Camanachd Leòdhais are delighted to announce the commencement of Youth Coaching on Saturdays at Stornoway Primary between 10am and 12noon. Training will be suitable for children from Primary 4 to Secondary 4.
Players should bring boots and shinguard but helmets and sticks will provided if you don’t have them. There will be a warm welcome for all those pupils who play at the Nicolson Institute and Stornoway Primary already as well as any pupils of other schools, Shawbost, Lional, Back, Sir E Scott, Laxdale who have experience of shinty.
The club is also delighted to welcome back Boyd Mackenzie in a youth coaching capacity. Boyd was instrumental in developing several of the players who now make up the first team squad and in maintaining shinty in Lewis until he took a well-earned sabbatical from the sport.
He will be assisted by John Nally and any first team players who may be available. The club will be arranging fixtures for the youths and hopefully seeing these players form the back bone of the squad in a few years time.
Training will run through the season, so even when there are Senior Away Games training will be on. Please check the twitter feed @lewiscamanachd for any updates.
