Under 8's first session on 'contact' %3A the plan is to get them on the ground with the ball, learning contact with the ground before the player%3A
can anyone suggest some ground based drills with the ball, (eg forward roll) to get them going? Thanks
Marc, once you've showed them the contact with ground learing points, i would suggest all range of practices like forward rolls, leopard crawls, backward rolls, wheelbarrow races, dwarf bulldog etc. purely to build confidence
Hi Marc, another thing you could do is to seperate the kids into two equal teams.Get them to go down onto their knees and play a game of bulldogs with one team having the ball. The other team must try to get the ball back off the team with the ball but they must only do this by tackling around the waist and no where else. the kids do not have far to go down and this encourages proper tackling later on.
