When designing sessions, it is important to remember, players have had limited contact exposure over the last few months, so need to be reintroduced at a pace suited to the individual to reduce risk of injury and build confidence.

To help build confidence and reduce the risk of injury we recommend starting with a higher amount of Skill Zone activity focussing on technique and body movements in smaller groups with small amounts of Game Zone contact activity. This ratio of Skill Zone to Game Zone may change as the players become more physically and mentally adapted to contact again, however it is good practice to revisit this throughout the season.
