Rating: 4
from 1 members ratings
This session is designed to teach the basics of tackling to your young and inexperienced players - eliminating their tackling fears and improving their contact confidence.

It's not all about strength, particularly with juniors, instead what is important is confidence, technique and physical ability. That's why in this session we focus on tackling technique and safety, ensuring players put their head on the correct side, wrap their arms tightly and drive with their shoulder.

To get your players stalking their prey and rocketing into the tackle we start with a simple tackle bag warm up and then increase the challenge through exciting drills that will get your players diving for the tackle and more confident in bringing down their man.

Safety and technique are the top priority in this session, with a gradual progression in difficulty and lots of tackling repetition to reinforce motor patterns and build confidence.
