New Players Wanted for Primary School Girls Touch Tournament 20 June
Edinburgh Touch in association with Active Schools has launched new touch sessions for girls in P3-4 and P5-7.
Fridays 3-4pm at Broughton High School, 29 E Fettes Ave, EH4 1EG.
2 May to 20 June 2014
21 Aug - 10 Oct 2014
The sessions are coached by Iain Gray and will concentrate on keeping things fun whilst learning fundamental sports skills of teamwork, agility, speed and co-ordination - skills that are transferable to many other sports such as netball, basketball, rugby and football. The rules of touch will be introduced so that players will be able to play small sided modified matches at the end of the 8 week block.
