Goalrilla Tackling Dummy

$119.99


An old statute term for the tackling or furniture of a ship.

Pete Carroll states in the beginning of his video, “[We want to] maintain the physical integrity of the game while developing safer tackling techniques. We desire to play the game as tough as it is meant to be played while also making the game safer.” The techniques shown do not make for a softer type of play. You can see from the examples that there are some physical hits being made. What’s great about these techniques is that they can be done in shorts and t-shirts. This means that working on tackling technique can be done year-round making the game both better and safer.

Our great game of football is under attack. It is our duty as coaches to become better teachers of the game, and strive to coach the best and safest techniques. Carroll’s tackling video is a great starting point.

The next moment Mayo heard the ripping of tackle and a crash.
