The Camanachd Association has launched its extended support resources. The resources are targeted at certain groups but everyone with an interest in the great sport of Shinty will find information that will extend their awareness. iGamePlanner Shinty is very pleased to be a central part of these new resources.

Graham Cormack said "Shinty has been incorporated into this worldwide coach’s website [www.iGamePlanner.com]. Over 20 practices have already been uploaded, and linked to the Coaching Shinty You Tube channel, but we would like to see people adding and sharing their own ideas.

Rugby - Understanding the Moving Game Part 5

Posted in News - Rugby Union

In Part 5 of Rugby - Understanding the Moving Game we look at Model 2, the Pentrating Game in more detail.

We look at the technical and tactical development of this form of handling game, working on coming from a deep axis. The Coach needs to establish the main principles linked to this type of play:

1. To go forward

2. How to support by using rhythm - pass, pass, penetrate

3. Playing in the gaps between defenders

4. Brief regrouping of the attackers when momentarily stopped or slowed

5. Constant change of attacking points done quickly in order to disorganise the defence

In Part 4 of Rugby - Understanding the Moving Game we look at Model 1 in more detail.

In Model 1 the combination of penetrating play and wide play are explored. This model deals with the dynamic or moving game in open play. The players are encouraged to understand when to move from one form of play, (penetrating), to another form, (wide), and the reasons for doing so.

SnapShot makes life much easier

Posted in News - General News

The new SnapShot feature in iGamePlanner has made it even easier to produce coaching articles for websites and online manuals. SnapShot is a tool to help you take an image of the part of the plan you’re interested in. You can then use the image in articles you may need to produce.

Using just the right image will make your plans stand out more and using the Weblink tool, again part of iGamePlanner, you can link the image to an animation of the plan. Perfect for getting your message across.

Here’s a link to a plan created by Dean Alcock, top soccer coach in the Minnesota area. Take a look at Dean’s plan and see if iGamePlanner can help you with your coaching - http://bit.ly/Wj2BWb
