Hamilton Youth Team

buccaneersHamilton Buccaneers

The Hamilton Buccaneers Youth team were formed in 2012 and welcome boys and girls aged 13 – 16 to play contact football and 10 – 13 to play non-contact flag football.

For contact football we play a five-a-side version of the sport and compete in the Scottish Youth Conference of the British American Football Association’s National Leagues against Edinburgh Wolves, East Kilbride Pirates and the Highland Wildcats.  Our flag football team is still in its infancy, and there are currently no other competitive teams at this age group in Scotland, but we hope during 2018 to be able to arrange some friendly tournaments.

Costs and equipment – contact football ages 13-16

We supply all necessary playing equipment and team uniform – all you need is suitable practice clothing and footwear and a gumshield. Player subs are £180 a year, payable by a £15 monthly standing order split across 12 months from Oct-Oct.  This covers expenses for training, tournaments, equipment and other running costs and allows us to budget across the year. In addition, parents or guardians will be required to register their youth player with the league each year for competition and insurance purposes. This currently costs £20.00.
