Football tackling 101
Tackling is fundamental to football, and should receive proper attention at practices. If you, or your players don’t take tackling seriously you will not stop the offense and could also cause injuries. Some points to remember when tackling:
First, you need to stop the opponent quickly so make sure to place yourself directly in front of the opponent’s path. You can do this by placing your foot between your opponent’s feet. At the same time you want to bring your arms back in anticipation for the next phase.
Second, push your other foot keeping your knees low and bent, and in sync with your feet throw your hands up hard around the offensive player. At this point you are well planted in front and your head should be in direct contact.
