Coaching Children

Introducing young children to rugby and developing their skills can be a very satisfying experience for any coach, teacher, and parent. Creating the right learning environment is crucial to ensure that every child is given the best opportunity to reach their fullest potential in a safe and secure environment. Young players are the future guardians of the game and will be the next generation of players, fans, officials, and volunteers who keep the traditions of the game alive.

As a result, it is vital that you not only try to develop your players IN rugby but also THROUGH rugby. This means adopting a holistic approach to your coaching, which will not only help develop better rugby players but also better people.

Good coaches should be able to develop their players’ technical, tactical, mental, movement, physical, and lifestyle capabilities. This resource provides guidance to help you to do so.
