BOSTON – New England’s top women’s tackle football team has released details about upcoming tryouts and organized team activities (OTAs) in the offseason. The Boston Renegades will conduct three development training camps this fall at Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere, Mass.:
Session #1: Saturday, September 23rd, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Session #2: Saturday, October 14th, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Session #3: Saturday, November 4th, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
“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.”
Prospective players 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 women to learn the mechanics of football, the OTAs double as tryouts for the upcoming season which begins in April 2018.
“Previous playing experience is NOT a prerequisite for prospective players,” states 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 turn you into a football player.”
Prospective players 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.
