An Early Touches Coach Education Course was held at Lochbroom Leisure Centre in Ullapool. This course on the children’s pathway was well attended with twenty two participants travelling from as far as Gairloch, Inverness and Thurso. This was an adhoc course requested by High Life Highlands Active School Coordinators, looking to educate young sports leaders locally by developing their knowledge and understanding of what’s important when coaching young children. Wester Ross FC was also represented on the day and we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their time and enthusiasm.
