American Football


Welcome to American Football

The Leeds Gryphons American Football team has a proud tradition of producing exceptional players, some of whom have gone on to play for the Great Britain Lions as well as professionally in Europe. The club will be playing in The Division 1 North Conference for the 2023/24 season.

The society is mixed and usually consists of around 60 members and has around 40 active players. Each year, the club has 10 or so volunteer coaches, who are experienced in the game to improve your skills and teach you the ins and outs of American Football.

We also social as hard as we train and play! We offer a range of experiences including non-drinking events. Most Wednesdays we have a team social, often collaborating with other sports societies. Thanksgiving, The Superbowl and our annual Tour are all huge events in our busy social calendar allowing you to play a high level of sport whilst, also experiencing the vast social opportunities Leeds has to offer with our Gryphons Family.

No experience is needed to join as most people have never played before university. Our players come from a variety of sporting and non-sporting backgrounds – all are welcome!
