Who We Are
Washington Prodigy Women’s Tackle Football team was formed in the summer of 2012 by veteran women football players and coaches with the goal to provide an environment focused on high-quality training, respect, and professionalism that benefits players of all skill levels.
We are members of the United States Women’s Football League (USWFL), a non-profit league comprised of teams across the country. We play an 8-game regular season schedule that begins in April, with four home games, four away games, and playoff games continuing into late July.
We are a diverse group of women; our ranks include mothers, teachers, lawyers, federal employees, and civil servants (police, fire) from various athletic backgrounds.
The Prodigy is a volunteer run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
To build and maintain a highly visible program which fosters the overall development of female athletes desiring to participate in competitive tackle football while also serving as a source of pride for the Washington Prodigy and the DC Metropolitan Area.
While ALWAYS having this in mind, on and off the field, we will make sure that we are here to:
*HONOR – Each other & individuals who have made outstanding contributions to women’s professional football.
*PRESERVE – The Washington Prodigy & Women’s Professional Football historic moments, documents, and artifacts.
*EDUCATE – The public regarding the origin, development & growth of women’s professional football as an important part of New Culture.
*PROMOTE – The positive values, effort, and longevity of the sport.
