The Hastings Conquerors American Football Club, the UK’s first Co-operative Fan-Owned American Football Club are back, hot off the heels of the 2015 American Football Season.
A lot of work went into this year’s season and it worked with one win and a smattering of losses but for a team made up of rookies and a few guys who had played American Football at university, it’s a pretty good outing.
The Hastings Conquerors will host a series of rookie days starting at Battle Sports Centre November 1st 1100 – 1300 which is open to people who have never even taken a snap of a football to those who are veterans and diehard fans of the sport.
This Rookie Day will be a non-kitted session allowing rookies and new players to the team a chance to take part in all events.
Hastings Conquerors also has a Cadet team for boys and girls aged 8 – 14. The Cadets play flag football which is a non-contact version of the sport. This is a great activity for young people as it gives the feeling of being part of a team and has a great social aspect to it as well as helping to keep fit.
Training started up again Friday 18th September 1730 – 1900 and will run until mid-December. Any child who wishes to take part is welcome to come along and give it a go. They will need a parent / guardian to come and complete a brief contact form. The first session is free and then just £2 thereafter.
