RWBL - Richmond Women's Football League
The Richmond Women's Football League (RWBL) is an amateur football league based in Richmond, Virginia. The league was founded in 1974 and currently has over 100 teams competing in various divisions.
The RWBL is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing a fun and challenging environment for women of all ages and skill levels to play football. The league offers a variety of divisions, including recreational, competitive, and elite.
The RWBL season runs from March to November. Games are played on Saturdays and Sundays at various fields in the Richmond area. The playoffs are held in November, and the championship game is held at the end of the season.
The RWBL was founded in 1974 by a group of women who wanted to play football. The league started with just a few teams, but it has grown steadily over the years. The RWBL is now one of the largest women's football leagues in the United States.
The RWBL has been a pioneer in women's football. The league was one of the first to offer a competitive division, and it has helped to pave the way for other women's football leagues around the country.
The RWBL plays by the rules of the National Football League (NFL). However, there are some minor modifications to the rules to accommodate the smaller size of the players.
For example, the field is smaller than an NFL field, and the goalposts are shorter. The players also wear modified helmets and shoulder pads.
