do you want to play for the bury saints?

The Saints aim to become a hub for American Football in Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding area.  We aspire to be a club that the local community can get behind and support.


Your journey starts on the training ground.  Practice takes place at least once a week and is an ideal opportunity for new players, or ‘Rookies’ to try the sport for the first time, or for more experienced players to see what the organisation has to offer in terms of development.  To get on the field faster, fill out our medical disclaimer online here


We're always on the look out for new talent, but if playing isn't for you, there's lots of other ways to get involved.  Click to find out more about coaching, supporting or volunteering with the Saints.


To play for the Bury Saints you must be 18 or older but we are in the process of  developing youth flag football teams so that children of all ages can enjoy the sport on their way to becoming the Saints stars of the future.  If you're under 18 and want to play American Football, get in touch here.
