RU Women’s Flag Football

“Since our founding in 1847 as Rockford Female Seminary, Rockford University has been at the forefront of advancing educational opportunities for women,” Rockford University President Patricia Lynott stated. “Now we can build upon that tradition with the introduction of women’s flag football.”

“We want to get in at the ground floor, and we are thrilled to be the first college in the state of Illinois who has a competitive women’s flag football program,” Director of Athletics, Jason Mulligan said. “The response has been met with overwhelming approval, and Rockford University will become a leader with its flagship program.”

Since the NCAA has not officially recognized women’s flag football as a competitive sport, we will begin our program as a club on campus. As of now, the program will be built around a 7 vs. 7 format.
