It couldn't be easier to get involved in playing American Football with the Inverness Blitz. There're teams at all age levels covering the different disciplines of American Football so there's something for everybody. Whether you're 12 years old and want to play non-contact American Football or 32 years old and want to don a helmet and shoulder pads and hit the field you'll find a place in the Blitz!
Okay so how do you get started?
Most younger participants get involved through their school. The Blitz runs flag football programmes in local primary and secondary schools throughout the year.
It's from these programmes that the relevant Highland Wildcats flag and contact teams select players from. The Wildcats squads then compete in national leagues playing teams from all around UK.
As well as flag football there's the opportunity to play contact American Football. For 12 - 13 year olds the Inverness Blitz offers clinics (generally during the school summer holidays) to give younger particiapants a taste of the kitted game. For anybody age 14 and over there's the Junior Highland Wildcats squad completing in the 5-man national league.
If there's no flag football programme being run in your school at present you should speak to your active school co-ordinator or contact the Inverness Blitz directly!
For school leavers and adults...
If you are no longer in school or are over 18 it's still really easy to get involved. You have the opportunity to join the main Highland Wildcats Squad that competes in the British American Football League (BAFL). If you are interested in finding out more, get in contact with the Blitz by email or phone!
