A session to help increase attacking options against a flat defence and communication between players, the chipper and chaser. MORE
Have your players forgotten how to tackle after their summer break? Revisit the key points in making an effective leg tackle with this activity that goes from warm-up to full contact.
Break down the tackle into its key points. Work on shoulder impact, grip, and then footwork with this low impact but busy session.
Shoulder just above the knee, head to the side, wrapping the arms around (bands of steel) and driving the legs to get the ball carrier to the ground.
Shut down the space quickly, be on the toes, get feet close to the tackle (foot in the imaginary hoop), arms ready and eyes open into the contact.
