BATs S1

Welcome to BATs S1. We welcome players of all standards, shapes and sizes and newcomers are especially welcome.

AIMS

The aims of the first part of the season are:

  • To build skill levels and game knowledge for each player.
  • To build experience in playing matches (versus the mini tournaments) against teams of different styles and skill levels.
  • To have a lot of fun!

TRAINING

Training for S1s takes place on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Matches are played on Sunday mornings.The S1s are coached by Callum Black, Malcy McVie and Sandy Nairn.

  • Wednesday training: Raeburn Place, 18.30-19.30, every week.
  • Sunday training: Raeburn Place, 11.00-12.15 (see dates below).
  • Sunday matches: home fixtures take place at Raeburn Place at 11.00 unless otherwise specified.

We do not expect every player to make every session given other commitments etc so please do not worry if you cannot make a session. However, please try to let us know if you are not going to be at a session.

Kit: playing tops will be provided for games and washed by the Club afterwards. Players should wear their school or own shorts and socks. Gum shields must be worn.

The key points of law and safety to note are:

  • 13-a-side (15-a-side allowed if both teams agree)
  • 6 in the scrum (8 if agreed by both teams)
  • No pushing in the scrum
  • Contested scrum for hooking
  • Lineouts
  • Each half starts with a kick off and a try score leads to a tap and pass re-start
