Melrose Youth Rugby gives boys and girls, P1 to Under 18, a great opportunity to enjoy rugby and become the best players they can be. Our teams include: Mini Hornets P1 - 7; Queen Bees - Girls Under 12's; and our Wasps - Girls and Boys S1 to Under 18.
We aim to excel in three areas:
- Recruitment - encouraging more players to enjoy rugby (over 250 youth players);
- Representation - enabling players with ambitions to represent their region or country at age grade rugby to achieve their full potential; and
- Retention - enthusing and preparing players to enjoy adult rugby.
Earlston High School and Melrose Rugby combine to form the Melrose Rugby Community.
The Wasps Way - Getting Better at Getting Better
Increasingly, how athletes think and feel is recognised as having as much, if not more, of an impact on their performance than their physical capabilities and skills. Getting Better at Getting Better is our attempt at capturing positive ways of thinking that will allow our players to get the most out of rugby (and maybe even life!). We’ve been very lucky to collaborate with Gregor Townsend in developing this resource.
Melrose Rugby is proud to be a positive Coaching Scotland Accredited club.
