Helsinki Wolverines team, competing in women’s American Football leagues is hosting a free beginner’s course!
In five practice sessions of the course, you will learn about the fundamental football skills in offense and defence from the perspective of different football player positions. Skills that we will practice include catching and carrying the ball, blocking and tackling. During the course participants will also have the opportunity to practice with football gear provided by the team. The course highlight is the game simulation practice at the final session, where participants put the skills learned at the course into action.
The course runs every Wednesday in November at 20-21:45 at the Tali Football Hall (Purokatu 8, Helsinki). You will only need sports gear suitable for indoors football hall, cleats or sneakers and your own water bottle.
There are no obligations and you do not need to attend every session – you can get a feel of the sport and your possible future playing position at the sessions that best fit your schedule. At the end of the course we will give more detailed information on how to get started in football and join our team.
Participants of the course are also welcome to attend the team practice (Tuesdays from 20-22 and Thursdays from 20:30-22, and extra conditioning sessions on Sundays – time to be specified later).
We value everyone, without discrimination! We warmly welcome you to join the Helsinki Wolverines Football Family, sign up now!
