KENT PHOENIX

YOUTH AMERICAN FOOTBALL CLUB

Under 12 Cadet Flag American Football

Under 12 Cadet Team 

(Flames/Fire)

The Under 12 Flag team is aimed at our youngest players (8-12) and focuses on introducing the basic techniques. The two hour training session (10-12) for the cadets enables them to develop the skills required to play American Football in a fun and active session.

They learn from their first session that they are part of a larger Youth Team, this group train together for warm ups and footwork drills which ensures that all players are included and so starts their journey into the Phoenix football 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 will take part in friendly scrimmages against local opposition as well as entering the BAFA National League. We aim to provide opportunities to take part in an environment that encourages participation and development, promotes learning and development as well as offering a fun and supportive coaching manner. At our club we believe in a fun and friendly environment where the 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.
