    Youth & Junior American Football

    Below the senior level, contact football in the UK is split into two age groups – U19s and U16s. 16-18 year-olds are eligible for the u19s league whilst 13-15 year-olds can get involved with an U16s team.  Bursting with enthusiasm, they enjoy the game, enjoy the cooperation, enjoy excelling and enjoy finding their strengths. They have discovered that being part of this team has helped them with the schoolwork, their social skills, their ability to organise and discipline themselves and their ability to motivate both themselves and each other.

    Under 16s American football is well established in the UK and competitions are held in the summer in the form of 5 vs 5 tournaments. The Under 16s team play in tournaments from April until August, always on Saturdays.

    Each team takes part in four tournaments, each comprising two individual games. This gives them a regular season of eight games. Divisional winners from these tournaments, plus the best runners up, qualify for north and south playoff tournaments at the end of the regular season, and from there the best four teams will go forward to play for the National Championship. Players must be under 16 on 31st August in the year preceding the playing season, the minimum age is 13 years.

    Under 19s have a regular season from April until August, with 6 regular season games and play offs in September.  Games are played on Sundays, usually as a double header with a Senior game.

    Teams for 16-18 year-olds may be either 9v9 or 7v7 depending on the level of competition they are eligible for. The 9v9 teams compete for the National Championship whilst the team who tops the 7v7 competition are awarded the Division 2 title.  Players must be under 19 on 31st of August in the year preceding the playing season, the minimum age is 16.

    The present team members want more of you to join them, so come along and give it a try. Youth athletes aged between 13-18 train with the senior team and are separated during contact elements. Remember, newcomers are always welcome!
