Tackle - High School Session Plan - HS with The Rugby Site
We advance the tackle session plan for players at a level where defensive systems are now a part of the game strategy and players are bigger and are moving at a greater speed. Individual and team alignment is important in the tackle decision. Again this training session is set for 40-45mins. Make sure the warm up is effective as players are into contact. You can individualise player skills in this session as well.

Part 6. Tackle Tracking 3:41 Member content
Tackling is part of a team’s defensive system. The tackle itself is executed as an individual or in tandem. This drill starts players to understand the defensive setup and how they fit into it. Plus it gives them a break from the contact.
There are 3 video parts to the defence setup – Tracking, Line Integrity, and Alignment. Start with tracking and then build into line integrity and alignment.
Clarke Laidlaw provides a drill for players to understand tracking.

Good explanation and teachable.
Byron Cooper-Fogarty England
Split the mid-line is a great tip, ensures positive momentum in to the tackle as well as good positioning (same foot, same shoulder).
Keri Lovell Wales
Interesting that he’s moving away from the dance before contact, particularly because its harder to change direction.It makes perfect sense, but I imagine there will be a lot of coaches having to untrain what they have trained.
Good challenge for us!
Simon Northfield Australia
