What we're about

The Thundering Thistles are a team of individuals dedicated to improving their weight training for the purpose of personal growth and in order to compete at the twice annual Highland Games in San Diego and elsewhere. New members (or those who just want some people to work out with or just to give the sport a try) are always welcome and we are accommodating of beginners, able to help start from scratch. This group is intended for those interested in training for or learning about the Scottish Highland Games using the Scottish American Athletics Association rules, as well as the culture associated with it. We provide all of the implements and provide training/instruction for free for those willing to self improve.
