-way tie breaker that resulted in the Steel to miss the playoffs and league final for the first time program history.
Our team includes women ranging in age from 16 to 50(!) with a wide range of sports backgrounds from soccer and rugby to ringette and roller derby! We enjoy having fun during practices and on the field, but we are passionate about football and take the game seriously.
