BOSTON – The Boston Renegades, the reigning Women’s Football Alliance National Champions, will conduct three football skills development camps this fall.
Female athletes are invited 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 area women to learn the mechanics of football, the offseason training activities (OTAs) double as scouting sessions for the upcoming season which begins in April 2020.
“This is a great opportunity for those interested in joining the team to get a feel for how a practice is run, and meet some of the staff and returning players,” said General Manager Benjamin Brown. They are up-tempo practices focusing on individual skills. They are non-contact; no helmets or pads are necessary.”
“Previous playing experience is NOT a prerequisite to participate,” emphasized team executive 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 shape you into competitive a football player.”
The OTAs will take place at the team’s home field, Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere, Mass.
Session #1: Saturday, September 28th, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Session #2: Saturday, October 12th, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Session #3: Saturday, November 2th, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Those hoping to join the team are encouraged to attend all three OTAs in advance of regular team practices which begin in January. The Renegades’ football season runs from April through July. The Renegades will seek their third consecutive league title in 2020.
