Whether they were a soccer star in high school or college, or have only watched from the sidelines, the women taking the field next month as part of the Sioux Falls City Football Club will be breaking down barriers and breaking records. That’s because the team will be the first of its kind in South Dakota.

Erik Gaikowski is the State Director for AARP South Dakota; and Melissa Nelson and Emily Thomas are the co-owners of Sioux Falls City Football club.

They joined us to tell us more about the club and how you can support them in their inaugural season.
