Learning Games

Why Learning Games?

Consider which aspects of training our players enjoy the most. If a group of children are on a field with a ball, it's not long before they will start playing a game- not a drill.

Think of teen players and older adults and the enjoyment and engagement that happens with that game of Touch at the start of training. We learn by DOING - think of learning to drive a car or a baby learning to walk. The closer we can replicate an actual game of rugby the more likelihood of our players developing the necessary skill sets (under pressure) required- there's ample evidence to back this up. A Learning Game approach at training will accelerate a player’s development they'll learn faster so why not get an edge over your opponents – sports coaching has been defined as the ability to change faster than your opponents.
