Game Zone - Skill Zone

1 year ago By Danny Robinson

Changing up our coaching with some food for thought.

When we are coaching our youngsters, we should be avoiding as many ‘drills’ as possible. When coaches sit their England Rugby Coaching award you will learn all about how to coach. The advice that is given is that we should be trying to coach through games as much as we can.

Youngsters learn better through games as it will engage them and not have them stood around.

The principle is;

Game Zone – Which involves playing a game i.e rugby netball.

Skill zone – is then identifying what is going wrong in the game then running a skill session addressing the problem I.e passing – setting a constant two v one game

Then put them back into the game and have more progressions and change the rules of the game.

Again, any question please contact me and I can come and demonstrate this.
