BOSTON – New England’s top women’s tackle football team has released details about upcoming tryouts and off-season training activities (OTAs). The Boston Renegades will conduct four development training camps this fall at Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere, Mass.:
• Saturday, September 24th, 2:30p-5:00p
• Saturday, October 1st, 11:30a-2:00p
• Saturday, October 22nd, 9:30a-12:00p
• Saturday, November 12th, 9:30a-12:00p
Prospective players are invited to meet Renegades coaches and returning veterans to learn basic concepts of 11-player football and engage in physical skills training. Attendees can expect to participate in non-contact drills to develop general and position-specific abilities like footwork, blocking, route running, ball handling, and more. In addition to being an opportunity for women to learn the mechanics of football, the OTAs double as tryouts for the 2017 season.
“Previous playing experience is NOT a prerequisite for prospective players,” states team owner and Linebackers Coach Molly Goodwin. “The sport of football requires diversity, and to be successful we need players of all shapes, sizes, skill sets, and backgrounds. You might have been a high school or college athlete, maybe you’re a gym rat, or maybe you have never played organized sports before. Bring a desire to play and a commitment to excellence and we will turn you into a football player.”
Prospective players are encouraged to attend multiple OTAs in advance of regular team practices which begin in January. The Renegades’ football season runs from April through July. More information about the OTAs and how to participate can be found on the Boston Renegades’ website at bostonrenegadesfootball.org/join.
