No. We are an inclusive team and that includes being inclusive of all levels of rugby ability. We would welcome new players who have zero experience of playing rugby through to those that already play at a high level.

The only requirements for training is a pair of suitable footwear (preferably rugby or football boots), suitable clothing for the weather conditions and plenty of water to keep hydrated during sessions.

We currently have two venues – Wednesday training takes place at Woodside Sports Complex on Station Road in Aberdeen. Sunday Training takes place at Hazlehead Park Playing Fields in Aberdeen. Both have transport links from the city centre.

We train twice a week (Wednesday evenings & Sunday mornings). We don’t have a minimum attendance requirement but those who train more regularly will better develop as a player and find themselves in a better position when it comes to selection for fixtures.

For us being inclusive means breaking down some barriers that exist for some people who ordinarily might not get involved in rugby for whatever that reason might be.

Whilst our players are predominantly LGBT+ we also have straight players who are just as much part of the team. Sexual orientation is not a barrier – we welcome anyone regardless of how they might identify.

No. All players must be over the age of 18 when they join, however we don’t have an upper limit. As long as you’re physically able to play then you’re welcome to join us.

Yes. All new players can come along to 4 FREE training sessions before you have to commit to joining as a member of the club.
