U14 Boys & Girls

At the U14 level, rugby becomes more expansive and closely resembles the game seen on TV. U14s play 13 vs 13 on nearly a full field, with flankers being the two positions omitted. The rules around tackling and the breakdown are similar to older age groups, with fully contested rucks. The set piece is modified for safety as players acclimate to the scrum and lineout.

Coaching at this level emphasizes technical core skills such as catch/pass, tackling, ball handling in contact, and rucking, as well as tactical skills for attacking and defending space. At Nomads, the core World Rugby values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline, and sportsmanship are always highlighted.

Her approach to coaching is to create a fun, welcoming environment that focuses on the well-being and positive development of the player, including the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork.
