From 2017/18 the Youth Section is being rebranded as the Boroughmuir Rugby Academy.
The Academy at Boroughmuir Rugby & CSC is an open and friendly rugby club environment. Our vision is to be the heart of a sustainable community sports club driving rugby success, sporting participation and performance across all ages and gender within our community.
You can read about the club's vision for the Academy in its Prospectus (Download it here).
At Boroughmuir we introduce rugby at P1/2 level. Mini Rugby is from P1 – P7 and Midi Rugby from S1 & S2 to U15 & U16, and Colts Rugby at U18s.
For the Micro and Mini rugby teams (P1 to P7) the main training is on a Sunday, 1:30pm to 3:00pm at Meggetland. P5 to P7 also have training on a Tuesday evening.
For the Midis (S1 to U16) training is midweek and games are on a Sunday, normally around midday:

As one of Edinburgh’s leading clubs we have a great clubhouse and excellent facilities where young players can learn the skills needed to play rugby. We have several grass pitches to train on and have access to an astro and 3G pitch when the grass pitches are unplayable due to weather conditions.
The Academy coaching team are all qualified coaches with a variety of coaching qualifications, ranging from Rugby Ready to UKCC Level 1 and 3. Many are former players themselves and are keen to pass on their knowledge of the game in a safe learning environment.
Players from the senior squads regularly come along to training to assist with the sessions and to forge links between the junior and senior players of club.
Players in the older age groups are taught the SRU Rugby Blueprint which prepares them for progression to the National Player Pathway Program.
As a community club we are keen to welcome new players to Meggetland from any school or background, whether they have previous experience or not. For those that haven’t played rugby before we ask that they come along to several training sessions first before committing to membership.
Boroughmuir Rugby commits to the Code of Conduct set out by the SRU.
