Our vision

Evolution Rugby has been developed to provide personal and bespoke mentoring programme for young aspiring rugby players. Here we #DecodeTheGame into 16 different aspects, unlocking the key components that underpin elite performance:

Catching & Passing – Hand Eye Coordination & Vision Training – Evasion Skills

Offloads – Kicking – Ruck & Jackal – Tackle – Scrum & Lineout – Position Specific

Speed & Agility – Physical Literacy – Social Approach – Mental Approach

Performance Lifestyle – Targets & Goal Setting – Performance Review

The aim of Evolution Rugby is not to take away from the fantastic work done by grass roots clubs and academy coaches, but to be detailed in our approach to support every athlete’s technical, tactical mental and social development. Providing them with a personalised plan that supports them through 2500+ Apprentice, Ace, Pro and Master levels of skill development.

Highly recommend Mark and PDS to any organisations or coaches wanting to develop their practice and needs centred coaching. It will change your life and the life of your students, if you are willing to be open minded.

The great @PDScoach on the importance of coaches making themselves redundant...

Have a listen (like many thousands have already) to his podcast episode here: https://t.co/cIR346Ybqe https://t.co/q4d6eOYLmW

A great day of learning and sharing the @PDScoach principles with coaches who want to challenge and stretch themselves, ultimately influencing more people.

Awesome day of learning at the @PDScoach masterclass. I met children between 10-14 that were more articulate about their athletic development than any adult athlete I’ve come across. PDS principles should be part of national governing body courses. https://t.co/GYwR7qtuNn

Great to sneak in some more learning in the UK with @PDScoach in Sheffield. Solidifying concepts and principles and seeing in action. Phenomenal self-aware, reflective and articulate young kids in action. https://t.co/nGKPJEYV6o
