Former players[edit]

On September 1, 2006, Kristin Reese, a player for the Chattanooga Locomotion was killed in a motorcycle accident. The loss of one of their own has greatly shaken them, but they have promised to play harder than they have ever played before, in her memory. Before the first game of the 2007 Season, the Locomotion also lost Jeff Ellis, an important member of the team performing many managerial functions.
