Episode 2: Elements Overview

In the sec­ond install­ment of this series, the Atavus crew out­lines its approach to the pre-con­tact and con­tact ele­ments of tackling.

Tackling is a skill. And while some peo­ple may have a nat­ur­al tal­ent for it, every­one has to con­stant­ly work at it to get bet­ter and improve. Players at any age and any skill lev­el can con­tin­ue to devel­op as an instinc­tu­al tack­ler through the Atavus Tackling System and its sys­tem­at­ic approach to the technique.

This episode dives into the com­po­nents of a great tack­le, break­ing down the sit­u­a­tions and spe­cif­ic ele­ments that make up a tack­le and giv­ing coach­es the tools to under­stand it. 

Coaches and play­ers will learn about two main com­po­nents of the Atavus Tackle System through­out Episode 2: tack­le sit­u­a­tions and the tack­le process. These key top­ics are the ground­work to great tack­ling, and will set the stage for a deep­er look into tack­le analy­sis in future episodes.
