Iowa Force Women's Basketball
In the Spring 2016, Des Moines became the home to a premier professional development basketball team in the Women's Blue Chip Basketball League (WBCBL). The league consists of over 40 teams across the country and gives women an opportunity to play against some of the best competition in the nation. Not only is this a chance to continue your playing career beyond college, but also provides exposure to international sports scouts to help take your game to the next level.
For the inaugural season, our team was comprised of ten players with aspirations to play at a competitive level and/or advance their career to the next level. We will compete in the Mid-West Region with teams from Omaha, Kansas City, and the St.Louis Area. This region includes the 2014 & 2016 League Champions, 2015 League Runner Up - St. Louis Surge ad the 2016 League Runner Up - Midwest Flyers.
The regular season will run from May through July, with the National Tournament taking place in August. Practices will be held twice a week from 7-9pm starting the first week of April. Our skills workouts will begin in late February/early March and held twice a week until practices start.
We are currently accepting any new players to our team for the 2017 season. If you currently have your NCAA eligibility, you are not eligible to play in the WBCBL until you are no longer eligible to compete in the NCAA. If you have NCAA eligiblity and you're interested in playing for the Force, please get in touch with me so that I can explain the next steps.
Everyone that wants to play on the Force must try out and pay the one time tryout fee of $50. Tryout fee is waived for the returning players that finished the 2016 season. Dates have yet to be announced for official tryouts, but we are holding a Meet and Greet on Saturday, November 12th to learn more about the Force and WBCBL.
Our game venue is Iowa Center of Higher Education (formerly AIB College of Business in Des Moines, Iowa. (2500 Fleur Drive 50321)
