I like these drills because the players have to start outside their comfort zone and yet will enjoy the success when they are good at them. Ideal for warm ups and for work ons at the start of sessions.
I have used all these drills/activities and found them to work well with a good range of players. Probably a bit far advanced for Under 11s unless they are particularly skilful.

Here is a team building exercise video. Obviously you can use the equipment they provide, but some of them are generic too.
Remember: rugby is a dynamic game of changing situations and these exercises can build rugby mental strength.

I like the idea behind this session, but you might think there are some problems with the players flying off their feet.
But good for looking at scrum body profiles. Perhaps it would be good to put some weight on the bags. A cheap alternative to a scrum machine?

Loved this video, dying to try it out soon. Must be great for young players who are learning how to tackle.
