DG Welcomes American Football


You may have seen some athletes kick a small, round ball around Dongguan, but you’ve never seen the version where the man with the ball is crushed (rugby, stay out of this!). American football, presented by FASTRAK will soon be coming to Dongguan in a big way. Taught by experienced, foreign coaches and using professional equipment, this is truly the real deal.

FASTRAK will host an event on October 14, which will include football demonstrations, live music, an authentic tunnel run into the field, and an award ceremony. The event will also kick off (no pun intended) the adult flag football season. Pre-register through WeChat (add ID: femaledragons).

“American football culture improves focus, teamwork, strategy, competition, physical health and language capacity. We believe our purpose is to bring this to the Chinese youth from the source,” said Garric Simmons, president of FASTRAK. “I have promoted the sport in international and Chinese schools since 2015 throughout southern China. I believe China will welcome this as long as it can experience the sport. All people: kids, adults, men and women can enjoy and learn.”
