JagTag Session at Allianz Park


It wasn't just the Jags superstars on display at Allianz Park during their open training session as 200 school children got involved themselves by taking part and being coached in JagTag.

As part of the Jaguars grassroots community programme, the children from Brent in London were given expert coaching from the Jaguars' practice squad players which included recent first-teamer Rashod Hill.


JagTag is being delivered in schools all over London with 1500 children of all ages, abilities and genders now playing regularly and learning a new sport to increase their confidence and helping them flourish on and off the pitch.

The Jaguars have been particularly active in Fulham and Lambeth with schools such as Dunraven School really benefitting from the Jags' presence and commitment to the London community. The grassroots scheme has grown rapidly and participation among children who don't usually get involved in sport has been particularly high.


Barney Day, a Head of PE at Dunraven, said: "JagTag has been really embraced by our pupilswhich has been superb. They have really enjoyed trying something new and people who have been there from the start continue to play now. It is a great sport for mixed participation."

With both player and cheerleaders on hand to offer advice, tips and coaching it was a carnival atmosphere on the pitch for the children who were getting a rare opportunity to have a run out with real NFL players.

Hopefully the Jaguars can further inspire the kids even further by getting the win against the Indianapolis Colts at Wembley!
