This one is from a school in England, not Scotland, but it gives you an idea of the quality of sessions:
<< I would like to wholeheartedly thank Paul and his colleagues for the VX taster session he led in Huntington School, York. I cannot remember seeing students enjoy a taster session as much as they did with Paul and his team. Every time I passed through the sports hall I saw students running around, working hard and HAVING FUN. We have already had an influx of students interested in taking up the sport, outside of school. I look forward to working more with this brilliant new sport and the dedicated individuals who are working so hard to develop it!
