Offload Touch


Set Up:
A small sided game where an even number of players play touch rugby. Once players are touched on the hips they can run forward for a maximum of 4 steps before passing.

Key Factors:
• Once touched, players should not stop straight away, instead should keep running forward and look to offload.
• High tempo game where the coach can have a spare ball with him at all times. If the play stops or slows down, introduce a new ball to keep pace high.
• Encourage creativity and mindset around avoiding contact and keeping ball alive.
Look for sidestepping, passing, offloading and communication
