Dealing with bad player behaviour

1. Warn them

2. Ask them to step away

3. Inform ambassador

4. Never abuse a player either verbally, emotionally or physically


HRG ko nga Kaiako guide lines

1. In a player we look for in this order of importance:

A. Character

B. Disciple

C. Third and a long way from points A and B is Talent

2. Always begin your sessions with a short meeting reviewing your last session then previewing your next training and setting out clear objectives

3. Warm ups is always a great way to do your ABCs and create the right atmosphere and intensity for your trainings

4. Ruck & Run trainings meaning keep the rhythm high:

-2min water breaks

-Usually the problem with rhythm in training is the fault of Nga Kaiako because we either A. Talk too much or B. Are disorganised

5. When a player makes a mistake ask them how can they fix their mistake because at the end of the day the player must understand what they did wrong but more importantly how they can fix it 

6. At the end of trainings do a short review with 3 key points and make sure all feedback is positive


Training philosophy 

The players should understand what they are doing but more importantly why they are doing it


Training phrase

Coach the skill not the drill


Training process

1st Phase: ABC skills & drills

Goal: Static skill to skill done moving


2nd Phase: Small sided & over loaded games 

Goal: Skills being executed at pace


3rd Phase: Games with advantage to non focus team. e.g when focusing on team attack let def team play offside

Goal: Skills being executed at pace and under pressure with a huge focus on work off the ball & support play/lines


As we will be dealing with young kids, most countries will require POLICE VETTING. Can you find out how to go about this in your country of residence and we will reimburse you for the charges.
