Sport Ibiza: Tag Rugby Course

Probably the last thing you'd think of at the mention of the word Ibiza is the game of rugby union

Probably the last thing you'd think of at the mention of the word Ibiza is the game of rugby union, but we do have it here, with the Ibiza 1st XV in action fortnightly at the Can Misses sports stadium during the winter.

In September, a course is being run on Tag Rugby, a non contact version of the sport. The course is suitable for teachers, coaches and sports leaders to introduce the non-contact game of tag rugby which provides a safe and simple introduction to the game of rugby union.

The Balearic Rugby Federation (FBR) has developed this course to offer people the chance of working with young players in the non-contact game, the opportunity to grow their knowledge and skills and in doing so improve the experience afforded to young players entering the game.

An early positive experience has been shown to lead to longer-term player participation.Tag rugby introduces both the player and the coach to the fundamentals of evasive running, handling and passing, as well as basic rules and principles of the game of rugby union.

Tag is a fast paced, fun game suitable for boys and girls. The
invasion nature of the game provides opportunities to develop a basic understanding of principals underlying rugby and other team sports such as football, hockey or netball.
