Frequently Asked Questions

Due to continued campus COVID-19 restrictions, we have rescheduled the 10th and final Ladies Football Academy for June 11, 2022. If you want to cancel, please email us at If we don’t hear from you, we will roll your registration over for next year. Please hang in there with us. We’re still planning the best Ladies Football Academy ever! /div>
Yes. We are allowing all participants to cancel or transfer their registration before April 11, 2021.
Mostly due to scheduling difficulties. The constant changes in College Football, mostly involving recruiting, have made scheduling Ladies Football Academy increasingly difficult for coaches and players. Regretfully, all good things come to an end. Celebrating 10 years of Ladies Football Academy seems the better way to end this wonderful event on a high note. Iowa Football has had a great time teaming up with the many women of Hawkeye Nation to support UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Unfortunately, due continued campus Covid restrictions, we have made the decision to postpone the 10th and final Ladies Football Academy one more year. We’re looking forward to the biggest and best Ladies Football Academy yet to come on June 11, 2022!
