The Academy is undertaking fantastic work, inspiring thousands of young people to challenge themselves through the sport of American Football.


I would recommend the Academy to anyone!''

We're really proud of the work we do at the Yorkshire Academy in schools, at weekend clubs, camps and events across the North of England and it makes it all worthwhile when we see young people enjoy the sport.


We are always grateful when people take time to recognise our efforts so we have collated here some of the kind things people have said about us.
