To meet the needs of the U7/U8 player, tag rugby has been introduced as a game that will develop the fundamental skills of passing, evasion and basic decision-making.

The tag game meets the needs of the player for their age and stage of development. Too often the children are expected to meet the requirements of the full game that is inappropriate for their stage of development.

Research has concluded that children learn and develop better in an environment, which is based on fun.

Tag Rugby, is designed as a small sided modified version of the full game, maximises involvement, promotes fun and is simple for the players and coaches to understand.

If Children are to enjoy and take part in rugby they need too:

  • Take an active part in the game
  • Develop their rugby skills
  • A game for all players regardless of their ability
  • Develop their personal skills
  • Feel the benefits of being a sports person
  • Understand the laws of the game
  • Feel their success through development

The tag game is designed to encourage the development of the player and focuses on participation rather than the result of the game.

Children need to learn that participation and cooperation is vital for their development but also appreciate the values of being a member of a team.
