Essex’s highest ranking and most successful American Football team kicks off our pre-season programme with an open try-out at Chelmsford’s Chancellor Park starting 10:30 on Saturday November 17th.
Test yourself at a variety of skills and challenges designed to give you a taste of what our sport is all about and see if you have what it takes to play with the best Essex has to offer!
Warm Sportswear and boots suitable for an artificial surface are all you’ll need as we put you through your paces on Chancellor Park’s new 3g pitch.
These sessions will be followed in the coming weeks with more specialised try-outs at our Colchester HQ the Corporal Budd V.C. Gymnasium as we get more involved with offensive, defensive, and special teams play to help you find the position perfect for you!
These sessions aren’t just for those new to the sport…..OH NO!
Players and Coaches with experience at any level of the sport are very welcome. So come knock off some of that old rust and get stuck back into the trenches!
