Rugby Netball

Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Known by many names, I've called it Rugby Netball here, the concept is this:

Players split into two teams in the Game Area. 

Each side of the square is a try line indicated by cone colours. 

Players must pass the ball to teammates until they can score a try at the correct colour try line. 

Players must not move with the ball

COACHING POINTS

Coaches allow play then call out a colour. The team in posession must then get their players in position to score a try on or beyond that try line. 

Coaches should:

  • Penalise movement by ball carrier
  • Encourage teammates to find space and call for the ball
  • Call out coloured try lines

Variations:

  • Introduce variations on passing e.g. nothing above head height / over arm throws only
  • Introduce kicks
  • Introduce restricted movements e.g. attackers must kneel when they have the ball. 
  • Enlarge playing area to suit numbers
  • Change the ball size/shape e.g. tennis ball

Coaches Could also introduce additional points scored for players demonstrating Principles of Play e.g.

  • Finding Space (GO FOWARD) 
  • Shouting for the ball (SUPPORT) 
  • Ten Passes (CONTINUITY) 
  • Intercepting (CONTEST POSESSION) 
  • Marking the players (CONTEST POSESSION) 

Development

  • Develop this game into only end to end  / End ball type game then...
  • Develop further into full game
