I am trying to put together a season long coaching?

I am trying to put together a season long coaching schedule for under 13s and under 14s covering all the aspects of the game

It is a very good idea to plan ahead. I can offer this pre season training plan I put together a few years ago which outlines what needed to be practised in the off season and you may find it helpful:

Core skills to be covered:

Individual Skills

  • Handling Contact and ball retention
  • Support/offloading in a tackle
  • Tackling

Unit Skills Scrum:

  • Organisation,
  • Calling structure,
  • Engagement sequence
  • Binding,
  • feet position, etc. etc

Lineout:

  • Basic calling structure,
  • 2 offensive options
  • 1 defensive option 
  • Organise how to contest the opposition ball

Ruck:

  • Clearing players at the ruck/tackle
  • Setting up ruck ball

Maul:

  • Organise a maul, mainly from a lineout 
  • Defending a maul

Back Row moves:

  • 3 defensive
  • 3 offensive

Kick off receptions/options

  • Shallow 22

Deep Strike moves:

  • No more than 5 effective strike moves by first game

Kicking options:

  • Organise a defensive kicking option either from 1st or 2nd phase

I hope this helps and perhaps other coaches may have some ideas to offer?
