Rugby: Pass to Hip Right and Left Side

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a...
Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Good for warm ups and co-ordination, getting used to keeping your body straight on and handling the ball and practicing using your arms to pass the ball rather than the whole body moving.

2 balls, 2 players

Players stand 2 or 3 metres apart facing each other holding a ball on opposite hips (one on right and one on left). Work for 30-40 seconds on pushing the ball and passing from the hips to the other players chest; passes are made at the same time so coordination is key and the pass received must be returned from the same hip it was received.

COACHING POINTS

Feet shoulder width apart with hips and shoulders facing forward towards the other player. Ball at the hips and can be passed as spiral or regularly.

Concentrate on pushing the ball from the hips and not bringing it behind the body line to create power for the follow through. Follow through with hands to where your target is (chest area).

PROGRESSION

For coordination you can add in extra balls but is tricky with various age groups as they will have to catch with one hand etc. Sequences can be made up of fun activities and competitions.
