Kelly McGillis Classic 2009

February 10, 2009

The 19th Annual Kelly McGillis Classic was a sucess!

The southern most point was quite chilly on Thursday and by Saturday the sun was beaming  and warmed up to the mid 70s for great football weather.

In short, the Canadians took home two of the three divisions while Blue Wave of Melbourne FL, took home Division 3 Championship.  We saw two new teams to the Adult tournmanet  and nine Junior and girls teams competed this weekend.

Do you have a Myspace?

We have had a myspace online for over 2 years, but we just didn’t know what to do with it! Now were using it to connect to new Flag Footballer friends we didn’t knew we had! Women interested in Flag Football have used Myspace to contact the IWFFA about starting new programs in New Orleans, West Palm Beach and LA.

If your a Myspacer… make sure you add us as your friend

Please patronize the businesses who have supported us and let them know your flag football!”- Diane


IWFFA is on Wikipedia!

January 17, 2009

The IWFFA is now on the most recognizable encyclopedia. If you didn’t hear about it before:

“Wikipedia (pronunciation Spoken content icon) is a free,[5] multilingual encyclopedia project supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Its name is a portmanteau of the words wiki (a technology for creating collaborative websites, from the Hawaiian word wiki, meaning ‘fast’) and encyclopedia. Wikipedia’s 12 million articles (2.6 million in English) have been written collaboratively by volunteers around the world, and almost all of its articles can be edited by anyone who can access the Wikipedia website.[6] Launched in January 2001 by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger,[7] it is currently the most popular[3] general reference work on the Internet.”

You can view the link to IWFFA on Wiki here!

Before today, if you searched “Flag Football” , you would get info about another Flag Football  organization who offers one division of “girls” competition, who is also linked to the NFL. Now that the IWFFA is on Wiki, readers will have the opportunity to get to know the IWFFA.

As with the nature of the site, you may add photos or additional information to the website in any form.


A New Place to Keep Informed About Football

January 8, 2009

If your anything like me, you are counting the days, hours and minutes until your back on Key West’s soil. The Kelly McGillis Classic is a tournament like no other. It is the largest of the tournaments, it’s average temperature is 70 degrees F  year round and it provides one great party after another.

Unfortunately the tournament occurs once a year, which means that you are left to 51 weeks of anticipation.  If you and your team participate in another IWFFA tournament in the Nordic Region or your in your local league, call yourself lucky. Either way, if your reading this, you are counting down the time until you lace up your cleats again.

So when you can’t be on the field, you can keep updated on football news, events and any other tidbits we can find to fuel your fix.
