EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Kicking activities for training early birds

Players who turn for training early often kick the ball around.

While you might not want to intervene and allow them to have free play, you might want to make this a “thing”.

That is, “if you want to start 15 minutes earlier than the official start time, I will lay on some activities to do. They are voluntary”.

Here are some kicking activities that only need a few players. You can stand back and let them get on with it, while you set up the rest of the session. Or, a co-coach can watch over to give the players some confidence or encouragement.
