The Skills Clinic is getting closer! Sunday, 8 December will see potential players from the Junior Highland Wildcats and players from the Highland Academy Community League teams working out at the Highland Football Academy in Dingwall.
The event kicks off at 1pm on the indoor astroturf field with tackling skills. Offensive Lineman, Wide Receivers and Quarterbacks will then be taken through individual drills. Players will then get the opportunity to split into Defensive Backs and Defensive Linemen groups to work on skills for those specific positions.
The Skills Clinic will finish with a bit of competition in the form of one on ones where the players will get a chance to show what they’ve learnt as they go head to head against each other. The event raps up at 4pm.
There is no sign up process for this event. You just have to go to the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/394596540671106/ and click “going”.
