A new women's flag football league is getting together just in time for fall and it's not too far outside of Rockford to join.

According to a flyer shared by Terry Shroyer on Facebook, the Dixon Park District is now accepting registrations for teams an all Women's Flag Football League.

The games are on Sunday and start on September 16. Women in the league must be 18 years or older and the $400.00 fee needs to be paid in full by Wednesday, September 12.

This has to be one of the first of the leagues that I have run across in my time since I've been in the Rockford area.

It's a super cool idea. I'd love to see something like this take off in Rockford.
