Empower is home to people who want to empower females through sport. We believe in the potential of our athletes. We welcome girls/women from all walks of life regardless of age. Football is a game for all. It teaches us to be humble, kind and disciplined. We aspire to teach life skills on the field through communication, teamwork, respect, and inclusion. We dream to instill a lifelong love of football in our athletes by raising their physical literacy and making them aware of their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
