The Pathway to International Competition starts here
The SWFA takes pride in paving the path for our athletes, some who began with zero knowledge of the game, all the way to international competition against some of the worlds best football players.
The Women of the SWFA build their skills, knowledge and competitiveness through our Pioneer and Bomber programs and their respective coaching staff. The SWFA provides the support and training to our athletes that challenges our athletes to take the next step.
The SWFA believes that the opportunity to compete at an international level of women's football should not be just a dream. The SWFA's focus on preparing athletes for competing at an International drives our organization to provide training and competition options to our athletes, both Pioneer tackle players and Bomber.
For our athletes to obtain the level of skills, knowledge, experience and confidence to compete at the international level we offer several elite coaching options that are provided at little of no cost to our athletes. We also believe that all women should have these opportunities and often open up these elite training opportunities to women athletes outside of our programs.
Elite training partners include:
