The Under 17’s were formed in 2012 to provide contact American Football for players aged 14-17 in the Tamworth area. In the year the team was formed, the team started with just 7 players, competing in only 3 out of 12 fixtures, finishing with 0 – 12 record, the lack of squad size really did impact on the performance of the team. From there the team has gone from strength to strength. The club are now a regular playoffs contender, have grown to a team of 14 strong and continue to develop young talent in the Midlands area! The future is looking bright for Tamworth Phoenix Youth and will continue to grow and improve.
