Regardless of what age group this is a good instructional video as it goes back to the basics for both players and coaches it also gives the players the conference to enjoy tackling and not get hurt.
Anare Koliavu Australia
Love the knees on the ground as it give more control and confidence with least amount of impact and can focus on technique for begginners which is much needed with alot of beginners here.

Simple and effective coaching techniques. Helped identify the “superman” tackle some players were using and have been able to address for better tackling.
