How many tacklers are allowed ...

At under 10s I was under the impression that it is 1v1 tackling. Can someone clarify the laws on this please?

U10s organisation in defence. ...

I have started an under 10s team up, and I would say about 8 from the 13 children I have , did not play rugby until about 6 months ago. Of these players, there seems to be a lot of potential, as we are scoring tries against teams, that very rarely concede tries.the problem I got with them, is that we are very poor at organising our selves in defense when the opposition has the ball, which does result in us conceding quite a few tries. We have some very good tacklers in the team. Can anyone offer some ideas on how I can get them to organise themselves? Thanks . Chris.

I believe it's only when a maul and not 1 on 1 tackle. And what games can you play to demonstrate this?

U10s mini rugby small sided game variations

I did the level 1 and have bought into the philosophy - small sided, conditioned games rather than drills with boys standing in lines and being told where to run. I think it would be good to share ideas of variations that coaches use to focus on specific areas, and how to keep it fresh week in week out.Simply, I award points for good application of the skill we're focusing on. 3 points for good body position in the ruck or driving an opponent back. Only 3 points for a try motivates them to execute the skills.

u10 rugby practice sessions. H...

How does one coach u10rugby? I know this is a very broad question but I am looking for various ideas. At this age they do no have rugby knowledge and spacial awareness that becomes inherent at older age groups. Because of this I am finding it hard to get the maximum out of practice sessions because most of the time you are trying to educate the players as to where to stand and correct techniques etc Which interrupt game play and practice? Any advice ?

England and Wales - U10 rule 6...

Moving up to coach U10 - unclear on what aspect of the rules. Rule 6.o references rule 6m(iii) and states - 'If m)iii. above has taken place, the next arriving player must pass the ball to another player.'6M(iii) allows (after a tackle) a supporting player to pick up the ball and run as long as a ruck has not been formed.So...does this mean that unlike in U9 the 'scrum half' doesn't have to pass the ball from the tackle and can pick and go? This would appear to be the intention of 6m(iii). If so, then what is the purpose and intent of 6.o? Asked using Sportplan Mobile App

Heather Weston Rugby Coach, United States

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a player for my local club and we don't have a coach at the moment so I, as a senior player, am filling that gap. With your help, the team has been able to improve our skills.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
