Scrum School

To help improve the standard of front row play across Scotland, Scottish Rugby has launched a new programme called Scrum School.

Consisting of a series of practical workshops, online resources, and Skills Camps, Scrum School will set out to break perceptions and provide both coaches and players with the knowledge, skills and understanding required to excel when it comes to scrum time!

Scrums School Timeline

Regional Workshops

The programme will kick off with a series of practical workshops for coaches. These will provide coaches with a great opportunity to break down the core movements and skills to effectively scrummage and deliver various components to individuals, units, and wider squads, as part of our training sessions.

As per the Scottish Rugby Blueprint, Scrum School will work towards creating amazing learning environments for players with the appropriate level of challenge and support to enable players to be more technically and tactically adaptable.

Regional Skills Camps 

Whether it be starting the sport from scratch, or transitioning from a different position, the ‘Scrum School Skills Camps’ will provide a step-by-step approach to building confidence in the scrum, while also offering a range of practical tips and tricks for coaches and players alike. There will be three camps per Scottish Rugby region and, if possible, coaches/players are encouraged to attend all.
