Focus: Training jammer's to have more control of the way their body enter the pack and aiming only for legal target zones.
This 2 part drill should ideally follow drills done on stopping and speed control.
Groups of four: one jammer, three blockers.
Part 1: The jammer has a run up and aims to control their speed before making contact with the pack, their main focus should be on going in sideways. They can through any gap AS LONG AS IT IS SIDEWAYS.
The blockers block at 70% but have to maintain contact with at least one of their team members.
Part 2: Add in a hit into the legal zone of the wall you’re approaching, with this focus on a target area to make contact with - but still assert the jammers should be going through sideways.
This can be a transitional hit for the more advanced people. THE MAIN FOCUS HERE IS HITTING THE LEGAL ZONE.
If the jammer keeps forgetting to go sideways instruct them to cup themselves, one hand over their bum crack and the other over their crotch.
This drill is intended to be used in combination with other jammer techniques, not as a standalone technique. It will work best in combination with other strategies e.g. stretching the wall out and agility based techniques.
