Rugby player Max Northcote-Green motivates our U13s
In rugby, as in all sports, we encourage our children to work hard and make the most out of every opportunity available, whether that be in matches or training. Our rugby coaching philosophy encourages skill development and we ask the children to push themselves and try new things. Nothing motivates and inspires our young players more than meeting real life sports people and this week we welcomed London Irish back row rugby player, Max Northcote-Green in for a training session with our U13s. Max delivered a fantastic session, working with the boys on technical and tactical skills surrounding the contact area. The boys learnt so much and are really looking forward to applying their new skills in their next match.
Our coaching priority is to develop individual skill levels and to provide each player with the ability to adapt to on field situations and scenarios. This is done by improving decision-making and providing the tools to adapt and execute a plan. Hearing from Max about his experiences of how he uses the skills he was teaching in his own matches inspired the children to take forward their new skills.
Rugby allows children to learn about themselves and their peers in competitive situations, dealing with adversity as a group, overcoming problems and instilling vital life values such as teamwork, sportsmanship and humility.
Dan Bather, Director of Sport, said,
Max really inspired the boys to become better players and it was fantastic to witness the passion for rugby rise amongst the children after his session.
