Last Thursday, December 4, Community Development Manager Ross Peacock delivered a tag rugby update at Chessington Community College.
20 teachers from a number of local schools in the Kingston borough attended the course that gave a step-by-step guide through the tag version of the game.
The course began with a walk through of the rules and regulations for the 2014/15 season allowing all attendees to ask questions and get to grips with any amendments made from that of the season before.
After some good discussion during the classroom session the course then took a more practical, hands on approach by looking into session structure and how you structure your session to ensure it is beneficial and enjoyable for all players. This then progressed into a little refereeing update that allowed attendees to watch a practical example before putting it all into practice in their assessment.
Sandra Blenkinsop, Schools Games Organiser for the Kingston School Sports Partnership, said: “The Tag Rugby CPD course delivered by London Scottish was informative and useful for the Primary Teachers that attended.
“It covered the basics of Tag, from the warm up to the game, including drills and small game ideas.
“It was fun to take part in and has up-skilled the teachers that attended.”
London Scottish Community Development Manager, Ross Peacock, added: “The day was a huge success and it was great to see so many teachers showing such a great interest in learning and increasing their knowledge of the game.
“CPD sessions are hugely important to the London Scottish Schools and Community Programme.
“We work so hard throughout the season with so many children and young adults and we must ensure that we work with the teachers and the staff at the school also to ensure continued development of all the schools that we work with.
“It was a great day that I very much look forward to delivering again during future seasons.”
