Biggar RFC - Development Overview

Biggar RFC is a thriving club which caters for players from Primary 1 through to senior. We currently boast teams at P1/2, P3, P4, P5, P6, P7, S1, S2, U15, U16 and U18 as well as a girls U15’s team, 2 senior teams and a social / over 35’s team.


I am Calum Taylor, Club and Community Development Officer for Biggar Rugby Football Club. Since the 2008/09 season the club has employed a full time development officer to help maintain the status of the Clydesdale region’s premier sports club.


The development programme can be loosely split into two key areas: club programme and community programme.


Club Programme:


The club aspect of development officer role essentially revolves around the following question:

In the time between a youngster joining the club to when they graduate through to senior rugby - how can we help them achieve their own absolute potential as rugby players, as teammates and as club members?


Biggar Rugby Club boasts 14 competitive teams from Primary 3 through to 1st XV as well as non-competitive weekly sessions for P1’s and 2’s. With teams at every age group from P3 through to U18, we currently have approximately 45 volunteer coaches across all youth age groups. I work very closely with these coaches, trying to ensure every child gets the best rugby experience possible through educating coaches in the latest coaching techniques and tactical and technical knowledge.


The safety of participants is always at the absolute forefront of our minds. Therefore, every coach is required to go through an annual ‘Are You Ready to Play Rugby?’ course. This is a yearly update which leads our volunteers through the latest safe coaching ideas and techniques.



Community Programme:


The community programme primarily revolves around the schools programme. I run rugby taster sessions in both Biggar and Lanark cluster primary schools as well as curricular and extra-curricular activities in Biggar High School and Lanark Grammar School. If you have a child who goes to a Biggar or Lanark cluster primary school it’s highly likely I will have delivered rugby sessions to them and their classmates.


Biggar RFC are also proud members of the Biggar Community Sports Hub, and work with other sporting teams in the area to give youngsters the maximum sporting opportunities possible.



For questions regarding rugby development in your area or any other enquiries regarding the club in general please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact details below.



Yours in Rugby,
