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.

Our mission is 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 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.


The Prodigy is a volunteer run, 501(c)(3) non-profit  organization. We are members of the United States Women's Football League (USWFL),

We are a diverse group of women; our ranks include mothers, teachers, lawyers, federal employees, and civil servants (police, fire) from various athletic backgrounds.

Washington Prodigy is fiercely committed to community service. We love giving back to the local community. We have volunteered with Anacostia Watershed, Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington DC, DC Toys 4 Tots, Virginia Panthers Youth Football, Capital Pride, Alexandria Fire Department, and a host of other schools and service organizations.

Our goal is to continue making an impact both on and off the football field.
