The Ventura Black Widows are a new team in the Independent Women's Football League for 2014. Originally the team joined the NWFA. Shortly afterwards the league folded. Then an opportunity was presented to the team to join the Women's Football Alliance for its inaugural season, but the team later backed out due to low player numbers. After having enjoyed their independent status, in 2010 they joined the Women's Spring Football League. In 2014 the Ventura Black Widows decided to join the IWFL as a Tier 3 Team. Due to low player turnout the Black Widows did not field a team in 2014. The team will be back and stronger than ever in 2015.
