Round Rock, Texas
– The IWFL is pleased to announce it has awarded a new team membership to Jeanette Fuller of Arlington, Texas. She and her daughter D’Angela Ricks formed the Arlington Impact earlier this year to provide an alternative opportunity for women to play tackle football in the DFW metroplex.
Ms. Fuller made the decision to get involved after identifying a need to create a team focused on positive instruction, operations integrity, and accountability at all levels.
“Jeanette and her daughter D’Angela have been great to work with,” said Kezia Disney, IWFL Chief Operating Officer, “They have the big picture in mind and are approaching this the right way by focusing their energy on creating a team that players will really want to be a part of.”
The Impact is based in Arlington, Texas and will play an eight game regular season schedule against teams from Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee. Several 2011 IWFL All Stars have already committed to the Impact giving this new program a very strong core group of leaders. The team will also hold several new player tryouts over the next few months to introduce the sport to beginners as well as offer a new opportunity to play for those with experience.
"We are excited about making an IMPACT on the field as well as within our community. There is great talent in the area and our goal is to bring women together to empower and motivate them to succeed. Vince Lombardi said, "Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a team work." We are committed to building a foundation within our team that exudes positivity and a willingness to work together,” stated Jeanette Fuller.
The first open tryout for the Impact is scheduled for Saturday, September 17 at Clarence Thompson Park, 1600 Brown BLVD Arlington TX 76011. No experience is necessary.
