What is included with this book?
This ideal introduction to mini and youth rugby for parents and coaches shows how young players should be properly introduced to rugby. The book covers the technical aspects of the game, including attacking and defensive drills, as well as skill drills to improve player ability. Also included is guidance on bigger issues that parents and coaches must deal with--such as how to develop the right ethos for a rugby team to get the best out of young players.
Every chapter evolves from a basic explanation, simple drills, and examples to more advanced explanations. Coaching tips, quotes from famous rugby players, and rugby diagrams are featured throughout.
