Full Description

Coaching Rugby DVD contains 49 live action training sessions covering the core skills every player needs. Each session clearly demonstrates coaching theory in practice, many introducing new ways to coach the basics.

Each session show you how to set up and structure the session, and provides key instructions to call out to encourage players.

Covering every stage of basic skills development, the DVD provides the tools to create players that are confident and technically proficient. For instance, if your players are new to tackling or need a refresher course, the DVD has the coaching techniques to help them master simple tackling, before progressing on to front on and rear tackling.

And if your players need to perfect their handling skills, the DVD offers a wealth of expertise, covering the basics of passing and catching, through to offloading in contact.

In fact, the DVD presents all the fundamentals of tackling, handling, footwork, the ruck, maul, scrum and lineout.

You can then use the match tactics sessions to practise these skills in competitive games, to prepare your players for the next game.
