Last Sunday Charleston Academy students took part in an American Football Skills Clinic run by the Highland Wildcats. The event was for school pupils involved in the Highland Community League as well as players from the Wildcats themselves.
It was a 3 hour session held at the Highland Football Academy facility in Dingwall. New and experienced players were given a series of training activities to help introduce them to some key skills of the sport, and help prepare them for the upcoming American football season. Of all the schools that were involved, Charleston had comfortably the largest number of pupils attending with a total of 14. Also Euan Crawford (S6) was present as a senior member of the Wildcats squad.
The pupils taking part are:
Rhys Smith (5L2); Lewis Hilditch (5K2); Finlay Hilditch (2K1); Craig Robertson (5S1); Craig Macintosh (5T1); Sam MacKeddie (Blackhall) (5K1); Fergus Macintyre (5s2); Struan Macdonald (4K1); Anthony Arenas (5S1); Calvin Campbell (5S1); Reece Stewart (4T1); Adam Tuthill (3T1); Jamie Fraser (5K2); Kieran Watts (5K2).
The pre-season training begins with sessions after school in the games hall on Wednesdays (3.30-5pm), and outdoor sessions on Saturday afternoons 12.30-3.30 at Bught Park. First training session is on Wednesday the 13th December.
