Scrummaging clinic at James Madison University

The MARFU U23 Head Coach, Lisa Rosen, will be conducting a scrummaging clinic on Sunday, Feb 10th at James Madison University. Registration will be at 9:45 AM; the clinic will start at 10 AM and go until 2 PM.

This clinic will be open to all female U23 and U19 players.

This scrummaging clinic will cover a variety of areas - core strength, balance, agility and strength for scrummaging, specific roles of the 8, 2, and flankers, pre-engagement setup, engagement and post engagement techniques, application of pressure, and secondary drive.

Groups that advance quickly will have an opportunity to work on wheeling and channeling techniques.

Coaches and player-coaches are strongly encouraged to attend.

The methods and the communication system introduced is the same that will be used with the MARFU U23 side, so players with those aspirations (1-8) will benefit tremendously from attendance.

Players are asked to donate $5 each to cover the cost of travel/equipment - if this is an issue please contact Lisa directly.

If a team brings their entire pack and numbers permit, we will be happy to train you as a unit.

Assisting Lisa will be several USA Women's National Team pool players and MARFU Senior Select Side players, all fully trained in the techniques we will be teaching you.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Roshna Wunderlich wunderre@jmu.edu or Lisa Rosen - coachingrugby@gmail.com. Coaches with questions, please contact Lisa directly.

Female U19 players as well as U23 players are welcome to attend. Directions will be posted on the VRU website shortly.
