The Blueprint is the playing and coaching philosophy for Scottish Rugby, aiming to improve the standard of rugby at all levels of the game. The Blueprint has evolved from the original (launched in 2016), to expand beyond the technical/tactical focus of the game.

Developed by Scottish Rugby in conjunction with coaches from the club and school game, the Blueprint’s overriding message is ‘Change Our Game’.

In order for Scottish Rugby to compete and win on the international stage, the game in Scotland needs to further develop and think differently.

The intention of the Blueprint is to help coaches to create amazing learning environments with the appropriate level of challenge and support to enable players to be more tactically adaptable.
