Watford Cheetahs agree partnership with Queens' School
10:20am Friday 12th October 2012 in Sport
Watford Cheetahs have agreed a new partnership with the Queens' School Sporting Academy.
The American football team have kicked off their preparations for the new campaign with an early pre-season start at their new home ground.
The Cheetah senior squad are looking forward to a stronger showing in the British American Football Association (BAFA) National League with a push towards the play-offs and possible promotion to the BAFA Premiership.
Beyond the seniors, the Cheetahs Youth (14-16) team look to build on their success of last year and a new competitive junior (17-18) team is planned for 2013.
Head coach Nik Maxey said: "Our new partnership with the Queens School Sporting Academy has given us the opportunity to really develop our program and given us the flexibility to massively expand our training schedule.
"With seven months until the start of the senior league season, the Cheetahs are already in training for 2013. We have off season scrimmages with several teams planned, as well as two pre-season games provisionally booked, two combines, and a training camp weekend."
The Cheetahs are holding their first rookie day for juniors and a rookie day for seniors on November 4. The club welcomes any new or experienced players to get involved with the Cheetahs.
