Unser zweiter Gegner: Canada

Tackle-Football in Kanada geht zurück auf das Jahr 1861. Das erste belegte Football-Spiel wurde am 9. November 1861 an der Universität von Toronto gespielt. Kanada kann somit die Erfindung des „Football“ für sich beanspruchen, auch wenn der Sport inzwischen durch die NFL weltweit als „American Football“ bekannt geworden ist und nicht durch die „Canadian Football“ spielenden Teams.

„Canadian Football“ unterscheidet sich in einigen Regelabweichungen vom „American Football“, so stehen die Teams mit 12 statt 11 Spielern auf dem Feld, das Feld ist etwas größer und vor allem werden nur drei statt vier Downs gespielt.

Seit 2004 spielen die ersten Damen-Teams in einer kleinen Liga in Ost-Kanada, der MWFL. 2008 nahmen die ersten drei Teams in West-Kanada den Tackle-Spielbetrieb auf, 2010 folgte eine vierte Mannschaft. Bereits seit 2002 tritt mit Montreal Blitz ein kanadisches Teams erfolgreich in der US-amerikanischen IWFL an.

Mehr Infos zu den kanadischen Teams unter www.ladiesfootball.de.

In der Woche vor der Weltmeisterschaft treffen sich die 45 Spielerinnen zu einem viertägigen Trainingslager in St. John (New-Brunswick), in dem es auch darum gehen wird, sich an die NCAA-Regeln zu gewöhnen, die vom kanadischen Football leicht abweichen. Am 22. Juni wird ein öffentliches Scrimmage abgehalten, bevor es dann auf die Reise nach Schweden geht. Große Hoffnung setzen die Kanadier in die Tatsache, dass sie ausgerechnet am kanadischen Nationalfeiertag (1. Juli) gegen Deutschland spielen werden.

Unser erster Gegner: Sweden

15.06.10

Als zweiter skandinavischer Verband nach Finnland begann Schweden 2008 mit dem Aufbau von Ladiesfootball-Teams. Einen geregelten Ligabetrieb gibt es noch immer nicht, man trifft sich zu Turnieren, spielt ansonsten Flag-Football und trainiert Tackle-Football für das Highlight im Herbst: das jährliche Match der schwedischen gegen die finnischen Nationalmannschaften. Im ersten Anlauf verlor die Frauen-Auswahl 2008 noch mit 0:64, im Jahr darauf nur noch mit 6:36.

Der bisherige schwedische Headcoach Kristoffer Hard hat sein Team für die Weltmeisterschaft in die Hände versierter Offense- und Defense-Coordinatoren gelegt, um selbst nur noch die Organisation zu leiten. Nach Ostern verbrachte das schwedische Team ein Trainingslager in Norrköping, mit dabei auch „Legionärin“ Mila Belkacem, die 2009 als Defense End in den Diensten der Berlin Kobra Ladies „Deutscher Meister“ geworden ist.

Ein kleines Problem hat sich für die Schweden auf der Quarterback-Position aufgetan, denn die Regeln besagen, dass jede an der WM teilnehmende Spielerin 16 Jahre alt sein muss. Die talentierte Marianne Gimhag von Stockholm Mean Machines, auf die Kristoffer Hard gerne gesetzt hätte, ist erst 1995 geboren und somit nicht teilnahmeberechtigt. Im letzten Derby gegen Finnland war sie nicht nur der Starting-QB, sondern auch diejenige, die den Ehrentouchdown erzielen konnte.

US- Women's team wants to gold medal

05.06.10

Autor: Jörg Schlüter / Huddle | Kategorie: Scouting, USA

Jörg Schlüter from Huddle takes a look at the competition from overseas:

The Women's Football Team of the USA is considered the big favorite for the first Women's Football World Cup in Stockholm. A few players, belonging to the 45er squad of the United States, Your thoughts and joyful anticipation have put on paper. It appears, that the favorites are emotionally upset and just like all other athletes on the first World Cup 2010 happy in Sweden.

Roseanna Smith is the Center of the American attack. In the IWFL plays for Atlanta Xplosion and, of course, looking forward, that one of her dreams can come true. Smith works for the American Junior Golf Association. In high school she practiced the sports of swimming, Soccer and football and was the first girl at school, playing in a IWFL football team.

"I'm incredibly excited, since I have been selected for Team USA. It is a honor, the have to thank many people I. Like most players in our team full-time are all employed and had always a lot of passion in the Football stuck. It has not always been easy, to exercise our sport. But this World Cup will move women's football also with us in the right light. "

Jennifer Blum, is a wide receiver and plays for the New York Sharks. Professionally, she has worked in the city as a lawyer and is as it were always directly from the courtroom for training. She played already in the "Little League" baseball and football as a teenager, has experience in Tai Kwan Do, spent three years captain of the Ithaca College softball team and a member of a baseball league. Blum also played in the year 1999 in the first team, he and New York Sharks 2008 for the USA Football Women's Flag Football Team.

“Six days a week I dedicate myself to the American Football. In my life there are currently only food, Drink, Sleep and Football. "Blum shares some information is also available in addition to the usual pathos, clarify the claim of the United States. "We take the World Cup very seriously and are preparing intensively for the trip to Sweden. The IWFL season is underway and so the players in the form will be. Several of us, are looking for an extra training, to better prepare. We hold each contact and use of this e-mail and Facebook. The team meets this summer in Texas (Round Rock, Tx am 18. June) for a short camp. We also motivate us with mobile phone SMS`s each other (train harder).“

“The event is all important for us, because it means the highlight of our career. Every woman in the IWFL has a different reason, why they play football and each has to tell a different story. But for the 45 Executive members, the United States represent, Summer is incredibly surreal. A win is therefore mandatory for us. "

Smith wants absolutely nothing to hide about the goal of the American mission "My goal is to bring in the first place for our team the gold home. I also hope, that we make ourselves and our country proud, as we like warriors fight and stand up with respect for each other.”

Der US-Verband hat natürlich auch ein ähnliches Ziel für die WM vorgegeben: „Mit einem Kader, der mit Spielerinnen Blum und Smith voll gepackt ist, sollte es nicht allzu schwierig sein, den Stolz für die Vereinigten Staaten zu verdienen. Es wäre eine besondere Anerkennung für den US-Frauenfußball nach so einem langen Weg.“

How good is the United States?

28.04.10

Autor: AGebek | Kategorie: General, Links, Scouting, USA

This is a question many fans and members of the German national team. Finally, the United States is simply THE homeland of our sport. Even if the woman football in the US beiweitem has less tradition than that of men, and probably less than the woman's Football in Germany, so the United States is always the yardstick. There is simply too much know-how and enthusiasm in this country for the football. As the team just has to be good. It seems almost impossible, that someone is different from the United States champion.

But as four of the six participants in the World Cup, so also the US national team has never played a game. So one has to rely on the comparison and a forecast on videos of clubs.

A good source of videos from the United States webpage

The evaluation and assessment of subjetktive performance is up to each own. The objective result will be clarified in Stockholm on the field.
