At Boroughmuir we introduce rugby at P1/2 level. Mini Rugby is from P3 – P7 and Midi Rugby from S1(U13) – S4(U16).

If you are interested in playing rugby at Boroughmuir (in the Youth Section) then please email Scott Anderson – scott@anderson-home.me.uk to register your interest and we will then contact you with details of upcoming training sessions and how to get involved.

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.
