Stage 6: Training to Perform

STAGE 6

Training to Perform

Maximize Rugby Performance

 

The Player - INNOVATES

The players in this stage are generally around 19- 23 years old for men and around 18 - 21 years old for women - Adult provincial representative players for Ontario Blues or Ontario Storm

These players have the capacity to go beyond the rehearsed repertoires, strategies and tactical solutions and innovate when the situation demands. Highly competitive and driven, they should excel in their positional and functional roles as well as have the capacity to fulfill multiple roles in general movement play.

They must have the ability to deal with the pressure of public expectation, interest and intrusion together with self-management and self-development.

  

The Coach - EMPOWERS

Coaches must release rather than restrict the potential of the players and other coaching staff, otherwise the potential for creativity and responsibility will be stifled. The coach must create an environment where trust and respect between all squad members is established while still maintaining ultimate responsibility for team performance and results. 

 

The Game - RESULT

Provincial pride and pressure are heightened at this level. Players are vying for national and international positions. The focus shifts to winning. More player analysis of both individual and opposition is developed. Dealing with travel and pressures of playing away from home are evident.
