  • Head on the correct side


    How and why you need to tackle with your head on the right side:

    There are two really obvious reasons why we need to get our head on the correct side.

    1) So we don't get knocked out. 2) So we can make really effective tackles.

    Keep your head up so you can see which way the player is moving and make sure you stay relaxed and don't commit too early.

    Coaches- When dealing with younger players, the attacker may not be as challenging so putting time constraints on the drill forces them to go faster and creates more stress to get them used to playing on the field.
