Exercises for girls' rugby

Just come across these short videos of various individual exercises, aimed at girl rugby players, but really relevant to any young players - or come to that anyone else. They have been put together by Carl Walsh, coach of West Park U15s in Leeds.

They are pretty good. Some of the positives...
  • The drills are simple, low intensity exercises relying on repetition
  • No weights are used (as such things are, with good reason, frowned upon for young players)
  • They are all individual exercises, so can be used for all sizes of training group
  • Nonetheless many would make good warm-up exercises before a team session
  • The instructions are clear, with good information about the purpose of each drill
As well as being of value to players, these videos would be really useful for anyone doing GCSE PE or similar, not least as an example of how to make simple, clear and effective exercise videos!

The first video is below - the other seven can be found here
