Rugby: Passing Left and Right From Feed

What a fantastic tool. I've found a few drills that are unfamiliar,...
Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

This is to practice handling and passing the ball to a direct target. It is good for awareness and communication between the three support players.

2 balls, 3 support players, 1 passer.

The support players set up a triangle on your given dimensions. The person at the top of the triangle is the feeder for the passer, who will stand one metre from the feeder on the inside of the triangle. The feeder starts with a ball as well as the passer; once the first pass is made on the coaches call the passer must look to receive the next ball from the feeder to pass to the next support player. As soon as the support players receive a pass they should return it to the feeder. Each passer should work for about one minute and then rotate with one of the support players.

COACHING POINTS

Passer should receive the ball in front of their chest. Adjust feet and body to make a pass deep behind them.

Concentrate on hand position once the ball has left the passers hands. Aim for a window and make sure on the finishing position that you can see the window through your hands.

Communication between support players is key to not disturb the sequence. Passer should be quick and aware for the next ball will be deployed quickly from the feeder.

Continuous Passing Square 2

Set up a square of cones, and get the players to form equal lines behind each cone. The ball starts in the hands of a player behind cone 1, who runs (black running line) towards cone 2, passes the ball to the player behind cone 2 who passes the ball back to the first player. The first player then runs towards cone 3 and passes the ball to the player standing behind cone 3. The player who passed the ball from behind cone 2 runs (blue running line) following the run of the first player and receives a pass from the player behind cone 3 before running towards cone 4 and passing the ball to the player behind cone 4. The player who passed the ball from behind cone 3 runs (yellow running line) following the run of the second player and receives a pass from the player behind cone 4 before running towards cone 1 and passing the ball to the player behind cone 1. The player who passed the ball from behind cone 4 runs (red running line) following the run and receives a pass from the player behind cone 1 before running towards cone 2 and passing the ball to the player behind cone 2. The player who passed the ball from behind cone 1 runs (black running line) following the run and receives a pass from the player behind cone 2 before running towards cone 3 and passing the ball to the player behind cone 3, and the drill continues. Change the direction which the ball is going. Progressions: Get the players to change direction on your command (shout/whistle etc) Multiple balls As a group must complete 10 successful passes before the session can move on, every time a ball is dropped the whole group does an exercise (e.g. 10 press ups).
