I wanted to pass along an email I received this weekend.
Hi Steve… Received my tackle tube yesterday… Used it last night… Kids loved it!!! The other coaches loved it!!.. Awesome Awesome Awesome!! Bringing it to our board meeting tonight… Our league needs more of them… Thank you again.. Hopefully you’ll be hearing from me again soon.
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.
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!
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
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.
