NEWS | MK Open Session this Sunday

10 Nov

Open to those interested in playing for the Ouse Valley Eagles senior (18+), Bedford Blackhawks Youth (U17) or Milton Keynes Redwings (U17) full contact teams, as well as the Blackhawks senior flag (16+) team, the second Open Session of the month takes place this Sunday in Milton Keynes.

The session runs from midday to 2pm at Stantonbury Campus, and registrations open at 11.30am.

If you have always fancied having a go why not try it out and see how you get on? No previous experience is necessary, as our team of qualified coaches will put you through your paces running a series of non-contact passing, catching, running and blocking drills designed to give you a real taste of American Football.
