Attached is a training session plan template and an illustration of how it can be used. This is copied from Better Rugby Coaching issue 154 (www.betterrugbycoaching.com), as published on 29th October 2007.

I hope you find the documents useful and look forward to your comments.

Here is a training session from a while ago.

Interesting to note that I wouldn't change much...

What would you do differently?

I especially like the outcome column. Trying to use that content to limit my talking - which has definitely improved, allowing the players more reps and to figure things out based on clearly defined objectives / possibilities. I also sometimes include a question to ask them halfway through the element, predicting what might be difficult for the group, though I'm getting better at coming up with thought-provoking ones on the fly based on what I see.

The only thing I would add or change would be a box for self reflection/review on the session. this could be a simple as just writing it on the back of your session plan. But if you added a box, you are more inclined to fill in the review.

This would allow you as a coach to jot down and quick self assessment. And able to add factors for a good or not so good session, pitch conditions/weather/number of players etc.

When you look back in a few months you should be able to see areas for development clearly recorded. And hopefully be able to track your personal progress to self reflect objectively.

Self reflection/review, Doesn't have to be chapter and verse. Just really the three key factors on your planning or even your personal performance. Type of things to consider:
-Was the session plan to easy/hard/pitched at the correct level?
-Did you you just stick to the plan or adapt it due to conditions or player ability to execute the elements.?
-What went well, what could have been better.
-And if you had to run the session again, what would you change or adapt.

The above are just things to consider when self reflecting.
