American Football for All
American Football is a sport for all ages, genders, shapes and sizes. Competing, Coaching, Officiating, Photographers, Video Personnel. The Panthers are always seeking to add to our family.
Our Athletes come from a diverse sporting background. Some have taken up American Football as adults, others have played and continue to play sports such as rugby, basketball, GAA, soccer and tennis. The only requirement of our Athletes is they give it their maximum effort
Many of the Panthers Coaches, on all three teams, have internaitonal experience and will provide only the highest quality coaching to anyone starting out in their American Football career. Adult, Youth and Flag all have coaches of the highest calibre.
The Panthers are a family club. With three teams, Athletes, Coaches, Sideline Staff, Referees, Officals, Video Analysis, Photographers and everyone in between. We are always seeking new members.
We are always seeking new members. Over half of our playing squad have 3 years or less experience. All of the athletes on our Youth team are new to the sport.
