Dedication, Strength, And Unity

This is our team motto, and these are the key lessons we share with the children on our team in every session.

Who Are We...

We are an American Football team for young people between the ages of 16 and 19 years old. We have been running for ten years and are based at Larkhall Park in Stockwell. 

The purpose of the club is to bring young people together to learn and play American Football. In doing this they learn self-discipline, find a positive outlet for aggression, and break down territorial barriers that contribute to youth violence.

 Over the ten years, the club has been running, over 500 young people have taken part in sessions and a number of them have gone on to succeed in the sport including two who currently play in the NFL in the United States.

What We Do...

We currently train on Saturday mornings year-round between 11 am and 1 pm. We provide free coaching and free kit for young people who attend our sessions, we compete in the British American Football Association National League from April to September each year. 

Our session revolves not only around American football but in our key values. Our coaches are dedicated to empowering young people to become the best versions of themselves both mentally and physically, providing a safe space to have fun, make friends, and acknowledge their potential.1598727287_screenshot_2020-08-29_at_19.54.27.png

Why We Need You...

 We need your support to expand our project to create a new team for under 17-year-olds offering them a free safe space to learn and flourish through the medium of sport.1598726450_screenshot_2020-08-29_at_19.33.24.png

What Your Money Will Go Towards...

Any money contributed will go towards keeping this free for all children that attend and will help cover the cost of; pitch hire, league registration fees, travel fees, referee cost, and kit for each of the players.

Our Community...

Many of the children we support are from disadvantaged backgrounds and our team is a free of any charge, safe environment in which they can flourish. We are diverse and inclusive and ensure that each child is fully supported and provided for. The team nourishes not only their love for the game but also their sense of self, underlined by our values of Dedication, Strength and Unity thereby equipping them with tools to navigate their everyday lives.

With a team of dedicated coaches, we pride ourselves on creating strong teams that not only teach the fundamentals of American football but transferable skills of resilience, endurance, consistency, discipline and community.

What Our Goal Means To Us...

Achieving our goal will ensure that a new, younger generation of Renegades will have a team to support them in and out of the game. 

Achieving our goal ensures young people dodge the pitfalls that beset young people today.

Achieving our goal will help foster passion in our community and will not allow a disparity in household income to stop them from achieving their dreams.
