Walking football is back!

Walking Football is back at the Highland Football Academy, Dingwall. Walking Football, which targets men over 50 who still want to play football at a pace that will suit their fitness and mobility levels, will be held every Monday from 6-7pm at the indoor 3G at the HFA.

New players are always welcome so get yourself along to sample this great version of the beautiful game, but at a slower tempo…


Coaching Pathway
The 12-hour Coaching in the Game
certificate course was held at the Highland Football Academy, Dingwall where the twenty-plus participants had the opportunity to gain knowledge and the understanding required to help players appreciate concepts such as width, depth and support within the small-sided game. The course was practical and prospective coaches were required to demonstrate the ability to coach basic strategies to players.

The standard of delivery on the course was excellent and we took the opportunity to wish everyone all the very best in their coaching back at their respective clubs.

This weekend coming the Community and Youth department are delighted to welcome Premier Coaching Club based in Thurso and MacDiarmid Primary School Football team from Skye, who are both taking part in our Match Day Experience Programme.
