Teaching Tackling and Trapping the Ball presents a series of developmental drills for teaching tackling techniques. In a step-by-step format that is appropriate for individual, group, and team instruction, the DVD explains and demonstrates the fundamentals involved in sound tackling. The DVD also reviews the steps involved in “trapping the ball”—an approach that is based on a concept that supersedes the more traditional theories of pursuit that have been applied when a defender gets to a ballcarrier. Among the topics covered: footwork, body position, the punch, developmental drills, two-man trap, three-man trap, four-man trap, and seven-man and team trap.
