Return of Events..
21 June 2022
HDS hosted it's first post -covid event on 21st June.
The 134 entrants on the day came from right across the Highlands, with schools and groups travelling from as far as Skye and Thurso.
Pictured are Lewis Brookes and Natalie Wilson with the Raigmore Shield - this is presented to the runners-up in the senior championships, and this year it was won by the HDS Athletics Team - the other members were Eadan Duncan, Hannah Duncan and Cindie Maclennan, all from Inverness. They are part of the group which trains weekly with Liz McLeod, our athletics coach.
Nansen Bears retained the Cathell Robertson Trophy for the winners of the senior section, as well as the Speedprint 10 event trophy.
In the junior section, Drummond school retained the British Legion Cup.
We are indebted to the officials who gave their time on the day to ensure that the competition could proceed, and to pupils from Millburn Academy who assisted them.
HDS 40th Anniversary..
31 May 2022
Peter Corbett and Isabel Reid both received life membership awards at Highland Disability Sport for the years of service to the organisation at its ceremony last Saturday.
Corbett, who works as a coach, first became involved with HDS in 1993, and is still providing support for his football squad, Highland United.
Some players under his wing went on to compete on the world stage in the Special Olympics Great Britain teams which he managed for the Team Highland Special Olympics Squads.
Reid has been involved with HDS since the early 1980s – first as a parent taking her daughter to events, and latterly as the head coach for indoor and outdoor bowling.
HDS chairwoman Janet Home MBE says the hard work and dedication both of them have given deserves to be recognised and they were worthy recipients of lifetime membership.
She said: “The two of them have worked tirelessly over the years to ensure that their athletes have coaching and support, as well as the opportunities to compete at all levels of their sports.”
