Heather, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Players start with the ball, a few steps back from the crossbar.

They must attempt to get the lift from the tight angle and flight the ball over the crossbar.

After each success they can move a meter closer to the crossbar and repeat.

On each occasion the ball is to land within the target zone as specified by the coach.

Start the target zone quite large and then reduce it in size as the kicker grows more confident.

COACHING POINTS

Player develops football confidence knowing where and how to make contact with the ball to achieve a desired outcome.

This is vital for the player who will eventually be required to have the drop goal option in their repertoire, also for variations on the 22 drop outs.
