Every year FR2R has met it targets and expectations but the objective is not to stand still but to raise the crossbar continuously and show that Forrester RFC is a genuine community club who have a real interest in our youth and their development.
It is not the intention of FR2R that we produce only international or top class players, instead, we want youth to be involved in sport, not only as players but as administrators, youth leaders or whatever capacity they can assist to help others. We have encouraged a number to obtain Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs), attend youth leadership courses, several have obtained bursaries at a fee paying school, others have now matured into the adult ranks and playing for the senior Forrester RFC teams. Others have been selected for specialist training with different Edinburgh age groups. Lunch time and after school clubs are a regular feature, along with school camps, working in partnership with the police and other local organisations to provide facilities for sport and recreation in areas that are considered to be trouble spots. Our CDO (Gavin Sisson) has come through both the Forrester RFC and FR2R system.
