I have been coaching age grade / junior rugby for 5 years now. I started coaching my eldest and I have now started coaching our youngest at Torquay Athletic RFC U7’s.
We have started using the buzz ball after I saw it advertised on Facebook. We use buzz ball games for warm ups as well as the first tag games. Using the buzz ball totally eliminates the ‘classic shouting’ of pass the ball from parents or coaches. This means that the U7’s players start to communicate with each other; learning as a team, rather rely upon the coaches to instruct them and tell them what to do. Our U7’s training has become massively more effective, fun and efficient. The players love the games, they’re talking more as a group. This is a great rugby product and I think something that all age grade rugby coaches could and should use.
Thank you again.
