“ Even though the first tournament ended there is a lot more work to be done. It was a very good beginning. We did have some minor complications and set backs but nothing that would stop us!

This 2017 we will continue with the second tournament of the same four teams building a strong roster base and continuing with our vision of growing women’s tackle football in Honduras to the highest level in the Central American region.

In the meantime time we are waiting for other regional countries like Nicaragua and Guatemala to begin building their teams so we may form a national team in Honduras ready to play across the region. “
