The Independent Women's Football League brings its world championship to Rock Hill next week.

The games will be played over four days at the Rock Hill School District 3 football stadium on Cherry Road. The July 23 to 26 event will also feature training and educational activities for girls interested in learning about football. Skills training will also be available for women.

Organizers say the Women's Football Foundation events will include a coach's clinic, helmet-free tackle clinic and a girl's tackle football showcase game. The league has also planned a banquet to honor past and future starts.

Past women's football world championships have been held in Chicago, Atlanta and Long Beach, Calif. The Rock Hill event is expected to draw nearly 1,500 people.
