The Youth Section 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.
At Boroughmuir we introduce rugby at P1/2 level. Mini Rugby is from P3 – P7 and Midi Rugby from S1(U13) – S4(U16).
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 Youth Section coaching team are all qualified coaches with a variety of coaching qualifications, ranging from Rugby Ready to UKCC Level 1 and 2. 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 key national themes 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.
Training for the P1/2 and Minis is held on Sundays at Meggetland from 1.30 – 3.00pm. P4, P5, P6 & P7's also train on Fridays 6.00 - 7.00pm
The S1s and S3s train on Wednesday nights from 7.00 – 8.30pm
The S2s and S4s train on a Tuesday and Thursday night from 8.00 – 9.00pm
The Minis regularly play in tournaments throughout the season. These are generally played on a Sunday morning / early afternoon.
The S1 and S2s play friendlies on Sunday afternoons from 1.00pm, whilst the S3s and S4s play in a leagues, also on Sundays from 11.00am
All players should have a gum shield to play rugby as well as appropriate warm clothing in the colder months. There is a well stocked shop / online shop in the clubhouse where these items can be bought.
