Within the Dragons region, the emphasis on coaching is focussed on DEVELOPMENT and not just education. We believe that it is our responsibility to provide coaches with opportunities to better themselves no matter what their background and previous coaching and playing experience. We have a number schemes and initiatives that deliver our coach development programme.
|WRU Coaches Locker|
|The Coaching Locker is available free of charge to anyone who needs to coach young players in the basic skills of the game. Video clips featuring young players practising drills are on line for coaches to see exactly how their routines will be performed in training. The films are complimented by easy-to-read diagrams which explain what coaches should aim to achieve in session after session.
The information has been put together by a panel of WRU Rugby Department experts calling on top level coaches to draw up the fine detail of the activities. The coaching aids are aimed at children from six to 16 and the WRU will expand the site to include senior coaching aids later. The activities aim to teach young players the basic skills of running, catching, passing and continuity.
The Coaching Locker uses young players in the video clips in order to show exactly how the drills will be performed for real in sessions.
Coaches can then see what their activities and sessions should look like when they run their own young teams through the programmes.
