Broadford Youth Club has run youth football teams in our small village in the South end of the Isle of Skye for well over a decade now. We have teams from Under 13's up to Under 18's. Every year we compete in our local leagues and tournaments against other teams from Skye & Lochalsh.
This year, we want to send our Under 16's team to go and play in an international tournament in Barcelona, Spain. We'll be undergoing some serious fundraising to try take our squad of fifteen abroad to play in Spain for the first time.
In March this year, members of the squad will be taking part in a 24 hour Sports Marathon with no access to social media or their phones. This sports marathon will consist of the members of the team playing a vast range of sports during a 24 hour time period. sports included so far will be: football;, cricket; basketball; badminton; table tennis; pool; darts; swimming; cycling and fitness sessions.
The tournament in Spain is set for 14-17th October, and we hope to have all the fundraising done well before we jet off.
