NYC: GIRLS FOOTBALL EXPLODES IN THE BIG APPLE.
Big Apple's Girls Say: It's Our Turn !
A quiet explosion of girls
football has taken place
inside the New York City
limits for 2012.
After months of
preparation, two girls
only clinics and a 22 team
tournament, New York City
has opened the doors on
it's inaugural girls football
While we couldn't visit
tournament, which we
phenomenal, we were
able to cover the clinic
Our coverage of the season began this afternoon as the Truman Lady Mustangs took on the squad from
JFK. We definitely expected Truman to be a force to be reckoned with because of the length of time they've
been playing ball. Yet we were pleasantly surprised by the lady Knights who bested Truman in the end.

Leave it to the Big Apple to be on the
forefront of change in sports.
League changes for 2012 include the
historic introduction of girls flag football
across the city. Some think football and
girls don't mix at all but that's a viewpoint that
is in the process of changing for many
To be sure, it's great for girls to play with
other girls who love the sport. After years of
watching everything from Superbowls to their
brother's football games it only makes sense
that girls would come to love the game just
as boys do ! On Saturday teams
representing many of the city's power house
sports showed up at Tilden High School for
the second of two preseason clinics. Teams
were met and instructed by Flag football
supervisor , Jen Blum, who is no stranger to
the game herself.
running the clinic by her fellow Shark teammates. Athletes were taught basic drills, skills and safe play.
All we can say is that these girls have been watching their male classmates a lot closer than some might think, they've definitely got a fair
grip on the basis. In fact some players exhibited excellent skills, there were more than a few well thrown balls being tossed about !
We're looking to cover teams across the city this season, it should be exciting!
