Rugby

The warm up game:

  • Each child will receive their own rugby ball; we will talk about the colours of the rugby ball, the shape of the rugby ball & what the rugby ball feels like.

‘Touchdown’ the children will place the ball under their arm, on command they will run around until the coach shouts out ‘touchdown’, the children will then try to touch the rugby ball down on the floor as quickly as they can

 

The Lesson Structure:

  • The children will start by walking with their rugby ball in their hands, following the coach throwing and catching the ball with their hands
  • The children will hold the ball in their hands, with the ‘pointed’ part of the ball facing the ground. On the coaches command the children will drop the ball and chase it in the direction it the ball falls, trying to stop the ball before it stops itself
  • The children will then be shown how to balance their ball on a cone. Each child will the stand behind their ball, before kicking the ball from the cone

 

The warm down game:

  • The children will be divided onto two teams (e.g. the ‘Red’ team & the ‘Blue’ team); they will stand in a line with the coach standing in between the two teams. The coach will have two rugby balls in their hand (red & blue). When the coach throws the two balls, the first child from the ‘blue’ team & the first child from the ‘red’ team will attempt to retrieve their teams ball & bring it back to the coach as quickly as possible, this will continue until each child has had a turn
