Glasgow Touch 2011

Glasgow Touch would like to invite you to receive FREE coaching at sessions led by some of Scotland's international touch players! They will take place at Glasgow Green and commence on Thursday 14th April from 6.30-8.30pm and will run for 4 consecutive Thursdays. Touch is a mixed sport and therefore the training is for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes.

The aim of the sessions is to provide both beginners and improvers with structured training ahead of the Glasgow Touch league which runs from May to July. We will be concentrating on teaching you the basic Touch skills and rules that will give you a solid foundation from which to progress.

With the World Cup taking place in Edinburgh this June, Touch is the most exciting sport to get involved in at the moment. This is your chance to sample it for yourself!
