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) and placed second (they had been playing each other for years and only two or three of us on the Steel had ever played football before!). In 2011, our league expanded to include four teams from Saskatchewan and Manitoba, creating the WWCFL, Western Women’s Canadian Football League. During the 2012 season the Lethbridge Steel went on to win our first Western Conference Championship. In our 2013 season, the league once again expanded to include two new Alberta teams, Okotoks and Grande Prairie. The Lethbridge Steel were the 2013 Western Conference Champions!
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.
