Introduksjon til rugby for kommende gymlærere

Onsdag 19. april 2017 hadde Sagene IF en introduksjon til rugby for studenter som utdanner seg til å bli gymlærere på Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus (HiOA).  Nedenfor følger en rapport fra et vellykket rugbyarrangement på Voldsløkka. Takk til Kevin Gormley, trener for juniorlaget til Sagene IF Rugby, for oppsummering av dagen.

Sagene Rugbys Juniordepartment took on one of their more ambitious coaching plans to date by contacting Pål Jåbekk at HiOA and suggesting that we take a training session with their student gym teachers who are doing their first year of their bachelorsdegree  «Faglærerutdanning i kroppsøving og idrettsfag» http://www.hioa.no/Studier-og-kurs/LU/Bachelor/Faglaererutdanning-i-kroppsoeving-og-idrettsfag. Coaches from Sagene and Blindern Rugby Clubs are already involved in the Schools Project coaching students in schools in the Sagene/ Voldsløkka catchment area and are setting up to coach teachers at some of these schools also.

When Pål was contacted through Elin Longva, leader of the working group in Sagene IF Rugby with the suggestion and contact details, he was very positive and a date and time was set. Contact was made with Chris Spencer (SRK) at NRF, again the plan was met with positivity and a guide to receiving funding was sent to us. As there was the possibility of up to sixty students taking part they were broke into 2 groups, Group 1 from 11:30 to 13:00, Group 2 13:00 to 14:30.

As so often happens with seemingly well planned activities there is room for crisis, this came in the form of a missing key to get into the storage room to get rugby balls, this was discovered to be the case at 10:40 and a distress signal was send out to all coaches. The situation was quickly calmed by none other than our Youth Rugby Leader John Michael Moulton saying I’m on the bus, balls and all. So not only did the session get the much-needed balls but also gained John Michael who stayed to join in turning a seemingly crisis into a very successful day as was shown in the very good feedback that we got from the students.

The session itself was broken into an introduction and history of the sport, basis passing and movement of the ball and then Tag Rugby games using the passing techniques practiced earlier. Many of the students come from varying disciplines of sports i.e. soccer, track and fields, long-distance and orienteering and American Football but once the strange concept of passing the ball backwards to go forward was overcome I found myself refereeing a number of very highly competitive Tag matches with all players contributing to their team – this certainly strengthens the idea that rugby is for all and caters to each person’s strengths and abilities. The session got its best feedback from Pål Jåbekk who upon arriving back at his office contacted Sagene RK about the possibility of 2 further sessions in the next semester with the same groups of students with the school funding the coaches. So from an early setback to a positive solution, successful training session to good feedback we now have new friends in HiOA.

Regionalt mesterskap i touch rugby

Totalt var det over 80 spillere fra 9 klubber som stilte i 6 herre-, 3 dame-, 6 mixed- (3 herrer og 3 damer) og 2 U16-lag til det aller første RM i

Blindern tok seieren i herreklassen i regionalt mesterskap i touchrugby

Blindern tok seieren i herreklassen i regionalt mesterskap i touchrugby

touch rugby på Østlandet.

Det ble spilt 40 kamper, scoret 152 tries og en meldt skade (forstuet håndledd) iløpet av de 4,5 timene som turneringen varte. Omtrent alle lag hadde en blanding av erfarne og nye spillere som fikk sin første smak av rugbykamper og sjanse til å prøve ut det de hadde trent på i løpet av vinteren.

Touch rugby spilles vanligvis om sommeren, på solrike dager, tørre baner og utenfor sesongen, som en ikke-fysisk utgave av rugby der fart og presisjon vinner kamper ovenfor rå kraft.

Det virket meget lovende i dagene før kampen, med nydelig solskinn, varmegrader og en tørr grønn kunstgressbane på Dælenenga. Dessverre endret dette seg så snart arrangørene begynte å rigge til telt for sekretariatet og kiosken en liten time før første kamp, med først små snøfnugg som så gikk over til skikkelig snøvær.

Mange av spillerne hadde meldt seg på lag i både mixed- og herre/dame-klassen, slik at når dagen var over hadde mange spilt mellom 8-10 kamper!

Sagene var et av to U16-lag som stilte i regionalt mesterskap i touch rugby.

Snø er ingen hindring for å spille rugby

Selv om det snødde, var kaldt og vått, så holdt de fleste ut ved å varme seg i garderobene mellom kamper, varm mat og drikke fra kiosken, heie på de andre som spilte, danse til musikken fra anlegget og at de aldri fikk mer enn 10-20 minutters pause mellom kampene.

Flomlyset kom raskt på og hjalp da det snødde voldsomt i perioder. Banen ble delt i to 45x65m store baner og kampene varte 10 minutter med 2 minutters pause før neste kamp var igang. Et dommerteam av 7 sørget for at kampene ble spilt etter enkle touch rugby regler som var enkle å forstå og oversatt til norsk og engelsk. Resultatene ble oppdatert fortløpende av dommerne og notert på en tavle i sekretariatet.

Ved slutten av dagen lå det et lag av 5-10 cm tettpakket snø på banen bortsett fra på mål- og sidelinjene som ble ryddet for snø jevnlig gjennom hele dagen av lagene som ikke spilte.

Under flomlyset ble vinnerne av de tre seniorklassene annonsert som Blindern i herre-, Oslo 1 i dame- og Oslo Grønn i mixedklassen. Herrene og damene fikk tildelt vandrepokal og medaljer av Oslo Rugbykrets mens vinnerne av mixedklassen kan hente seg en gratis burrito fra Freddy Fuegos, en tex-mex restaurant og ivrig sponsor av rugby i Oslo.

Snø er ingen hindring!

170 ungdomselever deltok på skoleturnering

Skolene som var representert var Ravnanger, Kleppestø, Gimle, Storetveit, Garnes, Olsvik og Holen.

I sluttspillet blandet vi jentelagene i de to puljene slik at nr 4 møtte nr 3 i den andre puljen osv. Jentene spilte semifinaler og finaler- altså alle i samme «turnering».

Guttene var delt inn i to aldersgrupper, som ikke møtte hverandre. Vi spilte ikke på tvers av puljene hos guttelagene siden det da kunne være at 8.trinn møtte 10.trinn. Dette pga størrelse forskjellen blant 8.trinn og 10.trinn.

Vi håper det blir gjentakelse til neste år! Flott arrangert av Trude og Siri !
