About us

The Hertfordshire Cheetahs are the only American Football Club in Hertfordshire. Offering American Football to all aged 8 and above. Formed in 1986, the Cheetahs are one of the oldest continually running American Football teams in the Country. Whether you want to playcoachsupport, or sponsor the Cheetahs, there’s something for everyone within our family. 


From ages 8 upwards, our Flag, Youth, Junior and Senior Squads have numerous qualified coaches, with many years’ experience of coaching and playing in the UK. We’re one of the oldest running clubs in the country and take players from complete rookies to seasoned vets. If you’re looking to play, send a message to us here 


Helping our established team of highly knowledgeable coaches running drills to give you a better understanding of what makes our athletes tick, before developing your own coaching career by stepping onto the BAFCA coaching ladder. Committing your time to help the squad on the pitch, helping develop a community-based team is a great way to give something back. Contact us here if you are interested in coaching at the Cheetahs. 


Chain crew, ball boys, videographers, statisticians and more are needed for each home game, and have a critical game – we couldn’t play matches without them! We even need officials for our Youth and Flag tournaments that we host on a regular basis. Send a message to us here to see how you can help. 


American football isn’t a cheap sport to play – and with sponsorship of the club providing the abilities to include so many more players to the sport, we are more than happy to help promote your organisation throughout the club, county, and national league. We have several sponsorship opportunities so that it’s affordable for anyone looking to support us.
