This new section is an amalgamation of several other sections on our existing site; we have taken Small Blacks VIP, Development and Articles and placed them all under one roof for ease of use.
The Small Blacks VIP section welcomes parents to its program for Small Blacks players and their families. We understand that it is really important for parents to have an understanding of their child's rugby family so that they can share in their child's experience and enjoyment. Parents play a vital part in creating the quality, enjoyable and safe family environment that exists in a Small Blacks environment. That is Small Blacks VIP - ‘very important parents'.
Provides comprehensive information about Coach Development and Player Development. The topics covered are wide-ranging but do focus on Key Factor Analysis of the skills of Rugby. This section also covers the Role of the Coach, Sport Psychology, Communication, Physical Preparation, Growth and Development, Skills Analysis and Teaching a Skill, so is a valuable tool for coaches at all levels.
On the existing site this was called ‘Gameplan' and the information contained here is the same. It is a selection of articles that appeared in the Quarterly Gameplan magazine but will also include new, updated articles through the course of the year.
