Regional Academies

Scottish Rugby's regional academies provide the best environment for young Scottish players to develop their skills, disciplines, knowledge and attitude.achieve their full rugby playing potential. It helps them to fulfill their aspirations to become professional rugby players.

Part of the performance player programme, Regional Academy players are those playing in clubs and schoools whose individual programmes are managed by Regional Academy Coaches and supported by the sportscotland Institute of Sport Network.

These players sign a Scottish Rugby academy agreement outlining commitment from both parties - there is no remuneration for any of these players but Scottish Rugby meets the costs of the players' development programme in partnership with sportscotland.
