Coaches tackle key mini rugby skills

LEINSTER community rugby officer Stephen Gore delivered a workshop based on long-term player development at the fundamental phase (mini rugby) to the coaches in Seapoint Rugby Club.

Nearly 40 coaches attended the workshop where they spoke about the technical, tactical, physical and mental capacities of the players they would be coaching throughout the season.

Through the workshop the coaches spoke about different games and drills they could use in sessions to enhance young player's capabilities, and discussed the development of mental strength among their young charges through positive reinforcement and enthusiasm.

If you are interested in running a workshop or seminar like this in your club, please make contact with the community rugby officer in your area.
