any suggestions on getting u 13s to communicate

Dan

Run some games where, if you want the ball passed to you, you have to call for it. Its great fun and really gets players communicating together.

You could also try to get your team to select leaders in key positions and they become "Defence Captain" etc and this tends to encourage the key players to take responsibility for organising different parts of the games.

Good luck

Dan you could play a game of constant attack. rugby. where the defence only pasively stop the attack. you as coach stand behind the defence facing the attack and you hold up either your left or right arm to show the side they should attack. they will have to talk to each other and use their vision. you can condition it by having sometimes only certain players calling the situation. hope this helps Tony

thank's Simon and Tony ,will try both this weekend and let ye know. Dan

Dan, A game I use that works quite well is to remove the ball from the game and to get the players to "commentate" on what they are doing. 9 says to 10 "passing you quick flat ball", 10 says to 12 "passing the ball to you", whilst 12 says to 10 "pass me the ball", etc At this age, they sometimes struggle to do things that they have to think about - so if you take the ball out of the equation they only have to concentrate on talking. Try this for 5 minutes and then re-introduce the ball. It will take a couple of sessions, but you shouldh begin to see the improvement. Good Luck Stephe
