Tackling is one of the most fundamental principals of youth tackle football (along with blocking), yet most children fail to grasp the concept due to fear and improper coaching. We came across this wonderful instructional video on how to properly perform a tackle. The video does a fantastic job of illustrating breakdown techniques in order to make bone jarring tackles.
As coaches, we will be teaching your children these basic fundamentals but we expect each parent to continue preaching and practicing these techniques with your child at home during the week. Enjoy the video!
