Coaching Mini Rugby
These documents are designed to help coaches introduce beginner players (under-7s and under-8s) to Mini Rugby.
Mini 1 Rugby coaching sessions revolve around players playing the game and the capacities of players at this level dictate that development is best promoted through the medium of play.
Each of the six session plans that form this resource, therefore, centre around games and game-like activities where the players play.
