Women’s tackle football team holding tryouts

The Grand Rapids Tsunami, a women’s full-contact football team out of Grand Rapids, will be making their debut in 2018. They will play their inaugural season in Division III of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA), a national league with over 65 teams.

“We are trying to bring recognition to the sport of women’s football and provide female athletes from Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas a platform to chase their dream of playing competitive football,” explained a spokesperson for the team. “Our league is a full-contact league just like the NFL. The only difference is that our sport is not well known and therefore our players actually have to pay to play the sport they love. Our players have full-time jobs and play for the love of the game.”

They are holding open player evaluations/tryouts at Douglas Walker Park, 1195 84th Street, Byron Center, on Saturday, October 14 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.; Sunday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; and Sunday, October 22, from 3-5:30 p.m. Bring athletic apparel, cleats or athletic shoes, and water. No experience or equipment is necessary to tryout. They will teach new players everything they need to know to play this sport.
