ONLINE RESOURCES TO TEACH BETTER COACHING
01
The Atavus Tackle System™ is based on a shoulder-led technique to improve the safety of athletes, improve their effectiveness and confidence, and give teams a competitive edge.
The first step of our process is breaking down the concept of tackling into both pre-contact and contact phases. There are a variety of skills for athletes to learn in each of these steps that are essential in order to maximize power and control to deliver momentum safely into a successful tackle. Learn how an athlete should evaluate a situation and their potential part in the tackle, decide how to take the best path into contact, and position their body correctly to maximize momentum and power into contact.
02
Atavus and elite coaches have teamed up ...
to create a best in-class tackling certification course focused on supporting coaches to teach athletes how to execute proper movement and technique to play a safer and more effective game of football.
