SSP and Derby Braves bringing NFL to City!


With American Football a growing presence in the UK we have teamed up with the Derby University Braves Team to give schools the opportunity to learn and try out a sport most people will have seen but not played.

Similar to Tag Rugby, “Flag” Football is a non-contact version of the game to develop spacial awareness, teamwork and some of the basic skills of the game as well as sport transferable ones.

The event, which comes only a few days after the Superbowl in America will include a number of activities led by Braves players and staff as well an opportunity to play games to showcase the skills they have learnt.

Schools are invited to bring a group of up to 20 Year 5 and 6 children for this unique experience which will hopefully lead to the development of further activity in Derby in the future.
