Scottish Rugby will be delivering a Youth Rugby Summit on 10 May 2019 at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow. The event will run from 9.00am till 3.30pm and is free to attend.
The summit aims to bring different clubs and schools together to learn and share ideas about best practice in youth rugby development.

Scottish Rugby’s Head of Training and Education, Neil Graham commented, “The summit is a great opportunity for like-minded people from the school and club youth game to learn and share good practice. We have some excellent guest speakers at this years’ summit with Ben Ryan kicking off the event.
“We are hoping for over 100 people to attend from throughout the country, in what should be an excellent day all round.”
Alongside a number of speakers, there will be workshops provided by Scottish Rugby staff that will demonstrate some of the key areas of the game.
There is a maximum number of two spaces per school/club for the event.
