Under 11 Cadet Team
Under 11 Cadet Team
The Under 11 Flag team is aimed at our youngest players (8-11) and focuses on introducing the basic techniques. The two hour training session (1000-1200) for the cadets enables them to develop the skills required to play American Football in a fun and active session.
They learn from the first session that they are part of a larger youth team. We work carefully to have all our teams work together to form bonds and lasting friendships within our Phoenix family.
No expensive equipment is needed for the cadets. All they need is a gum shield, suitable footwear and plenty of water.
Flag American Football is a non-contact introduction into the sport, it is mixed gender and we are seeing positive growth in the number of female participants within our team
So the cadets can show through the year the skills that they have learnt we take part in regular events.
In 2018/19 we took part in friendly scrimmages against local opposition as well as entering the BAFA National League.
In 2019/20 we played a number of locally arranged friendly tournaments,
Sadly 2020 has seen us cancel a number of planned events due to the Covid outbreak but we hope we can still arrange some friendly games in the autumn.
We aim to provide opportunities to take part in an environment that encourages participation. development and skills progression. We offer supportive coaching that promotes learning and strongly believe in providing a fun and friendly environment. Results are not wholly important but emphasising that taking part along with the opportunity to learn and make friends is.
Good sportsmanship and fair play are key factors at this stage in the development, teaching this from this age helps ensure that as they progress throughout the club the ethos remains with them.
Having had fun and learnt the basics they are ready to progress to the U14 flag team where they can really work on the skills that they have learnt.
