The Merseyside Nighthawks are pleased to announce the first of our ‘rookie’ sessions of our 2018 season preparation.
Every year, we run recruitment sessions across Merseyside to attract the best talent to our program. This off season will be no different and, having reached the semi-finals of the top level of UK American Football for the last two seasons, we are looking for hard working recruits who will be able to further progress the senior contact team. For information, our season runs from April to August, with the final, Britbowl, held in late August, with training sessions held on Sundays and midweek.
Our first session will be held at our training base, Childwall Sports College, on Sunday 29th October between 12:30pm and 2:30pm. Our coaches have developed a session to teach the fundamental skills required for the game. You will be taken through some blocking drills, some catching & passing drills and some ball carrying drills. This session is designed to teach you some of the basics and is suitable for players of all skill levels; be it new to the game or a seasoned veteran.
As this session is non-contact, all you need to bring with you is some clothes to train in, some suitable footwear (we will be training on a grass field) and some water.
Further sessions will be held in December and January, so if you can’t make this one, don’t fret!
