In February the Junior Highland Wildcats will be starting their 2014 pre-season training on Sunday the 9th. They’ll be preparing to take part in the new British American Football Association 8 on 8 league starting in mid-April.
The Youth Wildcats will be practicing on Saturdays from 12:30pm – 3:30pm and this will begin the week after the Highland Bowl (the championship for the Highland Academy Community League). The practices will take place at The Blitz with the first hour usually involving meetings and video analysis followed by a two hour practice on the field. As these practices will not commence until March, and with the season due to kick off in mid-April, there will be a Spring Training Camp from 7 – 9 April to ensure the players moving up from the HACL are ready for competition in the National Leagues as part of the Wildcats. There will be two practices a day with video analysis sessions too. Each day of the camp will be from 10:30am – 4:00pm.
