Dave Cockburn returns home
Boroughmuir Rugby and Community Sports Club is pleased to announce Dave Cockburn as our Director of Coaching. Dave will oversee coaching at Boroughmuir.
Dave’s remit is to create a continually improving coaching environment and approach that allows us to nurture, develop and grow our own playing and coaching talent at Boroughmuir; an approach that maintains a balance between elite and inclusiveness and one that encompasses the whole club, from mini rugby right through to Super 6.
Dave has a wealth of rugby experience and is no stranger to Meggetland. Before moving into coaching, Dave had a fabulous 25 year playing career at Boroughmuir which included representative honours for Edinburgh and Scotland B. Dave’s distinguished coaching career includes winning the Scottish club championship (with Watsonians), the Scottish cup (with Glasgow Hawks), as well being awarded with Scottish club coach of the year in 2010. He has also coached age grade national rugby teams.
Dave is a UKCC level 3 coach, an off-course assessor for UKCC level 3 as well as a UKCC coach educator, a world rugby coach educator and coach mentor at the SRU. He has been involved with Penguins International RFC Academy coaching in Hong Kong, Rwanda, The Philippines, Sweden, Malaysia and India.
It’s great to have Dave back home at Meggetland. Please give him a warm welcome.
