Sevens Introduction Course

Our two-day Sevens Introduction Course is the perfect way for young players to experience the game of rugby sevens for the first time. From developing existing rugby skills and practices to focusing on more sevens related play, it offers primary school aged youngsters to build in confidence and experience in a fun and inspiring environment.

The course aids young players transitioning from minis rugby towards junior rugby, and offers them the chance to practice their skills and develop in an environment focused on movement, ball retention and passing.

The skills learned on the introduction course provide the perfect building blocks to take forward on to our hugely popular Foundation and Development Courses as the player gets older.

Highlights include

Warm up like the professionals – complete the same warm up as international players before they play in a World Sevens Series
Ball handling and passing – being comfortable with a rugby ball, passing from both hands and learning techniques that will improve your all around game.
Tackling – practising tackling techniques and ball recycling both in possession and in defence.
Decision making – Thinking about the decisions you make in rugby  with the ball, when your team is in possession and when you are defending.
Refereed matches – where players can put everything together and unleash their new skills and tactics.

Who should attend? Boys of all abilities from u10s & u11s (school year 5 & 6) age groups. Open to all players regardless of prior rugby experience.

Coaches: Coaching of our introduction courses is led by a number of our junior coaches, these are players and coaches who are building their coaching experience and taking their first steps on the coaching ladder. As part of the course participants will also get the chance to meet established international players and experienced coaches, including the likes of Mike Friday, Phil Greening, Tom Mitchell, James Rodwell, Ollie Phillips, Tom May, James Bailey and Jack Walsh.
