  Tackling Tips

As we all know, proper tackling is a crucial part of the game of football. On this page is a collection of instructional videos, tips, and drills that will help you coach tackling to your players in a both effective and safe manner no matter what age or level of skill.

Reminders:

  • ALWAYS make sure the athletes head is UP while tackling
  • NEVER allow athletes to lead with their helmets, leading with helmets is extremely dangerous and can result in serious injury or death
  • Helmet to helmet contact should be discouraged at all times
  • Be mindful of athlete match ups during tackling drills (Size and skill)
  • Mouth guards should be securely in place AT ALL TIMES during tackling drills
  • Be aware of the fear of contact with young/first year players
