We are in the process of rebuilding and reformatting all of the BatchellerPad, USHLstuff and
MusketeersStuff web pages.  There are still some missing pictures, poor spacing, boarder issues and questionable spelling
 I am busily chipping away at these issues.

In 2000 the newly formed Sioux City Attack’s joined the twenty-one team Indoor Football League (IFL). Finishing the regular season
in fourth place with nine wins and four losses. They would win in the opening round of play-offs defeating the Lincoln Lighting,
however, the following weekend they would lose to the third place Bismark Blaze. The Attack’s huge success both on and off the
field prompted the sale of the Attack to a larger market at the completion of the season.

Indoor football was not through however, and thanks to several local Sioux City businessmen…
The Sioux City Bandits started play the next season in 2001. They would play as part of the newly formed National Indoor Football
League (NIFL). Over the next two decades the Bandits would build a winning tradition showcasing the talents of local player and
coaches. As of 2022 the Bandits have played in five league championship games and have been victorious in three of them.

The Bandits would change leagues several times; 2005 it would join the United Indoor Football (UIF) and in 2009 join the Indoor Football
league (IFL).
 In 20011 the Bandits would join the American Professional Football League (APFL) where they played for two seasons. In
2013 many of the APFL teams left to join the newly started Champions Indoor Professional Football League (CPIFL).

2015 would see the CIPF would absorb a pair of other indoor football leagues, adding more teams and rebranding as the Champions|
Indoor Football (CIF). In 2024 bandits would leave the CIF and join the existing National Arena League (NAL) would absorb six
new teans from the for CIF from Kansas, Nebraska, Idaho, Colorado and Iowa.
