Developing a 1:1 coaching plan for a junior

Developing a 1:1 coaching plan for a junior

Hi I’m a proud dad who wants to help his 12 year old son develop as an aspiring number 12/13. No experience at all coaching but willing to give it a go. He already trains with his team of course but only once a week. I’d like to supplement that with a plan that he and I can follow 2 to 3 times a week but limited realisticallly to he and I. Passing and tackling and speed and agility I’m guessing are key? Anything on decision making would also be good. Any advice gratefully received!

Hi Carl ,I have created a concept on a rugby ball that is a game but it helps work on individual skills like passing and kicking in a fun way. It also indirectly works on thinking when we catch the ball, reacting quickly and of course perfecting our skills which i believe is very important for any young rugby player. Its a fun way for father and son to do some skill work and hopefully have some friends join in too. My website will be up soon but ill be happy to send you a ball free of charge for you to try out? my email is ...link in profile... if you would like to contact me and give me some more details and i can do the same. you can also check out my face book page although in french lots of photos to see.

Kind regards
