How NZ develops its young rugby players

  • Came across this interesting video about the systems in place to keep children interested in rugby in New Zealand. Some interesting plans and ideas that they adopt there. Also, some ones that I think would be hard for people to accept (he admits that they are not universally accepted there). For example, not just having an A, B and C squads with all the best in A, and so on down the tree...but to create 3 even teams with ability levels mixed across.

    Hopefully this link will work...

  • This video should be a compulsory view for all youth coaches We've been steadfastly following this approach (endorsed by the RFU) outlined in the video at York Rufc for the u12s who we've  looked after since u6! 

    We've built up a squad of over 40 players as a number of teams have been losing players however the challenge this Season is getting them all game time as a lot of clubs seem to lose players ..

  • Perfect. Such a shame adults always think they know what kids want and are so desperate to win the league. I wonder who these people are doing it for.
