Sunday 31st January saw Carrick Academy host the second Ayrshire Cluster Training of the season. The event, held indoors due to the weather, was attended by girls from Cumnock RFC and Carrick Academy and used a variety of game-based activity to help the players improve key skills and work together in preparation for the Brewin Dolphin Scottish Girls' Cup West Qualifier being held at Cartha Queens Park RFC on Sunday 21st February, where teams from Argyll down to Dumfries and Galloway will come together to compete for a place in the Quarter Finals.
The next Ayrshire Cluster Training will be held on Sunday 28th February. Hopefully, the weather will stay clear and the event will be able to go ahead outdoors, allowing the players to focus on building their confidence in contact, helping the squad prepare for the Brewin Dolphin Scottish Girls' Cup Quarter Finals.
