EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Get minds and bodies ready for training

Kick off training with engaging warm up activities that energise your players and get their minds and bodies ready for the session ahead.

Here’s a mix of large and small group ideas for you to try out.

First, look at our guide on 7 great ways to warm up, which also provides links to handling and contact warm ups.

Warm ups are also a good time to develop athletic prowess in areas that are often ignored. So, Add jumping to your warms ups, sometimes as part of a running circuit or just before or after a game activity.

If your session is going to be quite physical, a couple of old-school PE exercises will often do the trick. In Warm up drills to prepare for full contact rugby, check out the outcomes so the players do them accurately. Also score points for the style!

Finally, one of my favourites for the warm up, the Touch cone warm up drill takes moments to set up and is very competitive. There are plenty of great outcomes, plus you can empower the players to make their own additional rules.
