Pirates host LEAP Sports Scotland #FestivalFortnight open sessions

As part of our celebration of #Pride2023 we’re delighted to be hosting open taster sessions as part of the wider LEAP Sports Scotland #FestivalFortnight initiative.

The aim of #FestivalFortnight is to encourage LGBTIQ+ people and their friends to find out more about what sport and physical activities are available to them, to try something new and to get more active. These sessions will provide an introduction to the sport and some fundamental American football techniques. All fitness and experience levels are welcome and encouraged to come along.

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.
