The Beginners Rugby Manual

Here's how to coach your beginner rugby team into great little rugby players

All right so you have been brave enough to take on the role of coaching a beginners rugby team. Firstly congratulations, welcome to the junior coaching ranks. I’m not going to try and hide the fact that this season will either be extremely rewarding as you watch your team grasp the skills and rules needed or it will be a nightmare.

Generally speaking if you are prepared for each training session you will have a fun and rewarding season watching your players growing in confidence and skill. The parents will be your biggest ally if they see their kids having fun and improving.

So where do you start? What do you coach first and what are the players capable of doing?

Don’t be overwhelmed, you aren’t alone, this is generally the first reaction a beginners rugby coach experiences. You might have played rugby before or maybe you are still playing now, but what do you coach kids and where do you start?

The good news is we have made it easy for you. We have broken down the key elements a player under the age of 10 years needs to learn and created 3 manuals that progressively build the young players skill level and understanding of the game.

What are the key areas a beginner needs to learn in the first year of Rugby?

Can you remember the first few days of rugby or the first time you picked up a ball and started to play? Most of us can’t and to add to that the game has change quite a lot, not to mention the coaching techniques.

One of the biggest mistakes a coach makes is to try and cram as much learning into one season of rugby, resulting in a very confused little player. The aim is to try and stagger the learning process and build on the skills learnt. In the first year it important to coach the players the following:

- Onside and off side  
- Passing technique
- Spacial awareness
- Running technique
- Basic defence

What’s the best way to coach kids rugby?

How do you create a learning game?

So how do the manuals work?

What do you get when you buy this manual?

Here are some reasons why Junior Rugby coaches have bought these rugby coaching manuals

* It’s a full season’s worth of coaching in one manual - The manual is 20 weeks of training session split into fortnightly skill game rotations. Each training session last 1 hour, with each skill game lasting 10 minutes. The sessions are easy to coach, keep the kids attention and are fun.
* Value for money - 20 weeks of rugby training sessions at $67, that’s around the $3.35 per week and it’s delivered straight to your computer with a simple click. That’s cheaper than a burger at McDonalds and healthier!
* It’s the perfect coaching resource - The manuals are 20 weeks of training sessions laid out from start to finish. They explain what to do, what to say and most importantly what relevance the game has to skill development.
* Increase your repertoire - The manuals have over 40 games designed to coach rugby to players of all skill levels.
* The rugby manuals are progressive - each manual is designed for a set skill level or age, meaning they provide the skills necessary for that age group or skill level and prepare the players for the next level of learning, which will occur the following year.
* Each rugby coaching manual has clear objectives - each manual is designed around the learning objectives of that age or skill level.
* The training sessions are easy to coach - The sessions are segmented into 10 minute time slots maximising the player concentration and capturing interest over the entire 60 minute session.
* The skills learnt are put to test in a modified game at the end - all the skills are used in the 20 minute game at the end of the training session to maximise retention and to prepare the players for the weekend’s game.
* The players love the rugby skill games - the battle of coaching the rugby skills necessary for improvement are wiped away. The players love the games and are happy to train which means they will learn. Gone are the days of coaching repetitive skill drills and constantly having to bring the players into line or regain their concentration.
* No more searching the internet for rugby skill drills - it’s all here from start to finish, just print it out, set up and off you go. When need be simply refer back to the print out to refresh the memory.
* Save it to your iphone - Take it where ever you go, it’s PDF so you can save it to your phone and read it when need be.
* Easy to follow Diagrams - each game has a diagram that explains how to set up and what to do.
* These games have been tested and proven - We have been running Holiday Clinics for the New South Wales Rugby Union and now the Australian Rugby Union in which the games have been put to test in the most critical arena. All players have loved the programs we run.
