Heriot’s Rugby Club have a thriving youth section that consist of several young rugby teams playing at Goldenacre.

The Junior Section provides qualified coaching for boys and girls from P1 upwards, beginners are welcome at any age level and we have a wide mix of players from many Edinburgh schools. It’s a great fun activity for the children, with training sessions and games held on Sunday afternoons throughout the season.

We’d love you to come along and experience one of Scotland’s most successful clubs whether you’ve played regularly or are looking to take up rugby.



The starting point for the Heriots Rugby journey, we welcome everyone from Primary 1 to 7, boys and girls, from any school.

Players can join any year group, whether they have played the game before or not.

We have SRU certified coaches who can help children learn the basics or hone the skills they already have.

We train on Sundays at Goldenacre between 1.30 and 3pm and there are regular fixtures, tournaments and social events, culminating in the annual P7 Dublin Tour, always a fantastic event for the young and not so young.


Our Youth Section (S1-S6) formed in 2018 as a development from Heriots  and Stew Mel Mini Rugby Teams, however we invite new players from any club or school .

We have a strategic player development pathway with a season plan based around top quality fixtures, specialist skills sessions, performance workshops and tours.
