On Sundays, our P1-P3 group do an hours training, with the P4-S2 groups doing an extra half hour.

Mar-Sept (approx): all sessions are held outdoors at our base in Barrachnie Park.

Oct-Feb (approx): Sunday sessions continue at Barrachnie Park, while

Tuesday evening sessions move indoors to Barlanark Community Centre (G33 4RZ).

For these indoor sessions the timings are extended and staggered to make best use of the hall::

P4-P6, and P7-S2, 6:30-7:30pm

Micro
P1 to P3

Coach Jim

For our youngest players, these non-contact sessions focus on letting the children have fun and learn about teamwork and the basics of rugby.

 

A mixture of ball handling, mini drills and playground games, it introduces our youngsters to rugby's core skills, but most importantly gets them moving and enjoying themselves.

Mini / Midi
P4 to P6

Coach Brendan

For our older primary school children, we continue the skills training started in Micros, developing pass technique and the basics of tackling.

Our coaches use tackle bags to safely introduce this element, while teaching the players how to tackle opponents in their first contact training. Mini games and drills keep the players moving too.

Youth
P7, S1 & S2

Coach Malky

S1 and S2 secondary school age players move up to youth training, and work towards developing their overall game.

At this stage the players can work on scrum and lineout skills, as well as continuing to develop tackling and kicking technique under the guidance of the coaches. 

All of our coaches carry PVG certification and the club ensures that they progress through the various stages of coach education facilitated by the SRU, as well as our own coach development programme operated within the club.
