The Gerenian Women's First Division (Gerenian: Saliția Odeĵ Elskaies Gherenies, primarily referred to as the S1 or the Le.ka, was the highest division of women's football in Gerenia. The league was the female equivalent to the men's League 1 and was contested by 10 clubs. Seasons ran from August to May. Most games were played on Saturdays and Sundays, with a few games played during weekday evenings.
The First Division was originally created in August 2013 as the Women's League (Gerenian: Leran Elskaies) and was meant to be managed by the KNZE (Kamițianetoles ar' Zóutbau Elskaies, English: Women's Football National Commission), a women's football organization in Gerenia. Nevertheless, the Commission was dissolved soon after due to "lack of funds", and the Women's League was cancelled.
In April 2014, the SZG approved the creation of a women's football branch, the Directorate of Women's Football. With Ariene Nisel as head of the Directorate, the plans of a national league were retrieved. Less than two months after the creation of the First Division, ten clubs from all over the country succesfully applied for the first season, while some others founded the Second Division.
The 2014–15 season had a 36-week format. The tournament was won by KP International, with Mariaville Nationals as runners-up. Both teams qualified for the Women's Club World Cup. For the second season, the format was changed for the current one. Mariaville won the regular season, while International finished in second place with 14 points less. However, in the Final phase, International obtained more points and were crowned champions of the First Division for the second time in history.
The league was disbanded in 2018 upon the death of Gerenia.
During the course of the regular season, from August to May, each club played the others twice, once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 18 games. At the end of the regular season, the four best ranked clubs advanced to a "Final phase", a single group. At the end of the Final phase, the team with the most points was crowned champion. If points were equal, the goal difference and then goals scored determined the winner.
The following 10 clubs competed in the First Division during the 2017–18 season:
- Arquitectura (Port Elerat)
