Stability, chest and head down, and kick through the ball

are just some of the parts to kicking the rugby ball out of the hand.

In 1st of this 2-part series, Valentin progresses through a number of kicking drills and identifies different aspects of the kick for the Pucara Club players to focus on.

Always, trying to keep the messages to 3 only and not overloading the players with information.

Kick first then run.

and Hands out to catch just like receiving a pass.

This week, Valentin completes his Kicking series by getting the Pucara Club players to Kick on the Move to Moving Targets at different distances.

As Valentin explains you can adjust the size of the Kicking Square to suit your players skill level.

It is about building the players’ confidence not destroying it by making it too hard.
