The Plymouth Blitz are coming off their most successful season to date, having won their conference for the second season in a row; gaining promotion and making it to the division 2 south playoff finals.
A British University team based in South West Devon, Plymouth University’s “Team of the Year 2017” will be competing in the BUCS 1A South West and are looking to build on their success from last season.
After having conceding the lowest amount of points (average per game) in Blitz history, Plymouth are looking at making further improvements to their defence. Plymouth are looking to enlarge their coaching staff with the addition of positional coaches on the defensive side of the ball: most notably defensive backs. Whilst these are the desirable coaching positions, we will still happily consider applications from coaches who wish to use their experience for other roles. Both new or experienced coaches are welcome.
Initially during preseason (Late September to Early November), we have three training sessions a week – two weekday evenings along with a Sunday morning session. During the regular season we have two evening training sessions during the week, and typically a competitive fixture on the Sunday. These sessions take place at different locations across Plymouth.
