breakdown position
Breakdown Position
  • teach good football position which is a position of

leverage, mobility and power;

  • feet should be shoulder width apart with the toes pointed straight ahead.
  • player should dip his body to lower his hips into the power position with knees bent and weight of the body forward on the front of the feet like performing a three-quarter squat lift.
  • chest should remain over the knees while the knees remain over the toes
  • eyes are focused forward and on the target with the hands relaxed hanging outside the knees.
focus aiming point
Focus – Aiming Point
  • eyes of the tackler must be focused on the hip;
  • hip the tackler focuses on will be determined by the angle and by where his help is.
approach
Approach
  • approach is very important when making a tackle and usually means the difference between making the tackle and missing it;
  • approach is closing the distance between you and the ball carrier as quickly as possible while maintaining both good football position and focus mentioned above;
  • important to keep your shoulders square to the aiming point and the feet moving as well as knowing where your help is.
hands and eyes to the sky
Hands and Eyes to the Sky
  • tackler must use legs, hips and lower back in the tackling process;
  • maintaining the power position and focus, just before

contact, bring the hands forward and up in a quick and

powerful motion causing the hips to come forward with

force

  • if the hands do not start forward until after contact, then the tackler is only catching the ball carrier or running into him and will not be able to use his hip strength to stop the ball carrier’s momentum.
hands and eyes to the sky1
Hands and Eyes to the Sky
  • the hands come forward, contact is made with the tackler’s shoulder pad to the ball carrier’s thigh pad
  • head is up and focused on the aiming point of the hips and should slide to the side before contact.
  • contact is made the tackler’s eyes should raise, keeping the head up and the hips in a power position

“slide the head, eyes to the sky”

contact point
Contact Point
  • contact point refers to the area of the tackler’s shoulder pads that makes contact to the aiming point of the ball carrier;
  • ideal contact point is located on the ball carrier’s thigh pad;
  • tackler must maintain the power position
  • keep head up with his shoulders square to the aiming point.
