The Dublin Rebels are hosting an NFL-style training camp for new recruits on Sunday, May 17th from 11am to 2pm at Seapoint RFC, Killiney. The camp is open to everyone over the age of 18 – no experience required!
The Rebels’ coaching staff will take new recruits through the fundamentals of American football: blocking, tackling, catching, throwing and more. Everyone will get a chance to try out the football pads and helmets and experience the full-contact nature of the game in a safe, controlled environment.
Please note - this is not a try-out. Anyone who wants to play American Football will be invited to join our club where you will be given the opportunity to learn the basics under the guidance of some of the countries top coaches. You will also have the opportunity to play alongside some of the countries finest players, many of whom will be representing their country later this year.
Whether you’ve never even seen an oval ball before, or you play at All-Madden level on your X-Box, or you’ve played the game for years, the Dublin Rebels’ Training Camp will provide a fun introduction to the sport and what it’s like to play with the Rebels. Anyone can try out for the Rebels – the current roster comprises players of all shapes and sizes, aged between 18 and 40 playing both full contact in Ireland's top Division (SBC) and Flag Football.
The Dublin Rebels are Ireland’s all-time most successful team, with 7 national championship titles and a record of 111-30-2 in Irish and European competitions. This recruitment camp comes at a time when we are making a charge for our 8th National Title so there's no better time to get involved!
