EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Quick coach: Sprint ball

CORE SKILLS

  • Acceleration
  • Handling

THE STORY

“Attackers race onto the pass, so they don’t break stride, taking the ball comfortably to sprint to the end.”

SET UP

A 10m by 5m box, and two balls.

HOW TO PLAY

  1. Put two attackers at one end of the box. Put a feeder for each attacker in the middle of the box at the sides, with a ball each.

  1. Start the attackers, who sprint forward, take a pass and race to the end to see who is the winner.
  2. The winner stays racing, the loser swaps with their partner. If a player wins two times in a row, they get a point and become the feeder.

DEVELOPMENTS

  • Make the pass longer.
  • Have the losing team “start” the race. That attacker runs and the other player must react.

NUMBERS

With odd numbers, rotate the players after each go.
