NEWS | Luton Open Session this Sunday

23 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 fourth and final Open Session of the month takes place this Sunday in Luton.

The session runs from 10am to 12pm at Lealands High School, and registrations open at 9.45am.

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.
