Side On Tackle


Set Up:
An activity where players can work on the side on tackle. With all tackle activities, establish safe and solid technique. Players can walk and jog before increasing pace.

Key Factors:
• Tackler tracks across, keeping their eye on the players shorts. Step close, making sure that the shoulder makes contact with the side of the players thigh.
• It is important that the tacklers head is always behind and aiming for cheek to cheek.
• When the tackler makes the tackle, they wrap their arms around the players legs, squeezing tight and falling on top.
