About Us


Formed in 1985, the East Kilbride Pirates are Scotland’s leading American Football club.

We aim to make our club a welcoming place where everyone can feel supported and able to be themselves.  We believe that everyone should be able to participate in and enjoy American football in a safe and positive environment – whoever they are and whatever their background.  We welcome players and volunteers of all genders, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities and backgrounds regardless of experience.

The club is amateur and run by volunteers, and comprises a mixed adult contact team for ages 19+ , women’s only teams for flag and contact for ages 17+,  an under 19s contact team for 16-19 year olds, two under 16s contact teams for players aged 13-16 year olds and a flag team for ages 10-13.
