game appropriate warm up

i have been told i need to make my warm ups more rugby specific and game appropriate, what are some small drills i can do at the end of the warm up that don't involve too much contact but will get players ready for a training session or match

 

Hi Hannah

It depends on what age you are coaching and also the skill level. 

I am not sure what you currently do but try to involve a rugby ball rather than just running and stretching. Things like bulldog can be incorporated or touch rugby netball. In addition if they are doing shuttles then give them a ball and make them score at each end. Rugby related stretches can come from having players back to back and rotating to hand the ball around waist, over shoulders, over head and through legs etc. 

The resources on the warm up section on this site are good to give ideas. 

I hope this helps

Adam
