GIVE HEINEKEN LIGHT TAG ANOTHER GO! 

Did you play on one of our Individual "Join A Teams" in the past? Were you put on a team with players of all different abilities? Were ye thrown into a league at the deep end, playing against teams with years of experience? Did you have an unenjoyable time, losing heavily each week?

If so, we apologise for this experience...and hope you will give us a second chance. Based on Join a Team player feedback, we have developed a new concept called the New to Tag Coaching Academy, specifically aimed at complete beginners who have no knowledge or understanding of the game or the rules. This academy forms a key part of our pursuit to improve the game and every player's overall Tag experience.

FEEDBACK FROM "JOIN A TEAM" PLAYERS:

- Vast majority are newbies - so playing experienced teams in a league situation results in huge mis-matches

- Most Join a Teams only meet for the first time on the first night

- A team needs time to 'gel', even to get to know team mates' names!

- It's difficult for one person to take on the task of organising the team, which can result in low player attendance

- All of this can lead to frustration, especially when Tag is supposed to be a fun, enjoyable, social summer evening sport.

c

When all the above is taken into account, it is clear to see that the old Join a Team structure is not the ideal way to introduce new individual players to the game. Therefore, in association with Heineken Light, we have developed the New To Tag Coaching Academy, which will result in the following important improvements to your overall Tag experience:

c

- ORGANISATION: You still register as an individual or with friends but we do all the organising each week on the night - just simply show up!

- COACHING: Our experienced coaches will teach you the basics of Tag, including throwing, catching, tagging, positions on the pitch etc

- DRILLS: Lots of short interactive drills, developing specific skills and enabling you improve your Tag game!

- SWAP TEAMS: We randomly assign you to a different team each night so you'll play with lots of people over the course of the academy

- SOCIAL: You'll meet a lot more people than previously, including fellow players, referees, coaches and venue managers

- NO SCORES KEPT: This course is non-competitive - there will be no scores kept in any match you play. It's all about enjoyment!

- LESS COMMITMENT: If you're not around one night due to work or holidays, no big deal...you're not letting anybody down!

These New to Tag Coaching Academies are extremely sociable and, when everything finishes up for the night, everyone is encouraged to retire to the "clubhouse" for post match refreshments and discussion about who scored the best try, made the best tag etc...!!!

WHAT IS TAG?

Tag is a non-contact form of rugby. Male and female adults play equally on a mixed team. The aim is to remove a Velcro tag from an attacking players’ shorts who is running with the rugby ball. Basically, Tag is an evasion game with lots of running and passing. Male players get 1 point and females get 3 points for scoring a ‘try’. It is lots of fun and the rules are quick to learn!

HOW DOES ‘NEW TO TAG’ COACHING ACADEMY WORK?

1. Register online as an individual (not as a whole team!) for the night and venue that suits you best. Choose from the options below.

2. Come along with your shorts, runners and tshirt on the first night, where we will put you on a random team.

3. Every night of the Academy, we will change and mix up the teams, so you will be playing with lots of different players and meeting lots of new people

4. Each Coaching Academy session is 45 minutes long. For Spring, it is a 6 week course - for Summer, it is 9 weeks.

5. You will learn the basics of the game, including how to catch and pass a rugby ball correctly, how to remove a tag, evasion skills etc.

6. For Weeks 1 & 2, the coaching sessions kicks off with 20 mins of warm-up games and fun interactive skill drills, all based around Tag. 

7. Then we break into 25 mins of small-sided matches, where you can test your new skills in a fun and relaxed environment - we mix the teams each week.

8. In Week 3, you will play in a 45 min round robin blitz against other beginner players.

9. This "three week cycle" of two weeks coaching, plus third week fun non-competitive blitz is repeated over the duration of the courses.

10. EVERY WEEK, all Academy players + coaches retire to the Heineken Light Tag Clubhouse for a well-earned post-match ‘refreshment’ together!
