The team finished first in the National Conference Mid-Atlantic Division with an undefeated 8-0 mark before falling to the Chicago Force 41-31 in a first round playoff defeat. The women are heading into an off-season filled with community appearances, strength and conditioning workouts and participation in flag football competition.
The team kicks off its preparations for the 2012 season with new player tryouts on August 14th and August 28th. Both tryout sessions will be held from 5-7 pm at Cupples Stadium, which is located at 930 East Carson Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15203 on the south side of the city. The tryout involves football specific skills and drills.
Interested women should bring copies of photo identification and a health insurance card. Please dress appropriately for the workout and bring a water bottle. The tryout will be held rain or shine. A one-time $35 tryout fee is required. Cash and cashier’s checks only are accepted. Prospective coaches and student interns who would like to support the team in 2012 are also encouraged to attend the sessions in August to learn more about the organization.
