Northern Lights Football

Try out for American Football in Oulu!

Oulu Northern Lights Football Team organizes an American Football boot camp in the fall 2023 for both men and women. The practices will be held at the Castren stadium (Paulaharjuntie 43) starting on the 11th of September.

The boot camp is a great opportunity for you to get to know the sport and get a feel for the equipment used. The practices are organized twice a week for a total of four weeks: on Mondays (from 19:50 onwards) and Thursdays (from 19:50 onwards).

After the camp concludes it’s possible to join the men’s or the women’s team.

Do I need to know the sport before attending?

It’s perfectly ok if you’ve never tried football before! You don’t have to know the rules. It doesn’t even matter if you’ve ever watched an American Football game. We’ll teach you everything you need. Contact the contact person of your respective team and sign up for the camp!

What kind of equipment do I need?

There’s no need for special equipment to attend the camp. You simply need clothing suitable for athletic activities and shoes for artificial turf. Soccer cleats are very good. Running shoes can work, too.

Do men and women practice together?

Men and women practice at the same time, but separately.

Who is it for?

The boot camp is for anyone 16 years old or older who is interested in the sport. It costs 20 euros to attend (15 euros with the Unimove app).
