The Gold Coast Stingrays Gridiron Football Club offer an energetic, skill-based program of Youth Gridiron to 10-13 year-olds, boys and girls, based on educational fitness activities/drills and social development. The schedule runs for ten-weeks, introducing
- Positional Skill Development Drills [equipment introduced]
- Flag Football [non-contact segment]
- later in the program, participants graduate [10- 13 years] into “contact” segment
Participants learn in an age-appropriate manner so as to foster confidence and a sense of worth in safe, skill-based play.
In 2017, we will be entering the fourth year of the Stingrays Youth Football Program and it’s looking as if the numbers will increase once again. The purchase of new training equipment, thanks to a Queensland State Government grant and a Gold Coast City Council Division 8 grant, will only improve the experience of learning how to play Gridiron with the Stingrays. More details regarding Youth Football sign-on date will be advised later in the year.
