Warm up

3. Skill preparation

The warm up can be used not only to prepare the player for the session but also to develop the player’s skills at the same time. Coaches should integrate a technical element into the warm up which relates to the main focus of the session.

Players can work in pairs or in small groups focusing on the skills which will be required in the session, e.g., scrum, lineout, tackle, etc.
