American Football

Description

QMU American Football has just been set up for the first time this year. Many have doubted that QMU could field an American Football team. The QMU Monarchs had other plans. This year we will be training everyone who is interested in the sport. We have officially partnered with the Edinburgh Wolves (Premiership AF Team) and they will be training us. There will be regular training sessions almost every week of the academic calendar. Furthermore, we will be doing various events throughout the year to fund raise, as we’ll need at least £16,000 to be able to buy shoulder pads, helmets, training equipment, and Jerseys.

 

The short-term goal is to raise enough funds to buy all necessary equipment. The main goal is to be competing and raising the QMU banner by October 2019. We will be competing in the BUCS Fixtures with other Universities and depending on the wins-losses record, a chance at a title through playoffs.

 

We have a great group of guys and our numbers so far have exceeded expectations. The beautiful thing about American Football is that everyone gets a chance to play and a team truly becomes a family. We are not a Men’s only team, we welcome anyone interested who is a student at QMU. There is still room for you and your friends to join the Monarchs family.
