American Football Coaching

Our sports students benefitted from a three week coaching course provided by the Gateshead Senators, an American Football team. The players visited the College to give students a greater understanding of American Football. They provided sessions to help the students develop their knowledge, and complete the Practical Team Sports module.

The students learned about the skills, techniques, tactics, rules, and regulations of this unfamiliar sport. This was a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn and practice a different sport from the more traditional sports played.

The Gateshead Senators were enthusiastic and actively encouraging. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have been signposted to the club is they wish to join an American Football team.

Barry Poskett, Curriculum Manager, said: “It is great to see the students learning different sports. Students do not always see the range of sports that they can take part in so it is fantastic for them to learn and hear about a broad range of sports.”
