Thanks to everyone who entered our Rugby Coaching Competition!
The winner of a coaching session was Chris Sweetapple who is an amateur coach Saracens Amateur RFC. Chris will win a coaching session with me, Dan Cottrell, as well as £100 Amazon voucher and a bundle of our rugby coaching manuals.
I simply loved this plan for a session.
It mixes quick messages with detail on how to coach and what to coach.
The session itself is very much game-led, so the players will be making decisions as they aim to develop their skills.
And it’s a session you could run with weaker and stronger players. In Chris’s case, he has a development team.
Look out for a full write up in Rugby Coach Weekly, and also for details of my coaching session with Chris!
And congratulations to our runners-up Chris Andrew and Robert Ayers.
