Plymouth Blitz invites you to join the family! The team is open to players of all abilities and ages, whether American Football is new to you or you've played before. One of the best aspects of American Football is that there are positions for people of all body types and athletic abilities; so you can play to your strengths! We understand that a lot of people won't have played American Football before. That's why we train everyone from the ground up, meaning that everyone starts the season at the same level, giving everyone the opportunity of game time.
Blitz always competes. Whether it be in training or on gameday, we always bring 100%. In the last few years, several of our players have earned to privilige of being invited to play for teams across Europe, including teams in Sweden and Finland over the summer. We have training at least twice during the week, and on a Sunday (unless we have game). All training sessions are run by qualified coaches who are both willing and able to coach you to reach your football potential!
We have weekly socials on Wednesday nights. These socials are often in collaboration with the cheerleaders or other societies to add some extra fun, as well as some weird and wonderful costume themes! These are great opportunities to take a break from the stresses of uni life; bond with your teamates and get to know other clubs!
Aside from Wednesday socials, the team often likes to gather after training or home games on Sunday to watch the NFL. This is great for bettering our knowledge of the sport as well as bonding as a unit!
We have 8 regular season games against our Divison 2 opponents (Bath Spa Bulldogs, UWE Bullets 2, Gloucester Gladiators and Solent Redhawks) and then potentially more games if we make playoffs. Additionally, we have an annual game known as the Devon Bowl against our rivals, Exeter Demons, where we look to bring home the coveted Devon Bowl trophy! Finally, after the end of the season, we welcome back our alumni for our Old Boys charity match.
IronFest is an annual event held by our sponsor, McCaulay's gym. This is a great night with lots of hype where the team encourages and helps each other and works on hitting PBs.
