The Introduction to the Breakdown and Set Piece

How to introduce rugby scrums and line outs to young rugby players.

At this age you have probably spent the past 2-3 years coaching your players about the basics of rugby, passing, running, support and most importantly the tackle zone. If I am correct there is one more area that is probably irking you, the set piece, i.e., the scrum and line out.

I can bet that your rugby players still pack down, not looking at the ball, the half back receives the ball, passes it to the nearest player or the player he runs into and that player runs back into the middle of the opposition defence. Am I correct?

You aren’t alone. The players at this age don’t understand the need to pass the ball away from the scrum or line out to a player in space, they are more likely to pick it up and run in any direction they see fit as long as they have the ball tucked under their arm.

So how do you coach the basics of the Set Piece (scrums and Line outs)?

The best way is to create pass only zones. Pass only zones are areas around the scrum and the line out in which the players know they have to pass the ball in order to get out of it and run again. Have a look at the diagram below.

The next stage is to introduce the technical aspects of the scrum and line out in isolated games such as piggy in the middle (line out jumping) and kneeling wrestling (for scrum stability). 

How is the Introduction to Break Down and Set Piece going to help you?

The introduction To Break Down and Set Piece Manual will revise the previous years skill development, contact games and break down techniques while also introducing the scrum and line out basics.

The manual will cover the following specifics of rugby;
Ball placement
Clean out
Leg drive
Ball control into and through contact
Stealing the ball
Using passing to get the ball wide
Attacking from a set piece
Correct scrummaging technique
Jumping and throwing in the line out

What’s the best way to coach kids rugby?

So how do the manuals work?

What do you get when you buy this manual?

Here are some reasons why Junior Rugby coaches have bought these rugby coaching manuals

* It’s a full season’s worth of coaching in one manual - The manual is 20 weeks of training session split into fortnightly skill game rotations. Each training session last 1 hour, with each skill game lasting 10 minutes. The sessions are easy to coach, keep the kids attention and are fun.
* Value for money - 20 weeks of rugby training sessions at $67, that’s around the $3.35 per week and it’s delivered straight to your computer with a simple click. That’s cheaper than a burger at McDonalds and healthier!
* It’s the perfect coaching resource - The manuals are 20 weeks of training sessions laid out from start to finish. They explain what to do, what to say and most importantly what relevance the game has to skill development.
* Increase your repertoire - The manuals have over 40 games designed to coach rugby to players of all skill levels.
* The rugby manuals are progressive - each manual is designed for a set skill level or age, meaning they provide the skills necessary for that age group or skill level and prepare the players for the next level of learning, which will occur the following year.
* Each rugby coaching manual has clear objectives - each manual is designed around the learning objectives of that age or skill level.
* The training sessions are easy to coach - The sessions are segmented into 10 minute time slots maximising the player concentration and capturing interest over the entire 60 minute session.
* The skills learnt are put to test in a modified game at the end - all the skills are used in the 20 minute game at the end of the training session to maximise retention and to prepare the players for the weekend’s game.
* The players love the rugby skill games - the battle of coaching the rugby skills necessary for improvement are wiped away. The players love the games and are happy to train which means they will learn. Gone are the days of coaching repetitive skill drills and constantly having to bring the players into line or regain their concentration.
* No more searching the internet for rugby skill drills - it’s all here from start to finish, just print it out, set up and off you go. When need be simply refer back to the print out to refresh the memory.
* Save it to your iphone - Take it where ever you go, it’s PDF so you can save it to your phone and read it when need be.
* Easy to follow Diagrams - each game has a diagram that explains how to set up and what to do.
* These games have been tested and proven - We have been running Holiday Clinics for the New South Wales Rugby Union and now the Australian Rugby Union in which the games have been put to test in the most critical arena. All players have loved the programs we run.
