Lingerie Football League Tryout Date Is Nov. 10

Tryouts will take place in Fairburn, Ga.

The planned Atlanta franchise of the Lingerie Football League, which has scheduled two games in Gwinnett in 2013, has announced an open tryout date in the Atlanta area in November.

According to a league news release, the tryout will be on Saturday, Nov. 10 in Fairburn, which is in southeast Fulton County. The location will be Score Indoor, 1245 Oakley Industrial Boulevard, 30213. The session begins at 1 p.m.

Participants are asked to wear athletic gear, and arrive an hour before the session begins. Applicants will be judged on agility, speed, strength and focus.

The tryout application can be downloaded here, and should be brought to the session.

Those selected at the tryout will advance to an Atlanta mini-camp; no details have been announced for that.

The LFL has scheduled games for April 13 and May 18 at the Gwinnett Arena in 2013.

In the LFL, football is seven on seven, with no punting or field goals. The league currently has 12 teams, divided into four divisions. Team nicknames include Sin, Temptation and Charm. 

On Oct. 31, LFL officials announced the league had received nearly 4,300 name suggestions for the new Atlanta team. The name most often submitted -- the Atlanta Steam.

"The Atlanta name submission was one of the most successful team name submission responses of any LFL expansion market," officials stated in a press release. "Additionally, LFL league offices have received greater interest from prospective players than in any other market in the history of the league."

In an Oct. 3 article, we asked Dacula Patch readers to share their name suggestions for the new Atlanta team. Suggestions included: 

  • Atlanta Angels 
  • Gwinnett Undergarments 
  • Gwinnett Garterbelts 
  • Gwinnett G-stringers 
  • Duluth Divas (2 votes)
  • Duluth Babydolls 
  • Sugarloaf Sugardaddies
  • Gwinnett Hot Dawgs
  • Gwinnett Queens
  • Georgia Peaches

What do you think of "Atlanta Steam" as a team name? Do you plan to go see the Steam play (or frolic as the case may be)? Let us know in the comments.

No punting? That’s strange, you would think the high leg kick motion would be a crowd pleaser and worthy of slow motion replays on the jumbotron. Go Steam!

Also, will there be cheerleaders at these games? I mean, women in lingerie playing football is just not enough to get me out to these games, I need cheerleaders as well. Unless they would be male cheerleaders, then that would just be awkward.

"Gwinnett G-Stringers" has a lovely ring to it.

I think male cheerleaders woud be perfectly logical, but I do see your point. Obviously this sport is meant to attract men, so they may as well go all-in and have a female cheerleading squad as well. While they're at it, maybe they need scantily clad female referees too.

Will there be another tryout? For those who could not get in?
