Lesson Plans and Resources

England Touch's schools team has put together a six-week lesson plan which introduces young people to Touch in a structured and fun way.

Lesson 1 Ball familiarisation, basic rules and conditioned games

Lesson 2 Passing backwards, development of rules in attack and defence

Lesson 3 To progress skills into a conditioned game of Touch

Lesson 4 To initiate a technical roll ball and understand the idea of a three-person drive

Lesson 5 To understand the main rules in Touch and apply them to a conditioned game through playing and refereeing

Lesson 6 To apply all learnt rules, skills and tactics in a game of Touch

These lessons can be delivered by teachers or coaches.

There are further continuing professional development sessions available to give teachers the skills they need to coach, and to train young people and teachers alike to become referees.
