COME LEARN TO PLAY THE COOLEST OLYMPIC SPORT IN TOWN.
Come play Scotland's oldest team sport - Camanachd also known as Shinty. The club is open to male and female participation, no previous experience is required. We have loaner equipment and periodically schedule new player sessions to focus on basic skills and rules of the game.
Camanachd, also known as Shinty, has been played in the Highlands of Scotland for over 2000 years. It's a game of the stick and ball variety, similar to Field Hockey and Irish Hurling. There is also a similarity to Golf, in fact Golf is believed to have evolved from Shinty. Shinty played properly is more aerial than Field Hockey due to the wedge-shaped head of the Shinty Stick (called Caman in Scots Gaelic). Check out our website for photos of camans and the rules of the game as well as our schedule. We have a wide range of ability from beginning level players of various ages to experienced players who have played in Scotland. So far we are mainly in the San Francisco Bay Area, with teams in the South Bay, Peninsula and the East Bay.
