We want to offer more young people the opportunity to try American Football and to engage with boys and girls aged 14-18 who may be disinterested in mainstream sports. Our program will support additional midweek training and development sessions to Engage, Inspire and Support all participants.
We will offer free training sessions to introduce our sport before progressing to more advanced skills and eventually fully kitted football and National League competition. We hope to provide more young people the opportunity to reach the highest levels of our sport and encourage development of coaching from a younger age to offer skills progression and greater life outcomes.
Our sport requires a great deal of mandatory safety equipment to play and specific training equipment to fully develop skills. We will use the money raised to purchase and provide this equipment and reduce any financial restrictions young people may have in participation. We are based in a low social and economic area and being able to reduce the costs for participation will enable us to engage with a greater proportion of the community.
