Deaf pupils at Dalziel are given the opportunity to participate in an annual Deaf Football Tournament and take part in weekly training sessions in preparation for this. The pupils also compete in Disability Scotland’s Athletics Championships.
In February our pupils were given the opportunity to take part in a Football training camp run by the SFA. The event took place in Toryglen Regional Football Centre and included deaf pupils from all over Scotland. Our pupils were able to hone their skills and we even had some of our novice footballers picking up tips from the trained professionals.

Deaf Football Festival
On Friday 9 June two teams from Dalziel’s HID Department took part in the West of Scotland Deaf Children’s Society’s Annual Football Tournament. The Dalziel Senior team were determined to retain the trophy which they won last year. They put in a brave performance and came second. The Junior Team also performed well, finishing a very respectable fifth. Whilst the weather was not as good as we would have hoped, all pupils were fully involved and made the event a huge success.
