what active coaching games can i use to coach the miss pass?

what active coaching games can i use to coach the ,iss pass to under 10's at a local rugby club

I would use small sided games (3 v 2) and encourage the players to make a miss pass by awarding 5 points for a try but 2 points every time they do a miss pass. If you ensure a wide grid is used to play the games in then the players should quickly see the opportunities to miss out the middle player.

You may need to let them try this small sided game first and then bring them in to see a miss pass demonstration by some players you have quietly coached already. Then they can go back into their 3 v 2 games and achieve success. I would suggest you keep swapping the defenders after a try has been scored.

I hope this helps.

Miss pass game


Description:
  • Ball Carrier runs towards the left shoulder of first defender
  • Option runner in the middle runs towards the gap between the two defenders
  • The ball receiver runs straight and is deep enough to recieve the pass

Coaching Points:
  • The middle runner should call loudly for the ball to draw the defender away from where the pass is going
  • Swap the defenders after 2/3 goes or after each try is scored
