Tank Lanning Scrum School

Established by former Western Province tighthead prop, the Tank Lanning Scrum School (TLSS) offers professional private scrum coaching to both individuals and teams.

Under the guidance the BokSmart accredited Lanning (also the current UCT and SACS scrum coach) the TLSS offers professional coaching and mentorship on the set phase, with scrumming being the primary focus. Conditioning, individual and team technique, working as a unit, nutrition and mindset are the key pillars.

This at an agreed upon venue such as your school or club using the very latest in scrum coaching equipment – double harness bands, scrum twisters, sleds and scrum machines.

The Scrum Twister:

Double or single harness Scrum Bands:

Individuals – Be it the first time U9 prop just looking to stay on his feet, the U11B team prop trying to make the A side, the school 1st team prop prepping for Craven Week trials, or the WP Currie Cup prop looking to make the Stormers Super Rugby squad, the TLSS offers coaching/guidance tailored to their needs, this via private one on one sessions.

Teams – With 62% of the power coming from the locks and loose forwards, scrumming is primarily about the transfer of power through timing and technique. Lanning employs a unique system to get the best out of all 8 forwards, thus offering a service that could easily see coaches outsource their entire scrum coaching.

Conditioning – In conjunction with various S&C coaches, the TLSS is superbly set up to offer a full conditioning and nutrition component should you need it.

Rates – These are negotiable, dependent on circumstance, individual requirements, and the number of sessions booked. Give Tank a shout to chat about a program tailored to your personal needs.
