The second competition event is the Virtual Primary Tag Rugby. Year 6 pupils will take part in this event during their PE lesson.
- For this activity each year group will have a different amount of time to perform their Tag Rugby Drill.
- There will be 3 separate competitions covering all age groups with the points being added together to give an overall school score.
Scoring and Levels
Please chose ONE of the activities below to perform to your allocated time allowed.
Each level from Easy to Challenging becomes slightly harder and therefore more points are scored for performing them correctly.
Easy – 1 Point:
Running with a Ball – Run while holding a rugby ball with 2 hands to a marked distance of 4 meters and return to your starting point e.g. shuttle run. 1 point will be awarded every time you pass a cone with a ball in your hands.
Medium – 2 Points:
Rugby Passing in Pairs – Find a partner, stand side on and perform a rugby style pass to them. Your Partner should be at least 3 meters away. 2 points are scored every time your partner catches your pass
Hard - 3 Points:
Zig Zag Try – Mark out an 8-meter zig zag shuttle run, the players will need to run it and out of the cones to reach the other side with the ball. Every time they pass through a gate they will score a try and receive 3 points.
Challenging - 4 Points:
Receiving on the Move – Follow the steps of Stage 2, by keeping 3 meters apart from your partner. Run with the ball and pass it to your partner while you are both moving. 4 points are scored every time they catch the ball on the move.
Top Tip: Mark out channels for this activity, if you have a limited space player can go and a down a smaller area.
