Junior American Football Team
The East Kilbride Pirates Junior team was formed in 2013 and welcomes boys and girls aged 16-19. We play an nine-man contact version of the sport and compete in the Junior Conference of the British American Football Association’s National Leagues.
Training takes place on Sundays from January at 3-5pm indoors on 3G at Hamilton Palace sports ground, and then outdoors from April at 12.30-3pm at Duncanrig High School in East Kilbride until the end of August. A mid-week session will be added from mid-April onwards.
Costs and equipment
We will supply all necessary playing equipment and team uniform – all you’ll need is suitable practice clothing and footwear and a gumshield. Player subs are £180 a year, payable by 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, players are required to be registered with the league each year for competition and insurance purposes. This currently costs £25.00.
