Tarannau Aberyswyth American Football Club, has been part of Aberystwyth university since 1992, being one of the first univeristies to have an American football team and as a club have a very proud history, This is evident by our strong links with Old boys who help the club with funding, coaching and sponsorship.
American football is a fairly niche sport in the UK, but with the NFL international series in London, the sports popularity has continued to grow due to the exciting and intellectual nature of the sport. As a result most people will have never had the oopprtunity to play american football until they reach this level, so if you've watched the NFL and found it to interest you or enjoy physical contact come on down to our training sessions at Blaendolau Playing Fields, on Wednesday 14:00-1600 and at the Astro Turf (sports centre) Sunday 14:30-16:30. All equipment is provided. We also have a classroom session to evaluate film and improve yiur understanding of the playbook every Tuesday 630 till 730 in ibers building 0.30.
We use Hudl for all updates to the playbook, we can see footage of other teams, and you get to create your very own highlight reel.
We compete in League 2A North and play six regular season games every year three home games and three away, with varying degrees of difficulty. This year we will play Leeds, lancaster, Bradford, Edge Hill, Liverpool and over varsity rivals Bangor. Last year we had our best season in the past 3 years finishing with a record of 3-4, we want to improve on this and despite losing 4 games every game was very competitive, and physical we were all tired after but games days are brilliant.
We host our socials every wednesday starting at Lord Beechings (One of our sponsors), run by our social sec. We regularly have joint socials with the cheerleaders, adding to what is one of the best societies in the university. We also have numerous joint socials throughout the year this is a great way to meet new people in other societies and gives us an opportunity to try new sports and to get more people invloved with the club. Also come join us at Bar 46 to watch NFL redzone, and grab a bit to eat aswell!
