FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

“I have never played American Football before, does that matter?”

Most of our players have never played American Football before joining the Demons. Our experienced coaching staff will teach you the rules and techniques of the game, and turn you into an American Football player in no time at all. All you need is the ability to listen, learn and have a will to win.

“Do I need my own equipment?”

No! American Football Equipment is expensive, roughly £250 for an average full set of equipment. The club has a small supply of equipment which can be loaned to players for the season. However, most players decide to buy their own kit, especially if they are keen to play for local teams during university holidays.

“How can I learn more about American Football?”

If you are a complete beginner to the sport, check out the NFLUK beginners guide to American Football. Other good ways to learn more about Football, are to watch the NFL Coverage on Sunday evenings on Sky Sports 4 and other coverage online. American Football films also give a good insight into the game. Unusually, EA Sports’ John Madden American Football Video Games are an excellent way of learning more about the sport. But there is no better way about learning the sport than strapping a helmet and shoulder pads and going out and playing it!

SQUASH AND BEYOND…

You can join the Demons at any point in the season but the majority of our players join the team at University of Exeter Squash in the second week of September.

If you want to join the best university sports team in Exeter, and miss us at the Squash, then email us at exeterdemons@live.co.uk or americanfootball.captain@exeter.ac.uk. We will let you know about how you can go about joining the team.
