coaching points for line out lifting

Coaching points for Lineout lifting Improving the core skills is important to a player and the team. But players, no matter how high their arousal levels are will need some new ways of approaching the core skill to add variety to the practices and prevent the skill becoming tedious. But first, before attempting this skill, the muscles have to be warm and relaxed without any areas of tightness. All of this will prevent any form of injury occurring during any lineout jumping or lifting. 1. Selection Who should be lifted? A selection somatotypes should be involved being lifted, it's not just the second rows being the only jumpers. A Light and nimble player should be lifted at number two and a taller ectomorph at four. The number two jumper needs to be quick on their feet and be able to rise quickly to take a timed ball, which is thrown flat. Number four needs to get as high as possible, though not as quickly, because the ball is more likely to be lobbed. A flanker could be used as the front jumper. Who should lift? Again it may be worth ignoring the traditional combinations of props for lifters (front row) and considering what each numbered jumper needs. As number two needs a quick lift it would suit a shorter player, but certainly a strong, well co-ordinated lifter. ...read more.


The arms should be half raised, similar to that of a praying mantis, to give balance and avoid interference from the opposition. Leap like a ballerina, with the toes pointing down and the legs straight. The thrower: This doesn't always have to be the hooker. It is certainly worth trying out a few players because a great plan for the season ahead can easily disintegrate if the thrower gets injured at the start of the season and there is no one else to rely on. Lineout Glossary - Number two or front jumper - the first three players in the lineout form the two supporters and the front jumper in the middle. Number four and middle of the line jumper - though traditionally standing in the number four position, the middle jumper now moves around in the middle of the line between four and five and is supported by two players standing at either three, four, five or six. Flat ball - the thrower throws the ball on flat, fast trajectory, using timing and speed of the jumpers. Lob ball - the ball is thrown over the opposition. Can be used to exploit a particularly tall jumper. Front peel - when players catch and move the ball from the front of the lineout through the 5m channel between the lineout and the touchline. ...read more.


* Reinforcement whether it be positive or negative (satisfiers and annoyers) this will either strengthen or weaken the players stimulus response bond. * Arrange the practice to be as close as possible to a game situation. To improve a thrower's lineout throw they can practise throwing the ball into hoops held up in the air by another player, and the thrower has to get them in the hoops. As training progresses and the performer becomes more accurate the hoop can get smaller and smaller then replace the hoop with actual jumpers and then opposition jumpers to increase the pressure. At this stage of learning feedback for the performer is extremely vital especially for a novice performer either cognitive or associative performers. The feedback needs to be specific and easily understood. The most common type of feedback which novice performers will receive is extrinsic feedback which can be received from a teacher/coach/the crowd and team mates. It is received via Perception, these are environmental cue's being picked up auditory or visually. Intrinsic feedback is given commonly to the elite performers which they will receive via proprioception this being kinaesthesis through the joints/ligaments/muscles and nerves or through equilibrium, these are autonomous performers. If performers are at their optimum arousal level then they will perform more efficiently and more likely to achieve success, the performer only concentrates on the most important environmental cue's. Cognitive performers perform better with lower arousal because they will become to anxious if their arousal levels are high and will have poor concentration and start to panic. ...read more.
