Taster Day Sunday 13th Oct

The 2013-14 season for the Pythons is starting soon and we want new players! Anyone who is a current full-time Cambridge University student is eligible to play. Previous experience of playing the sport, whilst welcome, is not required – the Pythons have six qualified coaches who will teach rookies the fundamentals – the majority of players who have joined the team since it was formed have been non-Americans with no prior playing experience.

One of the great things about American football is that no matter what your size or shape there is a position on the field for you. The social side of the team is also great with a lively mix of students from across the university – the annual Super Bowl Party event held each February has established itself as one of the most popular events held at the Cambridge Union!

Last season was a successful one for the Pythons in the university league, reaching the playoffs after finishing second in their division. Wins included sweet victories against both Anglia Ruskin and Oxford! There was also the historic landmark of a Pythons player being awarded a Full Blue in American football (the first in the history of both Cambridge and Oxford). These are exciting times to be a Python.

The Pythons will be holding a taster session for people interested in the joining. It will be at Parkers Piece on Sunday 13th October at 11.00 – please be in suitable clothes and footwear for running around a field in October.
