Heads Up Tackle Technique

The 5 Fundamentals

  1. BREAKDOWN Position - The foundation starting point for all movements and drills.

  2. BUZZING the Feet - Technique for coming to balance and regaining breakdown position prior to contact.

  3. HIT Position - Correct body posture at moment of impact for safer tackling. Head and eyes are up, using the front of shoulder as point of contact.

  4. The SHOOT - The opening of the hips to generate power and create an ascending tackle.

  5. RIP - With head to the side and away from contact, throw double uppercuts and ‘grab cloth’ on the back of jersey to secure the tackle.
