Coaches take part in education programme


Earlier this week, Saracens Academy coach Matt Davies shared his thoughts on utilising movement of the ball within certain game situations in the latest session of the Saracens Coach Education Programme.

More than 100, coaching from across Hertfordshire and north London took part in the session called ‘Movement, Ball Carrying and Momentum’  which provided a unique insight into the key underlying concepts that the club instils in its players to suit the modern game.

For over an hour, Davies delivered a practical session utilising the Saracens Academy players.  The practical session allowed the coaches to observe a number of  drills, games and ideas that are implemented at both an academy and senior level at Saracens.

The Coach Education programme as a whole looks to facilitate coach development as well as supply coaches with ideas to take back to their clubs and implement with their own players.

The Saracens Coach Education programme provides access to some of the best coaches in the Premiership and top tips from the coaches responsible for running the best academy coaching system in the country.

In addition to this, club visits from senior community staff ensure that Saracens are able to share their ideas with grass root club coaches and also provides them with an opportunity to have a run around themselves!
