The women's team began play in 1989, winning the 1st Division of West Norway in 1997, before the team was dissolved in 1999 and then resurrected in 2002.[1] The women's football team currently plays in the Toppserien, the first tier of Norwegian women's football, after promotion from the First Division in 2012, becoming the first club from Karmøy to play in the top league of any sport in Norway.[2][3] They reached the final of the Norwegian Women's Cup in 2013 and 2015 but lost in the final both times.

The footballer Cecilie Pedersen has previously represented Norway while playing for Avaldsnes.[4]
