Concussions and the liabilities that go with them are putting a high demand on proper tackling techniques in today's game. The good news is that you can be a physical team without going full contact in your practices.
In this DVD, Steve Fex does an exceptional job of showing coaches how to teach the basic principles of tackling without full contact. Using his techniques and drills, coaches can be confident they will not lose the physical nature of the game. Inside this video you will discover:
Coach Fex uses the "Butt and Press" drill to teach defenders how to come off a block. The drill shows players how to snap the defender down and away before "punching a hole in the cloud." Coach Fex also shares a progression of six tackling drills that teach players to shimmy their feet and get chest-to-chest with their heads up. On impact, they club up and grab cloth while driving their feet through the ball carrier.
Fex uses game situations as the source of his tackling drills and techniques. With live demonstrations using high school players, he covers the shimmy drill, target tackling, shimmy to the man, inside out tackle, the bag tackle and the cut back tackle. He also teaches an inside-out tackling technique to help defenders make tackles when they are running toward the sideline.
Cutback tackling is vital as more offenses are creating constant cutback lanes using the zone scheme. Teaching players to pace the hip of the ball carrier teaches them how to prevent cutback lanes that can result in big plays (especially on special teams).
All coaches understand the importance of creating a sound tackling team. With the help this progressive drill package, you can develop tremendous tacklers and, more importantly, minimize severe head and neck injuries.
