About the Team:

Fort Worth F.C. has, once again, provided a great opportunity for young female soccer players, the majority of whom have come through the Lake Highlands Classic League, local leagues and colleges, with some former professional and International players. We simply want the most committed and dedicated players to come and try-out for our team, play and become role models for our young players and in the community at large.

The Fort Worth Panthers are focused on quality training and player development, to make sure we are ready to compete in the WPSL, which is the largest women's soccer league in the World. There are 50+ teams across the nation and each of those can be researched on the WPSL website at
