Keystone Assault seeks women to play football

Posted

Central Pennsylvania’s only women’s tackle football team has released details about upcoming tryouts.

The Keystone Assault will conduct tryouts at Seventh and Radnor Park in Harrisburg from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, and 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13.

Prospective players are invited to meet Assault coaches and returning veterans to learn basic concepts of 11-player football and engage in physical skills training. Attendees can expect to participate in non-contact drills to develop general and position-specific abilities such as footwork, blocking, route running, ball handling, and more.

“Previous playing experience is not a prerequisite for prospective players. The sport of football requires diversity, and to be successful we need players of all shapes, sizes, skill sets, and backgrounds,” according to a news release from the team. “You might have been a high school or college athlete, maybe you’re a gym rat, or maybe you have never played organized sports before. Bring a desire to play and a commitment to excellence and we will turn you into a football player.”

Prospective players need to bring sneaker/cleats and water, along with a $10 tryout fee and must be at least 17 years old. The Assault football season runs from April through June.

More information about the tryouts and how to participate can be found on the Keystone Assault website at keystoneassault.net or by emailing keystoneassault@gmail.com.

The Keystone Assault was founded in 2008. They are a member of the Women’s Football Alliance and play their home games at Falcon Field in Hummelstown.
