Academy Youth Section

Academy Youth Rugby at Boroughmuir Rugby, Edinburgh

In 2017/18 the Youth Section was 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 revsed 2018/19 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.

Player Registration 2019/20

The Registration form for the 2019/20 season will go live shortly.

NB: The Player Registration process for the Academy and payment of annual Membership fees are separate processes.


If you HAVE NOT yet paid the Membership fees for the 2018/19 season, then in the confirmation email you will receive after completion of this form, you will receive details of the steps to follow to complete the Membership Fees process online, using a Unique Player Reference.

This allows the Academy to reconcile payments and Registration.

However, if you HAVE already paid the Membership fees for 2018/19, perhaps as part of a Family Membership, then confirming below will allow us to reconcile this, and you can ignore that section of the email. 


Fixtures for our Micros, Minis, Midis and U18 for 2019/2020 will be detailed below shortly.

Our Club

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.
