Episode 7: Universal Language

Having a com­mon lan­guage in your pro­gram is imper­a­tive to devel­op­ing bet­ter tack­lers. But don’t just take our word for it — hear it from All-Pro line­backer Bobby Wagner.

As John Wooden once said, If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”

The impor­tance of hav­ing every­one on the same page is essen­tial for build­ing a com­pet­i­tive pro­gram. It starts by mak­ing sure that every­one is com­mu­ni­cat­ed with the same lev­el of under­stand­ing. The ben­e­fits are infi­nite for both play­ers and coaches. 

In this episode, we dis­cuss the impor­tance of hav­ing a uni­ver­sal lan­guage with All-Pro Seattle Seahawks line­backer Bobby Wagner. We dive into the dynam­ics of a sys­tem­at­ic approach and the inten­tion­al mes­sag­ing need­ed to max­i­mize appli­ca­tion for both play­ers and coaches. 

The top­ics include:

  • Teaching tack­ling sit­u­a­tions and technique
  • The appli­ca­tion of drills, and the role of the coach in them.
  • How play­ers and coach­es mea­sure success. 

Teaching tack­ling can be sim­ple. But teach­ing effec­tive and safe tack­ling takes a lot of plan­ning, and get­ting play­ers to buy into it is even hard­er. Join us in dis­cov­er­ing what you can do tomor­row to build a stronger team cul­ture for more effec­tive and safer tackling. 

Now that you’ve under­stood the pow­er of the data-dri­ven approach to teach­ing effec­tive tack­ling, it’s time to put it into action with your new analy­sis fea­ture. Combining Atavus’ analy­sis with Hudl Assist reports gives you the full pic­ture faster than you’ll ever do on your own.
