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!
