Tampere saints U17s

Team info

The U17 team predominantly consists of players born in 2008 and 2007 for the 2023-24 season. Players born in late 2006 can also play in the U17 league during the 2024 season. U17 girls can play in the junior team or the women’s representative team.


We warmly welcome new players interested in American football, regardless of their background, size, or other attributes.


American football is a so-called late-entry sport that can be started in youth or adulthood. Welcome to our relaxed but goal-oriented team! You can come and try it out at any point during the season. The club provides loaner equipment, which usually allows you to get started without significant initial investments.


In the 2023 season, the Tampere Saints’ U17 team competed in the 11 vs. 11 SM series against the Helsinki East City Giants, Helsinki Roosters, Helsinki Wolverines, and Seinäjoki Crocodiles. The team also featured players from the Pori Bears and Hämeenlinna Tigers.


The season fee for 2024 is 550€ for the entire year, plus a club membership fee of 50€ .


Feel free to ask for more information and come join us in starting a new and exciting hobby!

During the winter season, the team practices at the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Center, Pirkkahalli, and the Tredun sports hall on Sammonkatu.


We also offer fitness training sessions in Liikuntakeskus Poltteella that support the sport. During the playing season, we practice on the artificial turf fields in Koivistonkylä and Pyynikki. U17 players especially train together with the men’s representative team during the winter season. 


New enthusiasts are welcome to join the practices. Don’t hesitate to get in touch via email at junioripaalikko@tamperesaints.fi
