Catch Kick Tackle
“Pass Catch Kick Tackle” is a unique
coaching aid that uses a fun approach to teach basic football-related
skills to young children.
The exercises in this multimedia CD-ROM are all based on having
fun with games, not on complex and potentially boring “drills”.
The resource is ideal for the rugby league or rugby union coach
of primary school age players and would be particularly helpful
for school teachers of children who have little or no grounding
in the rugby football codes.
Games which teach lessons in Pass-Catch, Kick-Catch and Contact-Tackle
skills are outlined in both diagrammatic and video format.
The video of each exercise shows an actual learning situation and
includes the sound track of a coach or teacher giving instructions
to the children.
rugby league and rugby union-based skills involved in the exercises
are broken down and displayed on video with accompanying explanatory
notes. There are notes for each exercise, equipment needs and exercise
variations (from easy to harder).
Each lesson is broken down into warm-up exercises, skill acquisition
and skill application. A coach or teacher’s own written comments
can be added to the database of lessons if required and each lesson
can be easily printed out.
