It's gameday! American football is a sport with a lot of equipment, so here is a quick checklist of things you should be bringing with you.

  • Library card
  • Opaque gumshield
  • Boots
  • Shoulder pads
  • Helmet
  • 5 piece girdle or complete bottom set (blue pants, 2 x hip pads, 2 x thigh pads, 2 x knee pads, 1 x tailbone pad, 1 x belt)
  • Blue socks
  • Lowers
  • Jersey (if you have a personalised one)
  • Gloves (optional but recommended)
  • Base layer/skin
  • Food for halftime, pre-game and post-game; it's a long day
  • Change of clothes (Especially important on away days and for mud bowls)
  • Water/Sports drink (Bring a lot!)
  • A bin bag or similar to keep your kit safe from the British weather (especially on road trips to Wales!)
  • Shower stuff for after the game! (optional)

If you have any questions about any of the above equipment, please don't hesitate to ask!

Please ensure that you are on time. You will be told what time to turn up at some point in the week running up to the game, both at training and on WhatsApp. Be sure to check the Killer Bees groupchat the night before the game to make sure there have been no last minute changes of plan due to weather or for any other reason.

Our home pitch location is STV 1, behind the Astroturf pitches.
