The annual First Shinty Festival took place at the Lewis Sports Centre on Wednesday 16 January and the club was on hand to help out!

A fantastic turnout saw 63 kids from Sgoil Lionail Parent Council, Laxdale Primary School, Shawbost School and Stornoway Primary take part in a morning of fun and games.

Everyone enjoyed themselves as the youngsters developed their skills and played several games.

A huge thank you to everyone that helped make the event possible, between the organisers, the coaches and of course the schools. Hopefully we are looking at the future of Camanachd Leòdhais!

A reminder that we do have shinty training available at all junior levels. For those in primary, there is training on every Saturday at Stornoway Primary during the school term from 1-2PM for only £2. The children are split into two sessions depending on age and ability so that those newer to the sport can learn from the very start.

For secondary pupils, there is training available at The Nicolson Institute on Fridays at 2pm.
