More Selection Success for Scottish Juniors
Following the British Championships, Northern Championships and the JK, Scottish Juniors across a range of ages have been selected for international competition and a range of training camps. The performance of all the Scottish juniors at these events was fantastic with some very tough competition from juniors from the rest of the UK and Europe. It was great to see the breadth of Scottish junior talent as well as the fun and friendship they gain from the sport.
