Firebirds Speak at Temple

Thanks to Karmen, Gerber, Mea and Smitty

Several members of the 2016 Firebirds had an opportunity to speak to students in the Sports Tourism Hospitality Management (STHM) major at Temple Universirty.  The players and staff spoke about some of the challenges they face or have faced in order to play the game of football.  Players talked about the team bond, why they play and how they got started.  The staff spoke about some of the difficulties and challenges they face in order to acquire sponsorship, fields, media coverage and marketing.

We are holding tryouts now for the 2016 season!!

Want to play for Philadelphia’s Premier


Women’s Football Team?

The Philadelphia Firebirds are now holding open tryouts to all women, 18 years of age 
and older.  There is no experience necessary, just a passion and desire to play the 
game.  We are looking for ATHLETES of all kind.  While we do have a few tryouts to try to
accommodate various schedules, we workout ALL YEAR, so the earlier you try out, the better.
You don’t want to miss out on off season training, team activities, and getting a head start on the
playbook! There is no try out fee all that we ask is that you come prepared to work out and if you 
have cleats they are recommended.  We do recommend any additional protective 
equipment you may need such as knee / ankle braces, etc. 
Please arrive 15 minutes early in order to complete the required registration paperwork!
For More Information contact us at: Phillyfirebirds@gmail.com

The Future of the Philadelphia Firebirds

A few week ago, Coleen, Mea, and Rachelle met with Kiaira and her mother (Ana) at Moss
Playground. Kiaira is the only girl playing on the Bristol Wardogs. She plays all positions,
but she loves playing linebacker the most. Before football, Kiaira made either C’s or D’s on
her report card. She is now a straight A student! After meeting Coleen and Mea she has
become a more aggressive player. Kiaira, also wants to try out for the Firebirds someday.
Ladies/Gentleman, this is what the Philadelphia Firebirds are all about. We strive to inspire
girls/women of all ages to do the unthinkable, and empower them to destroy all social
boundaries. Thank you Coleen and Mea for taking time out of your busy schedules. 

Looking for Volunteers

The Philadelphia Firebirds are looking for all stars off the field. We are looking for individuals to be part of the chain crew, game day stats, videographers, game day announcer, and game day manager to help with game day operations. If this sounds like you, please email us at phillyfirebirds@gmail.com.

Philadelphia Firebirds Goes Pink

The month of October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the CDC,
other than skin Cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women.
Each year in the U.S, more than 200,000 will get breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die
from this disease.
The Philadelphia Firebirds, women’s football team, went pink for the month of October. To show
our support for all women/men who are battling with this disease. For those who’ve survived this
disease and for those who’ve lost their fight. Also, we partnered with Making Strides of
Pennsauken, NJ to raise awareness by walking 3.1 miles around the Cooper River. 
“What a day we had at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer this past Sunday! Your enthusiasm and strong spirits primed the crowd for an inspiring and fun day for all in attendance!  Over 16,000 walkers came out and helped us raise over $535,000 at Pennsauken, NJ! ” –Sonia Kalra, MSABC
We’d like to thank everyone who participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event
and/or donated money to our joined cause. Together, as a community, we’ll continue to tackle
breast cancer. Until the day, we are victorious and find a cure.
 Thank you Firebirds for making a difference!
