The association was founded in 1929 as SG Waldgirmes. As a worker's side the club was banned for political reasons when the Nazis came to power in 1933 and a number of the footballers left for TV 05 Waldgirmes where they formed a football department. After World War II occupying Allied authorities banned all organizations in the country including sports and football associations. SG Waldgirmes was re-established in the summer of 1945 as a general community sports association. In 1948 the football side went its own way as the independent club FC Waldgirmes until being re-united with its parent in 1952 to form SC Waldgirmes.

The footballers were promoted to Landesliga Hessen-Mitte in 1970 and played at that level over the next three decades with the exception of single season demotions in 1975 and 1993. In 2002 Waldgirmes earned promotion to the Oberliga Hessen (IV) after capturing their first Landesliga (V) title. They were relegated after a last place finish but immediately won their way back to fourth tier Oberliga play the next season, where they archived good results in the following season. In 2008–09, the club won the Oberliga but decided not to apply for a Regionalliga licence and remained at this level. In 2012-13 the club finished 14th in the league and was relegated after coming last in the relegation/promotion round.

  • With the introduction of the Regionalligas in 1994 and the 3. Liga in 2008 as the new third tier, below the 2. Bundesliga, all leagues below dropped one tier. Also in 2008, a large number of football leagues in Hesse were renamed, with the Oberliga Hessen becoming the Hessenliga, the Landesliga becoming the Verbandsliga, the Bezirksoberliga becoming the Gruppenliga and the Bezirksliga becoming the Kreisoberliga.
