Since its inception, Major League Footy and its founding club have been strong supporters of both competitive co-ed and women’s footy.
Buoyed by the presence of three former members of the USAFL Women’s National Team, co-ed participation has been the expected norm at both the St. Petersburg Swans (Tampa Bay ARFC), and throughout the Major League Footy initiative.
With five Swans (Tampa Bay) players – teaming up with members of the Portland, Arizona and Seattle clubs – helped capture the 2016 Women’s Division II National Championship.
Each of those players also participated in the 2016-’17 Major League Footy winter season, and are foundational players for the league’s Women’s program.
Many Major League Footy matches are designated as co-ed, with little or no rules variation for integrated squads.
All St. Petersburg Swans (Tampa Bay ARFC) and Major League Footy trainings, practices and competitions are always open to co-ed players of all ages and skill level, and all opportunities for match participation, captaincy and administration are open to all players.
