Coach the Coaches - New Rules of Play

Read more about our new programme of Coach the Coaches workshops for Under 7, 8, 9 and 10 team coaches, parents and school teachers

London Wasps are pleased to announce a new strand to our popular Coach the Coaches programme of Continuous Personal Development (CPD) workshops.

New Rules of Play is the progression from the successful Shaping the Game trials, that ran throughout the country last season.

There are some fundamental changes in rules at these ages to simplify delivery and to introduce the game in incremental
stages to help children to learn and enjoy playing the game. The philosophy of a child-centred approach to the game by clubs,
coaches & other volunteers is central to the success of the programme.

The London Wasps Community Team have worked closely with the RFU to develop a programme of workshops for coaches. The
workshops combine group theory work with practical activity, all of which are designed to help a coach to;

  • Recognise the key changes in the rules
  • Identify the key skills for the age group with the new rules of play
  • Practice the new skills involved in the New Rules of Play
  • Experience a match to feel the New Rules of Play in action

While much of the workshop activities involve the delegates in practical skills and games, it is not compulsory for every delegate to join in. Some delegates may prefer to take part in an 'observation only' basis. Our New Rules of Play workshops will run from 7pm to 8.30pm.
