Borders College is working with Scottish Rugby to provide a coherent Rugby programme that gives recognition and structure to players developing their Rugby Skills and Physical Fitness. Successful students will achieve SQA units in Rugby, Circuits, and Resistance training at SCQF levels 4 or 5. The programme is delivered, part-time in local communities, via Rugby Leaders based in selected Clubs and Schools. Players will attend regular sessions (3 times per week) and record progress, using worksheets and a training diary.
