[EVENT] Volunteer with Education Partnerships Africa in Summer 2015!
Date: 5th November Time: 20:00 Where: Bateman Auditorium Interested in development, but skeptical of “unsustainable gap year” projects? EPAfrica works in over twenty schools across three regions in Kenya and Uganda and we recruit around fifty students each year from universities in Oxford, Cambridge, and London. EPAfrica aims to make a long-term impact in the schools we work in through the investment of durable educational resources and the creation of sustainable health, careers and gender equality programmes. We do not ask our volunteers to be teachers or builders, we ask them to immerse themselves in the school environment and make as large and sustainable an impact as possible. Interested? Come along to our information evening; arrive at 19:40 for a quick chat, and 20:00 for a presentation. Apply now at www.epafrica.org! Applications close at midnight 8th November. For any questions, please email epafrica .
[NOTICE] Python’s- American football
Did you know Cambridge has it’s own American Football team? Or that you can join, irrespective of experience? Come to a training session to give it a try!
Head to https://www.facebook.com/CambridgePythons/events to see when we’re holding our next one.
The Cambridge University American Football Team (the Cambridge “Pythons”) re-formed three seasons ago and plays full contact against other universities in BUCS, reaching the National Playoffs last season. The team is looking to recruit more players than ever this year to build on our success. This season we have an expanded coaching staff, awesome new kit, are applying for Blues status, and will be playing Varsity in Cambridge at Grange Road (CURUFC home ground). It’s going to be a great year, whether you want to play or support!
You don’t need to have played or even watched the game before. Most of the team had never played before coming to Cambridge and were a complete mixture of shapes/heights/builds – don’t think you won’t be right for it. There’s a position for everyone on an American Football team and all kit is provided, so there is no need to worry about that.
We’ve had a big influx in new players, most of whom are new to the sport, but are still looking for more people to join us. If you’re interested in what all the fuss is about we’d love to meet you and show you the ropes and under the guidance of a large and experienced coaching staff you’ll develop quickly into a play-maker.
If you feel like giving it the UK’s fastest growing sport a go, check out our events page (https://www.facebook.com/CambridgePythons/events), drop our Facebook page a message (https://www.facebook.com/CambridgePythons) and join the ‘New Players Forum: Cambridge University Pythons American Football’ group (http://bit.do/NewPlayersForum) to ask any questions you may have – it’s full of returners and new recruits who were once in the same position as you that will be happy to help.
