The training consisted of several activities, cooperative games and a kinball session.After that, Jorge Villanueva presented his experience with Mixed Ability and rugby, based on his expertise as a teacher and a player for Union Rugby Almeria. Then, Pablo Elipe presented a study carried out by INICO at the University of Salamanca around the impact Mixed Ability has on players and the wider environment, with Fabian Sainz concluding the training with a specific module to support Mixed Ability coaches from a sport psychology perspective.
