Thinking about joining the Killer Bees family?

We have a team of top-class coaches, including Head Coach Pat Snooks, the longest-serving head coach in British American Football, as well as an excellent training and fitness program to get you prepared for gameday. The Killer Bees have been a University club for over 25 years, with many former players going on to play for senior American Football teams across the UK and even the GB American Football team. Experienced players or complete beginners are equally welcomed, with many of our current players joining the team without any prior experience, so don't be put off.

Joining the Killer Bees is incredibly simple: either come meet us down at the Sports Fair on the parade during Freshers Week (27/09/23); message the club on any of our social media platforms; or talk to one of our players. Then purchase the membership here and you're done; you can now play American Football for one of the best University teams in the UK.

We will be holding our Taster Session on Friday 29th September between 1200-1500 on STV Rugby Pitch 1, where all new players are welcome. Just bring shoes suitable for grass, such as moulds or studs, and wear appropriate sports clothing.

To get to the STV Rugby Pitch 1 from campus accommodation: Walk past the STV and carry on until you see the all-weather pitches (Astro) then walk to the far side of the fenced all-weather pitches, turn left and walk down the side of them until you see a grass pitch with a wooden fence around it. A map can be found below. Bees will be on hand to point you in the right direction.

After the Taster Session, we'll be holding our full-contact weekend on 7th-8th October, where you will be fully kitted and get a more in-depth experience. Please look at the "Minicamp" tab for more information.

Come along to one of our training sessions or our mini-camp weekend; all you will need is a gum shield and football/ rugby boots. We'll kit you up with everything else.

American football requires a great deal of kit. However, we provide everything!!!

 This includes:

  • Shoulder Pads
  • Girdles (this includes a belt and pads for hips, thighs, coccyx and knees)
  • Lowers
  • Helmets
  • Playing strip
