STAGE 1 MINI RUGBY COACHING RESOURCES
As part of the commitment to support and develop coaches at all levels of the game, Leinster Rugby and the IRFU are delighted to present the first of our online coaching video resources. These resources are intended to initially support the development of Stage 1 coaches and players, supplementing the body of information provided on the IRFU Mini Rugby Coaching Courses.
Stage 1 rugby coaching sessions revolve around players playing the game. It is intended that this simple guide will help coaches recognise the movement of players in general play through the development of two identifiable groups - the 'Players on the ball' and the 'Players in the space'. By helping coaches of Stage 1 rugby to understand this movement of players they will be better able to develop players' game-sense.
The videos reflect the reality of Stage 1 rugby, asking the coach - Can you see? specific skill components. Where the players' capacities to play the game are inhibited by a lack of skills, the coach may set about developing these through reduced activities.
