Netherlands: Dutch Youth Tackle Football U14 Is Taking Off

The renowned Dutch American Football organisations, Spijkenisse Scouts and Amsterdam Crusaders, joined forces by setting up the all time first Dutch Youth Tackle (under age 14) team. 

Both Crusaders and Scouts youth teams have been very successful in the Dutch Flag Football league over the past years (Amsterdam Crusaders is the reigning 2013 National Peewee Flag Football Champion) and the coaching staff and players are motivated to bring their game to the next (contact) level. 

The newly formed Dutch U14 Tackle team will be playing their first full contact game on the 21st September in Amsterdam and the opponents are the renowned Cologne Falcons from Germany. The second game will be in Spijkenisse on the 12th October against another well-known German team: the Cologne Crocodiles.
