Tackle touch is a contact game that focuses on technique rather than the power of the contact. 

The game is a normal game of touch, however when a touch is made, both ball carrier and defender put their chests to the floor. 

They then bounce back up, for the defender to make a low chop tackle. 

This takes out alot of the power of the colision and means the defender can focus more on technique. 

Coaching points

  • Quick bounce off the floor. 
  • Body height in contact 
  • Foot position.
  • Head position - Cheek - Cheek. 
  • Leg drive - Positive hit.
