The Grand Rapids Tidal Waves Are Hosting Women’s Football Tryouts
If you are a woman who has always wanted to try football, the Grand Rapids Tidal Waves is looking for new talent.
Women's Football Not Offered in School
Growing up, there were no women's football teams at my school. Women's soccer, softball, basketball, tennis, track, and lacrosse were all part of the female sports teams. I'm not saying that women couldn't play football, they just didn't have a team or a league for them to play on.
When the neighborhood kids would play football, we had both guys and girls on the teams. We never thought anything of it because it gave us more players. My sister was one of the fastest kids in the neighborhood and she often played a wide receiver because no one could catch her.

Even though schools don't have a female football team, there is a team in Grand Rapids that is all women and in some cases, this is the first place they ever played the game.
