MEET THE TEAMS

The Academy runs a local league for young players to hone their skills at flag and contact.  Most teams have a "Cadet" section that allows 8-13 year olds to play flag before they join the youth kitted teams which play aged 14-17 (5 -v- 5).  All youngsters are given the opportunity to try for "Cornish Sharks Youth Kitted" which is the County team that plays in the national league. The Cornish Sharks Youth (previously called Team Cornwall) have been successful every year.  In their second year they qualified for the national finals coming third in the nation and last year they brought the playoffs to Cornwall for home field advantage for the first time..
