What an honour to be a part of the first American Football team in the SESKU area. Oasis Church is excited about the partnership and the relationship we are involved in.

Meet The Head Coach of GRIDIRON

Coach Wake

" March 2019 sees the exciting launch of the first SESKU (South Elmsall/South Kirkby/Upton) based American Football youth program. The local community have been very supportive and the interest from the youth has been phenomenal. The squad is made up of under 17's from the community, some of which have not participated in organised sport before.

Through American Football we look to engage and encourage disenfranchised youth by directly tackling the issues that affect them. To work with these young people we must first build relationships of mutual trust and understanding. This work is done by creating a structured, disciplined and competitive environment that is designed to develop the individual both mentally & physically. During this challenging process we offer continuous guidance and positive encouragement.
Proverbs 27 verse 17 “AS iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” lies at the heart of all we do."


We are having a skills day at Minsthorpe Community College, where youths aged 17  and under can register and try their hand.


..............is to provide opportunities for youth (under 17) in the SESKU (South Elmsall/South Kirkby/Upton), Ackworth & Hemsworth area to play contact American Football. There will be 3 Practices (training sessions) a week starting in March 2019. All equipment will be provided and fully qualified & experienced coaching given. Further details to follow...
