Afterburners Team Bio

We’re a competitive (but not overly) group of athletes who love to win and put on a good show, but prioritize fun and friendship first. The Burners are a blend of athletes ranging in experience from basketball to soccer, field hockey to softball and everything in between. Our diversity is our strength. Rookie or vet, straight or queer - all are welcome here!

History

Our team sparked from a handful of womxn who play for a charity league supporting Alzheimer’s research.  Our fire burned out on the SFWFFL league for a couple years as we took a hiatus the past few seasons, but we made a comeback for Fall 2018 and our flame is hotter than ever!

Current Recruitment

We’re full for the fall 2019!

 

Where/When Practice

We typically get together on Sunday mornings before our games to warm-up, refresh on plays, and run through strategy. Look for the smoke stack to find us! (jk we don’t set fires, but we’re pretty hot and easy to spot *wink wink*)

Call Me's Team Bio 

As one of the longest running teams in the league, we try to keep our competitive edge while having a good time.  Probably best known for our ever-present mimosa cooler and solo cups,  we're great at evading defenders, but less great at avoiding hangovers.  With our wide range of ages, genders/non-conforming, and backgrounds, we couldn't be more different individually, but the football field is our common ground and we have a lot of love for our queer family (within our own team and the league in general). 


History

We are one of the longest running teams in the league - some have been on the team close to 10 years.


Current Recruitment

New players welcome!...Especially if you have QB experience


Where/When Practice

Sometimes before games, but no commitment during the week (unless you count happy hour)

Cosmos Team Bio

We are a team of committed people who like to have fun. We are definitely the cutest team in the league but also always do our best and, increasingly, win. We’re competitive but welcome anybody who wants to learn football. We also like mimosas at the field after games.

 

History

SFWFFL staple, used to be known as the stoners but have cleaned up our act lately.

 

Current Recruitment

Any and all of the positive attitudes welcome. Others need not apply.

 

Where/When Practice

8/18 for sure and some ad hoc practices / scrimmages once the season starts. We also meet before games to warm up and strategize.

East Baes Team Bio

East Baes is a newly formed team comprised of players/friends/baes from various teams from seasons past. We are an athletic, competitive, yet goofy group. We're in to dry humor, mild sarcasm and dad jokes.  Many of us also play on an East Bay softball team together- we just can’t get enough of one another and love sports (#sportsball!) as well as camping, fishing, hiking, and haven taken Tahoe & Yosemite and other trips together.  Fun fact: we have the tallest player in the league at 6 ft 3 and one of the shortest at 5’ 1! We have diverse athletic backgrounds and have former collegiate athletes from various sports including soccer, basketball, rugby, rowing, and tennis, but come together in the pursuit of friendship and flag football.  We call each other "fam". Wanna be in the fam? Wanna ball? Come ball with us.


History

We are a new team for the Fall 2019. Most players have been in the league 3-4 seasons, however we also have a couple rookies. We already have objectively the best logo in the league and have several practices under our belt to start gelling together for a great fall season! 


Current Recruitment

We could use one more versatile player with sticky hands and a good sense of humor.


Where/When Practice

Thursday evenings in Alameda/Oakland/Berkeley.

Flaming Flags Team Bio

Flaming Flags is a first year time comprised of both veteran free agents and new players looking to have fun (during and after games), compete, and win the ‘chip. We have some impressive athletes and are super stoked to get the season started :) Our team is really focused on making every player’s experience enjoyable and get everyone involved in the game plan, so no fear, regardless of your experience level, we will find a role for you! We also love beer and we hang at breweries after practices and games, and our uniforms are pretttttty (see pic below).  

 

History

This is our second season as a team and a majority of our players come from other teams from previous seasons. We decided to come together last season to create a competitive and fun team. Some of our players have played rugby at a high level - others basketball, soccer, and softball. We are super diverse and love that aspect of our team :)

 

Current Recruitment

We’re welcoming new recruits with open arms! Particularly, we are looking for a Qb and always love anyone with speed! We have a really solid line and should have lots of options to open up a dynamic offense (good mix of running and passing), as well as some of the most athletic defensive players in the league, so regardless of which side of the ball you prefer (or both!), there is opportunity for you with the Flags.   


Where/When Practice

Berkeley or SF, Thursday nights 7:30 - 8:30. Followed by beer, always.  Light walk-through before games.

Honey Badgers Team Bio

Honeys enjoy hanging out on and off the field, developing our football IQ, increasing our skills, and acquiring as much new Badger swag as possible! Just got a new logo, made by one of our own, we’re real excited about. We feel that strong womxn lift one another to the top! Camaraderie, growth, community, and eye black are kinda our thaaaangs.

History
This is our 4th season. We came in as a mostly inexperienced team and went from second to last our 1st season, to second to first our 2nd season! Looking forward to this 2019 fall season and ready to bring it!

Current Recruitment

Looking for one more versatile player to join our team! 


Where/When Practice

Thursday evenings in Dolores during season. We often do joint practices with Cosmos. Getting a couple pre-season practices in... one in Oakland and one at Crocker Amazon in south SF where games are.

Tacos Team Bio

First and most importantly: if you like champagne on Sundays and team dinners/drinks with film watching/game review then you should definitely be a Taco. That said, when the Tacos show up, on-field or off-field, you know that it’s about to go down. We have a mix of people who played soccer, rugby, softball and other sports ball things. We continue to improve our competitive level but balance it out with occasional shenanigans and appreciate the community vibe SFWFFL stands for. We support each other through and through and have a fun family ethos but understand that some people have work and other responsibilities too. We’ve had some injuries, so looking for new people to join our squad! 


History

Started off as the misfit team in our first season - put together by the last few people to join and had never met.  This past season, in a nail biter of a final, finished second and the season before we finished in third. Time to bring the championship HOME going into our fourth season! 


Current Recruitment

We are looking for strong line people, a couple of people whose hands are as amazing at grabbing flags on defense as they are to catching balls (footballs that is) on offense. 

Where/When Practice

We alternate practices between evenings in San Francisco, and Saturday mornings in Oakland.

Wombats Team Bio

Wombats is a brand spanking new team filled with a hodgepodge of Free Agents and a returning league player.  This team is a place where you can learn to play the game and become better athletes.    We love to play the game.  Fun fact:  a group of wombats is called a wisdom, a mob, or a colony.


History

Beginning of an era. Let’s make some history, mob squad!


Current Recruitment

All players needed - QB, linemen, RB, WR, Safety, Rushers, etc.  New or experienced, all is welcome.  Desire to play and learn?  Come with a dash of eagerness, a sprinkle of hard work , and a pinch of competitiveness.


Where/When Practice

Weekly practice in Oakland or East Bay.
