Bath Rugby Skills Series

Bath Rugby are excited to announce our new Skills Series Programme!

Our Skills Series will be led by Bath Rugby Academy and Community Coaches and will aim to deliver a two-hour session around a selected principle of the game.

BOOK NOW

We will be hitting five of our community clubs over five nights with each night having a different focus. Our coaches will aim to develop players in the following areas:

🤼 THE BREAKDOWN
Working on entering the breakdown in both attack and defence and how to be most effective. Technical advice on stance and how to remove the opposition, as well as game understanding around how to be effective when you’re not involved.

🧭 DECISION MAKING
Developing understanding around what the correct option looks like and identifying how decisions can influence outcomes. High focus on how players need to be creative!

⏩ PRINCIPLES OF ATTACK
Working on how to ‘Go Forward’ (RFU Principle of play) and understand how to attack space and create space. Development points around the importance of supporting the attack and how to use your instincts.

💥 THE CONTACT ZONE
Working on the technical points of the tackle and understanding variations in the contact zone to manipulate attacking threats.

🛑 PRINCIPLES OF DEFENCE
Working on leading that defensive line and understanding variations in approach to how we defend.

Our Skill Series has been designed by topflight coaches here at Bath Rugby with the focus to delve into specific rugby skills sets and explore how these can be applied in the game, as well as arming players with key takeaways to develop their skills in the game.

Each session is open to players aged between 13-16 years old and is open to all players across our community!
