With the Rugby World Cup in full flow now in Tokyo what else could we play this week but our own games of Rugby. We welcomed a lot of new faces to the session this week, and it is always good to see new members.
We started off with a warm up game of Tag followed by some Parachute games - as it was so successful last week.
It was then out with the Rugby balls and to start with they worked in pairs passing to each other. They then formed a circle and started passing around to each other. That developed in to one player trying to run around the outside of the cricle faster than the kids could pass the ball within it.
From there the coaches had the kids running through the cones with the ball, moving the ball around the body, then passing while they were running. Finally they passed the ball to each other over & under and side to side, so in a line they either passed backwards through their legs, over their heads or around their bodies to the side.
After the break we played a Tag Rugby game, Dragon's Den, where one player runs down the hall to collect a ball and then tries to get back 'home' without getting tagged by the 'dragon'. All the kids got involved and were enthusiastic showing a great level of skill.
