For Coaches

All our youth rugby coaches will be subject to vetting by Disclosure Scotland under the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme. It is our policy that no one coaches at the Accies’ Minis without their PVG

We pride ourselves in the investment we put into coach education, so we ensure that the environments in which we operate have player welfare at their centre. All coaches and match officials are required to complete
the RugbyRight course that goes through: concussion; player welfare; safe coaching practices; and law updates.


We also encourage our coaches to complete the Coaching Children Rugby Union (UKCC Level 1) Course, which qualifies them to coach and referee (game coaching) children in rugby union. This will enable coaches to develop core skills and core values in young players in an active, purposeful, enjoyable and safe environment
