In this session we continue to build on skills in the breakdown, reinforcing the coaching targets set in session one while moving our coaching closer toward game situations, with a strong focus on decision making at the break-down - helping players to read the game and make the right decisions while on the attack!
To help your players make the right decisions in the melee of the tackle this session sets up different scenarios, forcing your players to scan, communicate and work as a unit to clear the ball and keep possession!
By the end of the session we hope to have taken key steps towards the following skills:
Instil confidence and tackle toughness into your players with this tackling from the front, side and back session! Build their knowledge of the benefits of tackling and how different type of tackle can determine the way the phase plays out.
Get your team the fastest and most agile out there. As the season deepens, we all need to stay on top of our game; make sure every position is covered with this intense drill.
Teach your team to ruck safely, effectively and quickly. By going 'through the gate' you'll avoid giving away penalties and encourage better binding
Create a resolution to develop your coaching confidence by seizing the opportunity to discover new drills, turn ideas into action and seek advice from the coaching community.
Don't find yourself having to regain fitness when you get back to sport after the Christmas break. Keep on top of your exercise plans now and give yourself a head start next year!
Losing is inevitable and it's how we deal with it that will help us to grow as coaches and improve our team's performance.
