Maintaining Focus – Latest exercise (No.3) now published
*** Considered responses for ” No.2 – The Ball Carrier in a Tackle” and questions for “No.3 – First Arriving Player at a Tackle” are now published. ***
The Executive Committee is very keen to ensure that the Society maintains both social and developmental contact with members.
In support of this, Andy McMillan has developed The Maintaining Focus initiative, which is a series of training and development resources to help referees and referee advisors/coaches “keep their brains going” until whenever the game restarts.
The first of these consists of questions relating to the recent World Rugby pronouncements on “The Tackle Area”, which included supporting video clips.
Here’s the links to the exercises published so far:
|Maintaining Focus No.1 – The Tackler||Questions||Considered Responses *|
|Maintaining Focus No.2 – The Ball Carrier in a Tackle
|Questions||Considered Responses *|
|Maintaining Focus No.3 – First Arriving Player at a Tackle
|Questions||Considered Responses yet to be published *|
The exercises are self-explanatory and designed to do no more than ask members to consider the issues that arise in the clips provided. It is not a quiz and your papers will not be ‘marked’!!!!!!
The first exercise document contains further background information.
*: The considered responses were gathered from a range of referees and advisers. Members are strongly encouraged to answer the questions on their own before looking at the responses, in order to strengthen the learning experience.
