This review is from: Rugby Games & Drills (Paperback)
This book is easily one of the most useful coaching books I have seen and used, for any sport.
It is very well laid-out and produced, with easy to understand diagrams for all the drills. The book contains over 115 activities, for training, tactics and techniques, alone with coaching points and variations on the activities. The book is broken into a number of chapters that focus on different elements of the game, and ancillary areas. They are:
Using Drills and Games
Small-Sided Handling Games
Small-Sided Kicking Games
Attacking and Defensive Drills
Bag and Shield Drills
Non-Specific Rugby Games
Small-Sided Rugby Games
Large-Sided Rugby Games
Fitness Requirements for Rugby
Planning for the Season
As you can see, the book does not only focus on drills and games, but covers a number of other - important - aspects of preparation such as general and specific fitness, and seasonal planning ideas and guidance.
An excellent resource for coaches of any level, there are activities in the book suitable for all ages and levels of ability, contact and non-contact.
