The Hertfordshire Cheetahs are proud to announce that they will be launching an Under 17 flag squad for the 2016 season.
With the continued growth of the Under 12 flag team since its inaugural 2015 season and with players graduating from the squad, the Cheetahs have launched the new flag team to compete in tournaments across the country. The move now means that the Cheetahs offer American Football for everyone from the age of 8 and up.
Flag Coaches Leigh Richardson and Scott Bellchambers will oversee the programme until new coaches are found to take the under 17 squad forward.
Club Chairman Kevin Knight said “Our flag programme under Coaches Leigh Richardson and Scott Bellchambers has grown and grown and saw great success from the start. We now need to expand on this success and offer the opportunity for continuation in the sport with the Cheetahs and have therefore decided to launch an Under 17 Flag Squad. It is an exciting time for the Cheetahs and we hope to involve new coaches to take the Under 17 squad forward”.
