History and Tradition

Cardinal Highland Athletic Club

Welcome to the website for the Cardinal Highland Athletic Club.   The events of Scottish Heavy Athletics are what we do, and throwing the stone, heaving the hammer, hurling the weights and tossing the caber are our passion.  The  CHAC  accepts members from both Stanford-affiliates and the surrounding community.  Our members  range from three-time world champions to complete beginners.   We currently meet for practice at the Sand Hill Intramural  Fields  on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 5:30 to about 7:30.  The Club provides the necessary throwing gear.  To learn more, check out the "schedule" page.

If interested in participating, contact Alan Hebert at  or Bethany Owen at

The CHAC  is proud to be the Host Club for the East Bay Scottish Associations Tartan Day Highland Games.
