The Dixie Blues were a former member of the Womens Football League, where they were runners-up in the first championship game in 2001 and went on to win the Championship Title in 2002. After the league disbanded, they joined the Women's Football Association, where they won a second Championship Title in 2003. This league also folded after a single season and the team spent the next two seasons in the Independent Women's Football League (IWFL). The Dixie Blues then moved to the Women's Football League (WFL), where they won the 2006 and 2007 World Championship Titles.
The Blues joined the Womens Football Alliance (WFA) in 2009 and have become one of the charter franchises in the league, winning a total of 5 Division Titles since the 2009 season and three straight division titles from 2009-2011. Up until 2013, the Dixie Blues were the only WFA charter member never to have lost a regular-season game in league play. As of the end of the 2017 regular season, their current record stands at 136-22. The Dixie Blues begin their 18th season in April 2018.
