The city’s first women’s arena football team is gearing up for the up coming season.

33-athletes make up the team of dedicated players.

We caught up with the newly formed team Tuesday during practice at Pontchartrain Park.

“I’m looking forward to a tough season; I don’t think it will be a cakewalk,” said linebacker Shawn Smith.  “It’s a very physical sport and it will try you mentally and physically.”

“We’re not out here just being cute, doing a little touch; we actually tackle,” running back Kayla Martin said.

The season begins in June.

The team’s first home game will be played in Kenner at the Pontchartrain Center.
