ACE Academy

Aim: to identify and prepare players with potential to progress their rugby to the highest level.

The ACE Academy has now been running for three seasons, successfully nurturing young players with potential. Entry is by invitation only and is restricted to players who have been involved in Scottish Rugby's age grade programmes.

The programme focuses on skills development and strength & conditioning, as you would expect, but also develops young people's organisational skills and sense of responsibility. Players commit to a rugby programme that they must learn to fit around school or college work, or work commitments. They learn to manage their time and prioritise activities.

ACE Academy players have represented Edinburgh and Scotland at U16, U18 and U20.
