    Hi everyone,I am starting Teesside university in September and have been looking through their websites trying to get to grips with everything etc. I am quite a sporty person and would quite like to take part in some sports teams but with me being a mature student (26) I am wondering if I could? Are there separate teams for matures? I really like the look of American football but being a mature student has been playing on my mind. If anyone can help answer if I could or not I would be grateful. Thanks

    American Football would welcome you and your age would probably be in your favour if you have trained and taken sport seriously in the past. It's not uncommon in the US for college players to delay going to college for this reason. AF teams usually have a really good social side. Finding 40 players for one team is a challenge so no, no separate team for mature players.
