Tackling for 10 & 11's

Hi, at the moment having trouble with our junior team getting to tackle correctly.....we've trained well and brought various drills to tackle prperly but come game day the kids are going too high and grabbing jerseys.....only one of two have a great technique!! So any idea for teaching better tackle technique for 10 & 11 year olds? Thanks and look forward to you're response.

Check their fitness levels.  Had similar issue and on beep test found the kids super unfit.  If the unfit they get lazy on technique.  Fitter they got the better they tackled.

do tackle games with the defenders holding tennis ball, this stops them from grabbing shirts.

Do drills where the defender must fold his arms, and get as close as possible to the ball carrier with his feet. In that way they will learn to get up close with the ball carrier, and tackle with their shoulders.
