Munster Rugby recently attended Rockwell College to host a skills session for their Junior Cup players.
Costello presented on a skill development module where he identified the benefit of using the ‘whole-part-whole’ philosophy in coaching skills and focused on the importance of skill development.
The ‘Game Sense Approach’ to coaching was addressed by Mannix who identified how it develops players understanding of rugby by experiencing specific scenarios through the game.
Penney completed both nights with a decision making presentation where the attending coaches participated in interactive discussions through the benefits of video analysis.
The Cork coaches were also presented with a short video clip on the new Munster Rugby Interactive Coach resource website which is now live at www.munsterrugbycoachingindex.com
Details of same will be sent to all clubs and schools over the coming months.
