Scotland U18

The Scotland under-18 season is the culmination of Scottish Rugby's under-16, under-17 and under-18 programmes.

As a transition between the under-17 and under-18 programmes, identified players take part in a national development camp, which has been held for the last few years in Valladolid in Spain, in July. The focus of the camp is to expose the players to a professional environment, providing them with a greater understanding of what is required to perform at the highest level while improving their ability to take responsibility for their own development. On the pitch the emphasis is on individual and position specific skills while off the field players are exposed to a number of high performance cultures including goal setting, video analysis, strength and conditioning, performance nutrition and hydrating strategies.

Following the camp, a series of regional and national selection fixtures, training weekends and home internationals take place throughout the year, culminating in the International Series.
