American Football

BRITISH AMERICAN FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION (BAFA) COVID-19 GOVERNMENT APPROVED AND RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES

Who are we?

With a College Bowl XXI title, numerous divisional crowns and the only sports club at UWE to boast an undefeated streak in Varsity, the UWE Bullets are UWE's most successful sports team. Head Coach, Daniel Maher, heads into the season with the goal to win it all while also boasting a new second team to excel upcoming and talented new players. This brings the Bullets a great affiliation with the Filton Pride Academy, one of the most highly-rated youth American Football programmes in the UK.

This year we are pleased to welcome Bullets Alumni, James Green to the role of Head Coach for our brand new Second Team, making us the first and only university programme in the country to offer a second team. This gives us the fantastic opportunity to help grow the sport and take on as many new players as possible. It will enable new players to grow and learn the sport and as you progress through university, so will you progress through the team. As you get better and better as a player you will be able to move up into the first team and play in the Southern Premiership.

Most of our players have never played American Football before joining the Bullets family, all levels of experience are welcome in the team. The experienced coaching staff will teach you the rules and techniques needed in the game. Our coaches can not do it all; you as a player should be willing to listen, learn and have the will to win.
