PE Activity #33 - "Tail Touch Rugby"


This variation of touch rugby involves players wearing velcro tails, which makes it more challenging for the opposing team to make a successful touch. It's a fun way to improve agility, speed, and teamwork.


  1. Velcro belts or tails

  2. Rugby ball

  3. Cones or markers to set up the playing area


  1. Set up a rectangular playing area and divide the class into two teams.

  2. Each player wears a velcro belt or tail, which has a tail hanging from it.

  3. Players are not allowed to touch the ball or other players with their hands, only by pulling off an opponent's tail.

  4. If a player's tail is removed, they must stop and hold up the tail to show that they have been touched.


  1. The aim of the game is to score as many tries as possible while preventing the opposing team from scoring.

  2. The game begins with a kick-off, and the team in possession of the ball has six touches to try to score.

  3. If they do not score, the ball is turned over to the other team.

  4. To score a try, a player must run the ball across the opposing team's try line and touch the ball down on the ground.

  5. After scoring, the team that scored the try kicks off to start the next play.


  1. To make the game easier, you can allow more touches before the ball is turned over.

  2. You can also make the playing area smaller to encourage more passes and less running.


  1. To make the game harder, you can decrease the number of touches allowed before the ball is turned over.

  2. You can also make the playing area larger to encourage more running and longer passes.
