Hi everyone.I coach an under 12's rugby union squad.?

Hi everyone. I coach an under 12's rugby union squad. We have a great pack of forwards and some good backs. However, linking the 2 with the 9 and 10 are proving to be difficult. We cannot seem to get across to the number 10 about passing it rather than running it 99 times out of 100. Any suggestions or drills would be most gratefully recieved. Many thanks

I coach under 10's and I am struggling to get the boys?

I coach under 10's and I am struggling to get the boys to commit to the ruck and win quick ball. It either results in slow ball or more often than not lost ball. Can anyone suggest a drill to build up the team's confidence to compete in the ruck.

Position discipline!

I am a coach with an under 10 rugby side. Last season the team found it hard to stay in their positions (acting like a swarm of bees). Can anyone suggest how i can get them to stay in positions, particulary our backs.

Using pads & contact shields - good or bad?

an RFU directive states that coaches should not hold pads/shields for juniors to run into during sessions, or even juniors holding pads for each other!!! I notice a lot of drills utilise pads as this was something we always used when I trained years ago! I personally think they are a good thing (especially since some of the juniors I coach are 'not small'!) BUT wondered what the general thoughts were out there in SportPlan world....

How can I tighten the defence line of my under 10

I had two matches that I lost with my back line being mostly the cause of the tries being scored against us and my team is always eager too tackle the body and not the legs. Is there any drills or recommendations that I can use with my team? (Also the opponents are a lot bigger then my boys).

Hi, at the moment having trouble with our junior team getting to tackle correctly.....we've trained well and brought various drills to tackle prperly but come game day the kids are going too high and grabbing jerseys.....only one of two have a great technique!! So any idea for teaching better tackle technique for 10 & 11 year olds? Thanks and look forward to you're response. Asked using Sportplan Mobile App

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 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.

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.
