Hi,

My name is Diontae Trawick, and I am currently deployed to Afghanistan so I will not be able to coach this year. My son will hopefully be playing for a great coach in Alex Monicue with the Southeast Bulldawgs. My son is playing for an 8u team and I saw the YouTube video of Tackle Tube USA on the coaches page and immediately fell in love. I will be home to coach next year but until then they’ll be able to use these at his practices now. I’m super excited about all of the different drills you can do. Teaching these kids good fundamentals and cutting down on this concussion issue. I don’t know when it went away from shoulder pad in the gut, to this dive at people with your head thing but it’s terrible. I’m just glad there are tools like this one to practice good technique. Having a tool to teach safe tackling techniques for these kids is amazing, we are able to get them learning good technique, and good habits to keep them safe and playing this great game. Thanks TackleTube! Steve you’re awesome.

It’s just the next step. It’s the next evolution of football. There’s always something that you’ve got to evolve to. For me, this is it.

The Tackle Tube impresses me for a number of reasons. Firstly it is brilliant for youth development, it builds confidence in beginners, it develops timing and coordination, it ensures body position is safe and correct. It develops skills but it is also excellent for more experienced players as it enhances core skills. It promotes the perfect body position for turning the ball over – the most effective tackle in rugby. Tackle Tube both develops and refines tacking technique. Simple. Excellent

I have found Tackle Tube to be a very effective way to teach young rugby players correct tackle technique. It can stimulate various tackle options and allows players to gain confidence at the same time. If you are serious about developing tackle technique then Tackle Tube is the answer

The Tackle Tube is an excellent technique & defensive decision making tool for schools, youth and senior rugby clubs.  Tackle Tube has multiple uses from Tackle technique, creating target ruck’s, passing target drills and fun games.  I would recommend that all mini, youth and senior coaches consider the Tackle Tube as part of their essential kit.

It’s always the simple ideas that are the most effective; and Tackle Tube is no exception. Great concept, easy to use, fantastic results – cant ask for more

This simple yet ingenious concept works practically well for all levels of rugby and combat/martial arts activities – youth to adults, male or female. I use this product in helping fundamental moment drills for all sports from key stage 1-4 (children 7-16 years). The wheels are versatile, tough, easy to store and carry. The wheels helps tick many boxes for assisting movement, coordination and combat skills. I believe this wheel should be in every Coaches tool kit!

I think this will be an excellent addition to schools and youth rugby clubs. It will encourage boys  to leave their feet when tackling and assist in developing confidence in their defence.

The Tackle Tube is the perfect tool for developing a young players skill and confidence. While not every player is a natural defender, with guidance and hard work, every players can build their skill set to play at their best. Amongst older players, the Tackle Tube keeps drills fresh and allows the boys to work on technique.

I have 15 years’ experience as a Physical Training Instructor coaching numerous sports at varying levels. Tackle Tube is without doubt one of the most functional and enjoyable pieces of equipment I have come across in any sport. Its inclusion in training sessions is guaranteed to generate excitement and enthusiasm in the youth players I am currently working with. As well as great fun the Tackle Tube is perfect for developing the skills required to tackling a moving target!
Thanks Again

The tag belts you kindly donated to the Shelford Under 7 squad have revolutionised the kids performance both in training and on the pitch. With the benefit of the great quality belts their focus is fully on the training/game in hand as the distraction of whether their tags are intact is removed. The squads results are all the testament you need to confirm this.
We will be placing a further order shortly
